Instant Khatta Dhokla Recipe

I don't have a steamer so I have used a microwave for this recipe. If you have a steamer then you can use the same recipe. In a steamer it may take around 15-20 minutes to cook the Dhokla.
1/2cup rice flour
1/4cup chickpea flour (Besan)
3/4cup rava/semolina/suji
1/4cup yogurt(make sure it is sour)
1/4tsp citric acid (Use this just in case the yogurt is not very sour)
Salt and sugar to taste
Ginger paste,as per taste (I have used almost 2tsp ginger paste)
Green chili paste,as per taste (I have used 1tsp chili paste)
1tsp eno (fruit salt)
1tsp sesame seeds
2-3tbsp oil
1/2tsp kashmeri red chili powder
Tempering Ingredients:
1/2tsp mustard seeds
2tbsp oil
A pinch of asafoetida
In a bowl mix the rice flour,chickpea flour and the rava together. Make sure you sieve the chickpea flour before adding it to the bowl.
Add salt,sugar,ginger-chili paste,yogurt,and oil. Mix all the ingredients well.
Add little water at a time to make a batter. The consistency of the batter is shown in the video below.

Take a flat bottom microwave dish and grease it well. 
Now add the fruit salt/eno to this batter and mix well.Pour the batter instantly in the dish,sprinkle red chili powder and sesame seeds. Let the dhokla cook on 60% power for 7-10 minutes in the microwave. The time can vary for different microwaves so keep a close eye. A toothpick inserted at the center of the dish should come clean once the Dhokla is cooked.
For the tempering heat oil in a tadka pan, add mustard seeds. When the mustard seeds start to splutter add the asafoetida. Pour this evenly on the Dhokla.
You can garnish with coriander leaves before serving.
Instant Khatta Dhokla is ready.
