Pretty u have a great blog. Yummy dhokla

Preety said...

Hi Preety,

I want to make dhokla, but can I substitute with baking powder and butter milk instead of Eno?

Thanks!
Tina

TINA:- I would recommend you to add baking soda instead of baking powder,baking powder won’t be able to leaven the dhokla batter & you can add buttermilk instead of water to make the dhokla batter.

Can you make it without fruit salt or use a substitute?

Preety said...
