Corn (sweet corn)Dhokla

When I was watching a cooking show on TV I saw a similar kind of recipe...They haven't show how to prepare,but ingredients was shown.So I felt this is one interesting recipe which we can also prepare for the kids.In the place of normal Dhokla if you try this,,,every one will feel different and this is my try to make a different recipe..for kids as well as adults...

sweet corn 2cup( i have used frozen)
Rice flour 1/2 cup(use more 1/4 if required)
Yogurt(curd) 1/2 cup
fresh ginger 1 inch finely chopped
fresh coriander finely chopped 3TBSP
fruit salt or baking soda(i have used baking soda)
lemon juice 1TBSP
salt to taste
green chilly finely chopped 2(or as per spice)
cooking oil 3-4TBSP

(In the ingredients I have shown sugar powder in a spoon,which I have not mention in the recipe,,because I used the sugar powder but as sweet corn only is having good sweet taste i don't suggest all of you to use the sugar)
Roughly blend the corn(don't make smooth paste).In mixing bowl add this corn,curd and all other ingredients(except oil) ,mix everything well and make a thick batter..

apply 1/2 tsp oil on the bottom of the pan and pour the batter, level it and keep covered for 1/2 hour.

Now keep the pan in steamer and steam it for 15-20 mins(can also cook in pressure cooker with out Waiter).Once done take out the pan and keep aside to cool down for 15min then cut in any shape you like,as the dhokla's will be square i have used the same shape.
Heat tava(used to make pancake) sprinkle 1tsp of oil now keep the steamed dhokla one by one,cook both side till the brown spots appears(press them in between so that it should cook inside properly).The yummy Dhokla is ready to serve..

Serve hot with tomato sauce..I am sure ,Kids will love this in any time...

If you are preparing for kids don't use green chilly,use crushed or powdered black pepper 1/2 tsp.
