* I used 1/2 sachet of antacid powder which contains sodium bicarbonate and citric acid.

Grind the green chillies and ginger with little water.Take a bowl and add the flour, chopped vegetables,salt, turmeric powder, curd ,lime juice and green chilli paste. Mix the ingredients to a thick batter.let it sit for ten minutes. Heat water in a steamer/idli cooker. Grease a deep dish or a plate with oil. Add the Eno salt just before you pour the batter in the plate and put it in the steamer. Steam cook for about 10 - 15 minutes or until done. Let it cool and turn it over. Heat 1/2 tsp oil and add mustard seeds, curry leaves and cumin seeds. Once the mustard seeds splutter add it on top of the dhokla.
