Buckwheat Dhoklas

  • 1 1/4 cups buckwheat kuttu atta 1/2 cup sour curd khatta dahi 1 tsp green chilli paste
  • 1/4 tsp ginger (adrak paste)
  • salt to taste


  1. Clean and wash the buckwheat in enough water only once. Washing it more will cause the starch to drain out.
  2. Drain the excess water using a strainer.
  3. Combine the buckwheat, curd and ½ cup of water in a deep bowl and mix well. Cover with a lid and keep aside to soak for at least 4 to 5 hours.
  4. Add the green chilli paste, ginger paste and salt and mix very well.
  5. Pour half of the batter into a greased 175 mm. (7″) diameter thali and spread evenly by rotating the thali clockwise.
  6. Steam in a steamer for 10 to 12 minutes or till the dhoklas are cooked.
  7. Repeat steps 5 and 6 to make 1 more thali.
  8. Cool slightly, cut into pieces and serve immediately.
Handy tip:

At step 3, allow the mixture to soak for at least 4 hours in summer season. In winter season the soaking time should be increased to 5 hours and if needed to 6 hours depending on the temperature. This will ensure soft dhoklas at the end.
