Khaman Dhokla is usually made in a thali in a steamer. But nowadays most households have microwaves at home. So here I'm presenting our own Gujarati Traditional Khaman Dhokla in Microwave Mug. Now you don't need to snack in large quantities. :) Love M #ChefMeghna #KhamanDhokla #GujaratiRecipe

Today we 'll make Khaman Dhokla in a mug
In a bowl, take 3/4th Cup Besan
Add Salt per taste
Add Sugar per taste 
Add one finely chopped green chili
Add a small finely chopped ginger
Add 3/8th cup Curd (Half of Besan Quantity)
Curd should be half of the quantity of Besan
Add 2 tsp Oil
Mix it gently
Add water step by step
Too much water will make dhokla batter too thin
Add 1/2 tsp Turmeric Powder
Add 1 tsp Fruit Salt 
And some more water
Gently mix it
Take microwave-proof mug
Fill the mug halfway with the Khaman mix
Place the mug in the microwave for 2.1/2 minute at high temperature
Depending upon the oven, you might have to increase 30 seconds more
Time to prepare Tadka
Take a small pan, heat up the flame
2 tsp oil 
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
When the mustard seeds begin to crackle
add 1/4 tsp Asofoetida & Fresh Curry Leaves
add salt per taste
Slow down the flame
Add 2 tbs water now
And finally, add 1/2 spoon sugar
Let it come to a boil
Tadka is ready
Pour tadka on Khaman Dhokla & leave it for 5 minutes
So that all that water gets absorbed by Khaman Dhokla
