Dhokla– In a bowl take rava and curd in 1:1 ratio and prepare a batter using little bit of water. The batter should not be too runny neither it should be too thick. To this add ginger paste and salt and leave it for 20 minutes. In the meanwhile prepare colored purees for the green and orange color. You can use food color also but its always better to go in for natural ingredients instead of chemicals. For green color use a puree of spinach, green chilies and coriander leaves, and for the orange one use a puree of tomato with little bit of turmeric powder in it.
