Sesame- 1/2 tsp
Asafoetida - a pinch
Jeera - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric - 1/2 tp
Green chillies -2 sliced

For the Garnish:
Grated coconut - few tsp
Chopped Corriander leaves

1.  Tie yogurt in  a cheese cloth to get the cheese
2.  Mix this to the besan with a little yogurt  and add salt, sugar, chilli and ginger paste and rest for a 3-4 hours.
3.  Just before steaming the dhoklas add the eno fruit salt and steam for 10 minutes till toothpick comes out clean.
4.  After it cools makes a seasoning of mustard, asafotida, jeera, turmeric, sesame, green chillies and pour on the dhoklas
5.  Cut to pieces, garnish with grated fresh coconut and chopped corriander leaves.
