This is a Gujarati dish. I like to know various traditional dishes so I am watching  cookery shows on different channels off and on. But I don’t follow every recipe.I prefer low calorie food only. Dhokla recipe is very healthy tasty and easy to make. When I am boring to prepare food, simply I prefer to make dhokla. My husband also likes it very much.
