Rice Dhokla

4.30 from 6 votes

Rice Dhokla is a healthy snack. I have used Gobindobhog rice which I have received as part of Belly Nirvana Campaign in association with Place of Origin. Gobindobhog rice is a type of fragrant rice which gives a nice flavour to your rice dhokla. If you prepare the rice flour well in advance the dhokla can be prepared instantly. This recipe calls for steaming method which is again a healthy method. It also requires very less oil.
