Method of Preparation:
- Mix all the ingredients except for oil and fruit salt without any lumps.
- Let it rest for 15 minutes. Boil water in a pressure cooker.
- When the water begins to boil, add the eno fruit salt. The batter will become fluffy.
- Now take a round 9″ pan and coat it with oil or we can use dhokla plates.
- Transfer the batter to the pan and keep it in the pressure cooker.
- Pressure cook like how we do Idlies in medium heat for 15 minutes.
- Turn off the heat and transfer it to a wire rack.
- Heat oil in the seasoning pan and add mustard seeds followed by the sesame seeds and green chillies.
- Turn off the heat and add the grated coconut.
- Garnish with coriander leaves.

- Serve it with coriander/mint chutney and sweet chutney
- Adding green chilli coriander paste is totally optional. Since I have added it, the color is greenish yellow.
- Adding turmeric is also optional.
