*Leftover magic...........

Amiri Khaman

There is leftover Khaman dhokla in your kitchen and you are wondering what to do with it,dont worry!!!! Just do what I usually do when I am in a similar situation.......turn those tasty khaman dhoklas into much tastier 'AMIRI KHAMAN'.

Whattttt...... you don't know this recipe,you have never tasted it ? Then make it fast.Once you make this dish I am sure you will love it and never forget it. Its a Gujarati delicacy.The actual process of making Amiri khaman is different. You have to soak the dals,its a bit tidious process. What I am going to show is an easier way of making it.

The taste is a little better when you follow the long process.But in this method you will save your time and you can make the best use of leftovers. So are you ready....?

  • Leftover khaman Dhoklas - 6-8 no.s
  • Juice of half lemon
  • Oil - 2 tsp
  • Green chillies - 2 (cut lengthwise)
  • Curry leaves - 3-4
  • Ginger(grated or paste) - 2 tsp
  • Garlic (grated or finely chopped) - 1 tsp
  • Mustard seeds -1 tsp
  • Sesame seeds - 1 tsp
  • Sugar to taste
  • Salt to taste

For garnishing:

  • Cilantro,finely chopped - 1/2 tbsp
  • Nylon sev - 1 tbsp
  • Grated coconut (fresh) - 1 tbsp

*You can also add Pomegranate


  • First crumble the dhoklas by hand and keep them aside.
  • Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds, sesame seeds, curry leaves ,green chillies, ginger and garlic.

  • Then add the dhokla crumbles,sugar and salt.Mix well.

  • Cook for about 5 mins covered.Once again mix well and put off the flame.

  • Garnish with chopped cilantro, sev and grated coconut and serve.

Serves - 2
