Edada or Idada | How to make Safed Dhokla

Edada

Edada or Idada is a delicious Dhokla dish from Gujarat and it is also called Safed Dhokla. This is a fermented breakfast dish that can be easily done with a little planning ahead.

Just like the Idlis of South, these white or Safed Dhoklas are steamed and make a wonderful breakfast dish. When it was my search for E in the A to Z Indian Breakfast dishes, I had to struggle a while to see what can be made. I suddenly remembered reading about these Edadas on Vaishali‘s space and I didn’t’ search for any other option.

These are perfectly paired with the green chutney and I made these for our dinner.
