Take a ceramic mug, brush it with oil or cooking spray.
Add 4 tbsp of Rava, 2 tbsp of curd, salt to taste, ¼ tsp of ginger-garlic paste, 1 finely chopped green chili, and a pinch of baking soda in the mug. Adding turmeric powder is optional. Give it a stir.
Then add water to make the batter creamy in texture. The batter should have a pouring consistency. Mix everything well.
Microwave it for about 1 minute and 30 seconds. Keep it aside.
Making the tempering:
Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a small pan. Once, the oil is hot, add ⅛ tsp of asafoetida, ¼ tsp of mustard seeds, and some curry leaves. Adding 1 whole red chili is optional. Let it pop and then pour it on top of the dhokla to enhance the flavor. Your Instant Rava Dhokla is ready to serve.
