Amiri Khaman - Delicious Vegetarian Recipe

A delicious spicy teatime snack. Will be loved by all.

Preparation Time: 30 mins
Cooking Time: 40 mins
Makes 8 to 10 servings


450 gms chana dal (split bengal gram)
25 of ginger (adrak)
6 green chillies
1 tsp soda bi-carb
1/2 tsp turmeric powder (haldi)
4 tbsp oil
2 tsp mustard seeds ( rai / sarson)
1/4 tsp asafoetida (hing)
20 garlic (lehsun) cloves , finely chopped
juice of 2 large lemons
3 tbsp powdered sugar
salt to taste

For Decoration:
2 cups sev
2 tbsp grated fresh coconut
2 tbsp chopped coriander (dhania)

Preparation Method:

Soak the dal for at least 6 hours.
Leave 4 tablespoons of dal aside and grind the rest with the green chillies and ginger.
Add the whole (unground) dal.
Add the soda bi-carb, turmeric powder and salt, mix well.
Keep the mixture aside for at least 4 hours.
Spread a little mixture at a time in a thali (flat metal plate with low rim) and steam to make dhoklas. Repeat for the remaining mixture.
Cool and crumble.
Add the sugar, lemon juice and a little salt and mix well.
Heat the oil in a vessel and add the mustard seeds. When they stop popping, add the garlic, fry for a few seconds, add the asafoetida and fry again for a few seconds.
Pour this mixture on top of the crumbled dhoklas.
Decorate with chopped coriander, grated coconut and sev and serve.

Handy tip:

Always use your hands while mixing the batter to break the lumps.
