Dhokla is a vegetarian food item that originates from the Indian state of Gujarat. It is made with a fermented batter derived from rice and split chickpeas. Dhokla can be eaten for breakfast, as a main course, as a side dish, or as a snack. Dhokla is very similar to Khaman, however Dhokla is made of batter derived from rice gram and is white in color, whereas Khaman is typically made from Chickpeas gram and looks yellow in color. Khaman has become widly popular outside Gujarat but is misunderstood or incorrectly known as Dhokla.
