Place the dhokla plate in a steamer and steam for about 10-15 minutes on low flame, until the dhokla’s are cooked.
For seasoning, heat oil in a small frying pan and add the mustard seeds and curry leaves. Once the crackle, turn off heat and add lemon juice to it. Now drizzle the seasoning over the dhokla’s.
