Dhokla – vegetarian food item that originates from Gujarat. It is made with a fermented batter derived from rice and split chickpeas. Dhokla can be eaten for breakfast, as a main course, as a side dish, or as a snack.
Both dhokla and khaman (also called nylon dhokla) are two different dishes originating from Gujarat. Most people use the names interchangeably but khaman and dhokla are not one and the same.
