I was just doing the housework when I had a sudden craving for dhokla. I didn't feel like getting everything out to make steamed dhoklas and so I found this recipe. Well....I was munching these delicious microwave dhoklas only 5 minutes later! My craving was met and then (sadly) I had to get back to the housework! Thanks Preety! From Meeta
