Mug Dhokla/ savory muffin in minutes

Move on from the mug cakes to savory muffins if you crave for a sweet tangy or sour & spicy snack in the evenings. Making dhoklas in microwave is very easy but when you are making in large quantities it is better to follow the instructions provided along with the dishes provided for steaming.

For smaller or individual cups you can easily stick to the recipe below

3 tbsp semolina
1 tspn salt or as per taste
2 tbsp papaya preserve mixed in 1 tbsp water / 2 tbsp curd
½ tspn white sesame seeds
½ tspn sugar (optional if using preserve)
½ tspn citric acid + 
a pinch of baking soda OR Fruit salt
½ tspn crushed black pepper
½ tspn crushed green or red chilli
½ tspn Vegetable oil
1) Mix all ingredients in a bowl.
2) In a fairly large mug, pour the batter (should be cake like or little thinner) Add water if it is not enough fluid
3) Microwave on high for 2 min.

Enjoy with more preserve, curd or chutney of your choice
