Dhokla is a vegetarian culinary dish that is found mainly in the Indian state of Gujarat and parts of adjacent states. It is made with a fermented batter derived from rice and split chickpeas. Dhokla can be eaten for breakfast, as the main course, as a side dish or as a snack. It is usually served with green chutney made of coriander. It is garnished with coriander and often with grated coconut.

In a large bowl, add gram flour, turmeric, green chilli paste and salt. Add water and whisk to ensure there are no lumps and you have a smooth batter.
Now add lemon juice and Eno to this mixture. It will start to bubble. Mix everything well.
Immediately pour this batter into a greased tin.
Steam the batter for 10-12 minutes. Let it cool and then cut into squares.
In a pan, heat the oil and add some mustard seeds. Once they crackle, pour this over the dhokla.
Garnish with chopped coriander leaves and serve with green chutney.
