1 minute microwave khaman dhokla in mug (Jain / no onion, no garlic)

Dhokla is a vegetarian food item that originates from the Indian state of Gujarat. It is made with a fermented batter derived from rice and split chickpeas.

Khaman is a similar gram flour-based food. Whereas dhokla is made with rice and chickpeas, khaman is made from chickpeas only. It is generally lighter in color and softer than dhokla, to make dhokla small proportion of baking soda is added while in khaman more baking soda is added to make it more fluffy spongy and porous.

Although a Gujarati snack, it has become increasingly popular across India, as well as in other regions with a sizeable Gujarati community.
