can u pls explain how to cook it properly?

thanks :)

Kajal said...

Hi Vilasini,

Thanks for your nice words.
First of all not add much water or buttermilk for preparing the material and when you cook just see that your stem of water is not drop of your dokhal when it is stemming. When you turn off the flame then your stem is not drop over the cook dhokla. I think when your cook then just checks it for stem.
