Khaman Dhokla

As a kid Khaman Dhokla has been my favourite.I don't remember the first time I tasted it but knew the dish and name since school days. Ofcourse it was introduced by our Bombay relatives which I had mentioned in some post.....I love Gujarati dishes and not only enjoy preparing it but also like to relish it.Khaman Dhoklas are very easy to prepare and is a popular Gujarati farsan.
