Prepare a steamer filled with water and grease the dhokla plates. Keep aside.

Combine together the ragi flour, rava, yogurt and a little salt in a large mixing bowl. Add a little water at a time to make a thick batter (approximately 1 to 1/2 cups). Allow the mixture to rest for 5 minutes. Stir in the baking powder and pour the batter into the greased dhokla plates.

Pre-heat a steamer with water and place the dhokla batter for steaming. Steam on high heat for about 10 minutes until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean.

Once steamed, remove the Ragi Dhokla from the steamer and keep aside for 5 minutes.

Heat oil in a pan; add in the mustard seeds, sesame seeds and curry leaves and allow it to crackle. Turn off heat and pour the seasoning over the dhokla’s and cut them into squares.

Serve with a chutney of your choice.
