I missed my regular posting time and made it late last night and that too in Microwave for a quicker version. The Dhokla tasted great so I would be making it again in the regular method as well. Since it was going to be a quick version, I steamed it in small bowls to be individual servings. You can follow the regular method of steaming it in a bigger plate and slicing it down.
The fresh sweet corn nibbles add to the taste and this surely is a great snack for the kids.
