Dhokla is a popular snack of Gujarat. It is soft, spongy and makes a delicious  snack with tea.  It is usually made of gram flour by the method of fermentation. Today, I am presenting to you an enriched version of the popular khaman dhokla. It is known as  Tricolur dhokla . As the name indicates, it has three layers of different colours, white,green and yellow.

I learnt making dhokla long back as it is one of my favourites. Some pointers before I proceed to the recipe. It is essential to have sour curds, but do not use that is kept lying for a long time. All the hard work should not go away.  Fermentation time changes according to the season. Winters need longer time than summers.

Here is a collage of the making of dhokla. Pictorial representation is below
