Oats Cracked Wheat Spinach Dhokla


I wanted to cook a different breakfast with oats, and when I was browsing, I came across Oats, semolina and spinach dhokla in Tara Dalal site.  It was a healthy recipe and tempted me. I tried the same recipe, replacing semolina with cracked wheat.

Oats Cracked Wheat Spinach Dhokla

Preparation Time : 5  mins | Standing time : 15 mins | Cooking Time : 10 mins 

Recipe Category: Breakfast


Oats – 1/2 cup, coarsely powdered

Cracked Wheat/ Gothuma Rava/ Bulgar Wheat/Dalia – 1/2 cup

Thick Curd/ yogurt – 1/4 cup

Spinach – 1/3 cup

Green chilli  paste – 1/2 tsp ( Adjust according to your taste)

Baking Soda/Eno salt – 1/2  tsp, heaped (I used baking soda)

Salt  – as needed


  • Combine all the ingredients except baking soda and add 3/4 cup of water, and let it rest for 15 minutes
  • Just before steaming, add the baking soda and 2 tsp of water
  • Grease the dhokla plates with very less oil  and pour the batter. Spread them evenly


  • Steam them for 10 minutes, or till the dhoklas are cooked. After 5 minutes, cut them and serve


My Notes:

  • Cooking time may vary depending on the container, so keep an eye after 7 minutes
  • Can add tadka and make them flavorful
  • If required, pulse the cracked wheat
