Recipe for SAMVAT KE CHAWAL KA DHOKLA /BARNYARD MILLET STEAMED CAKES:
Ingredients for Dhokla Batter:
1 Cup Barnyard Millets (Soaked for 5 hrs)
1/3 Cup Rava(soaked for 5 hrs)
1 Tsp Cumin / Jeera Roasted and crushed
Salt to Taste
1/4 Tsp Haldi / Turmeric
3 Tbsp Buttermilk
4-5 Tbsp Water
1 Tbsp Lemon Juice
1.5 Tsp Baking Powder
1 Tsp Sugar
1 Tsp Oil for greasing
4 Green chillies chopped
15 Curry leaves roughly torn
1 Tsp Mustard seeds
2 Tsp Oil
Apinch of Hing / Asafoetida
Soak barnyard millet and rava for 5 hours. Drain the water and grind the millet and rava to get a fine paste.Ensure there are no grains. To this mixture add buttermilk, lemon juice,roasted and crushed Cumin,salt, haldi,sugar and baking soda. Mix all the ingredients and then add water as needed to get a nice lump free mixture. Blend it with hand mixture to incorporate more air in the mixture.This will make the dhoklas light and fluffy. Transfer this mixture to a greased plate and steam it for 15 to 20 mins. You can insert a toothpick to check it is perfectly steamed.
Remove from the steamer and allow it to cool. In a wok add oil. Once the oil is hot add mustard seeds, curry leaves and chopped chillies and hing. Pour the tempering on the steamed cake /dhokla ,cut into desired shape and serve it with green chutney.

Lovely! I’m always looking out for new things to make with millets, and am so going to try this out soon. 🙂 Do you think I could use proso millet or kodo millet in place of barnyard millet?
