About the Recipe

Navratri Special Dhokla for Vrat. Dhokla is a popular and traditional Indian recipe originating from Gujarat. One of the key issues that people face when steaming dhokla is that it gets stuck to the pan. When we take it out, the shape gets broken. Ecobake helps in getting the perfect dhokla shape without any greasing and no need for cleaning afterward.
