Sooji-Vermicelli Dhokla/Rawa-Semiya Dhokla

By Priya Srinivasan - I Camp in My Kitchen - Friday, November 19, 2010

You can Call it Dhokla or call it Idly or u can even say it a Steamed Cake!!!! But, I call it an easy to make Dish, on a very lazy, don't feel like cooking day!!!! Had some already roasted rawa-vermicelli, all i have to do was to mix in some yoghurt and steam it!!!! 

1 cup of Semolina/Rawa/Sooji
1/2 cup of Vermicelli
4-5 green chillies
1 tsp grated ginger
1 cup of Whisked yoghurt
1 cup of Buttermilk
Salt to taste
1 tsp of Baking soda

Dry Roast Semolina and Vermicelli Separately. Mix them together and add the rest of the ingredients to it. Mix well, it should be of idly-batter consistency.
 If the batter is too thick, add another half cup of butter milk to it. Grease a flat plate, pour the batter and steam cook until done. Once cool, cut them into squares and serve with some Chutney!!! We had ours with some Ketchup!!!
