What is Rasawala Khaman Dhokla?

Khaman is a very popular Gujarati snack (to be precise it comes from Surat), made by steaming gram flour batter and thereafter tempering the same with mustard seeds, chilies, etc. When the prepared khaman is dipped and soaked in a sweet cum tangy cum spicy cum flavored rasa (thin gravy, sort of), the essence of khaman increases manifolds and it becomes rasawala khaman. It is not only an innovative way to serve the khaman but can also be used to revamp the leftover khaman or dry khaman.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Rasawala Khaman Dhokla

Khaman: You can prepare the khaman using the recipe given here. After preparing it, I realized that I should have prepared khaman with less height, as that would have absorbed the rasa so much better.

Rasa (thin sauce): I have used mustard seeds and green chilies for the tempering. Jaggery and tamarind pulp add the contrasting flavors, red chili powder adds the required heat and then goes in lots of water. Although the quantity might vary depending upon how moist your khaman is a lot is added.

That’s it!! Yayy!

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
