Easy soft spongy instant Rava dhokla

Rava dhokla

All of us try besan dhokla regularly, but have we noticed the Indian shops sell white dhokla too, that is also super soft (has a softer texture than besan dhokla). This recipe is a microwave rava dhokla recipe, takes less time and worth every effort.


  • 1 cup rava (sooji)
  • 1/2 cup yoghurt
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp soda (I generally prefer soda over eno powder)

For tadka:

  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 2 tsp Mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp Cumin seeds
  • Few Curry leaves
  • 1 tsp Lemon juice
  • 1 tsp Sugar (lemon juice and sugar quantity depends on your taste)
  • 2-3 long cut green chillies
  • Salt as per taste (carefully add as we have added in dhokla batter too)
  • Cut Coriander leaves for flavour
  • 4 tbsp water
  • Grated coconut as per taste


  • Soak 1 cup rava (sooji) in 1/2 cup yoghurt and 1/2 cup water for 20-30 min.
  • Add 1/2 tsp soda and stir nicely.
  • Grease a microwave dish and pour the rava dhokla batter in the dish, it should be covered partially while we microwave.
  • Microwave for 4-5 min, check using a fork/knife. If it comes clean and nice, means it’s cooked properly, otherwise keep it again for 30 sec.
  • After it cools, cut it into pieces.
  •  Heat 1 tbsp cooking oil, add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, curry leaves.
  • After spluttering, add salt, sugar, lemon juice and water.
  • Add to the cut pieces of dhokla. Let the water rest for 10-15 min.
  •  It’s ready to be served.
