Originating from the state of Gujarat, dhokla is a snack which has a soft and spongy texture and is prepared by steaming and is thereafter tempered and garnished to give a burst of flavours. Typically, a dhokla is prepared using a fermented batter of rice and dal and is supposed to be white in color. A variant of dhokla is prepared using chickpeas flour or gram flour i.e. besan, it is actually khaman. The terms khaman and dhokla are often used inter-changeably and I have yet to find a Gujarati person who can tell me the truth :D.
