Khaman Dhokla

Dhokla is one of my favorite tea time snack.....wanted to make it for a long time.
This was one of the snacks introduced to me by my sister, as she loves trying new recipes.
As a kid, i was so particular about my food that i would never go for something new, thinking that it will spoil my state buds, but when i tasted this i really liked it!!
Finally I made this on my own and turned out soft, spongy and tasted good.
Do try this recipe of mine and let me know if you didn't love eating it :)
