 suggestion

 1. You can also use 1tsp eno fruit salt instead of baking soda in Dhokla.

 2. Before placing the plate fill of batter, the water kept in the steamer should come to a boil and steam the dhokla on medium heat, this will make the dhokla spongy.

 3. Beat the dhokla batter in the same direction, this will make the dhokla soft and light.

     *** You can eat semolina dhokla with breakfast or tea in the evening.  Even if we are going on a picnic, we can enjoy making semolina dhokla and eating it.  Apart from this, children can also be given by filling them in the lunch box.
