This is a famous sweet of gujarathi.. Me being a hard core keralite at first didnt know what dhokhla was. At first time in dubai when i had it with a friend of mine, i actually didnt like it..can u believe it!!!!.. then another day I ahd this in one of my family friends house. They were Maharashtrians. The instant i ate this I fell in love with it :)..From that onwards i have recipe in my mind to make it and finally i did. Its very less time consuming and as soon as it was amde i could hardly see it in the plate for more than 15 mins :)...poof vanished!!.. planning to make again this weekend :)...
