Corn Flour Dhokla

Day 3 Week 1 of BM #53 - 

I had this recipe bookmarked a long time back but was able to make this for the kids as an after school snack just recently.

The kids loved the corn kernels which they bit into. Moreover I made it less spicy for the little one and the adults had it with a spicy chutney on the side.

Recipe Source Tarla Dalal
Ingredients - 

Corn Flour 1 cup
Corn Kernels, 1/2 cup
Sour Curds 1/2 cup (I used sour cream and buttermilk)
Ginger-Green Chili paste as needed
Sugar 1 tsp
Lemon Juice 1 tsp
ENO Fruit Salt 1 tsp
Asafoetida 2 pinches
Salt as needed

Seasoning (Oil 2 tsp, Mustard Seeds 1/2 tsp, Sesame Seeds 1 Tbsp, Asafoetida a pinch)

Garnish - Fresh shredded Coconut and chopped coriander leaves

Corn Flour Dhokla

Method Of Preparation -

Mix the corn flour and sour curds with ½ cup of warm water in a bowl to make a smooth batter. Keep aside for at least 30 minutes.

Add the sweet corn, ginger-green chili paste, asafoetida, sugar, lemon juice and oil and mix well.

Add the ENO fruit salt, mix gently and pour the batter into a greased plate or Dhokla plate. Steam for 15 to 20 minutes. Keep aside to cool.

Prepare the seasoning by heating the oil in a pan and adding the mustard seeds and sesame seeds.

After the seeds crackle, add the asafoetida and I would sprinkle a teaspoon water and pour it over the dhokla.

Cool slightly and cut into desired shaped pieces. Serve hot garnished with shredded coconut and coriander leaves.
