A new interesting post for all snack lovers...Instant Microwave Dhokla!

Dhokla is one of my loved snacks to satisfy the 4 O'Clock hunger. This time of the day when all I need is a good hot cup of tea with something to munch....not too heavy snack but something light yet filling.
I make a lot of tea time snacks to satisfy my cravings of something yummy and yet hassle free. This is easiest and quickest of all!
Yes...this time I made this dhokla in Microwave and voila!....it's ready in no time.

I had put a recipe of Dhokla earlier too...that's the regular preparation one...this one is quick.
Even if guests arrive and you do not have much snacks to offer then this is something you can make in no time they will wonder what magic did u do in there!

 Try this recipe and enjoy with hot cuppa tea!
