A fluffy chickpea spiced cake with tempered oil including mustard seeds, cilantro, spicy green chilies, and other spices. Perfect savory snack or side dish with Indian food. This recipe originated in the state of Gujarat in India. There are many variations to it, but one that is local to the Surat district includes whole chickpeas that are soaked, blended, and then steamed. The final result can be eaten as is with spices called Locho Khaman or topped with tempered oil.

Why are there so many Khaman variations?
I have made many variations of Khaman, but this is the tried and true traditional recipe! When I say traditional, I mean Surati Traditional. This refers to the city of Surat, in the State of Gujarati, in the country India :). The food is cooked very differently throughout India regardless of it being called the same dish; for Instance-“Chicken Curry”. Surati Khaman Dhokla is made with whole chick-peas versus chick-pea flour (aka-besan). Both have different texture and taste, but taste great!

Does it take long to make khaman?
Yes, it does. These Surati Khaman Dhokla take a while to make, because ...
... of the soaking and fermenting. But the end result is JUST.SO.WORTH.IT. It’s healthy, tasty, and filling! I tend to make large batches because the end product refrigerates so well.
Can I make khaman in a microwave?
YES! I have made this surati khaman recipe in a mug and its perfect for a quick snack. Add equal amounts of water and batter and cook for about 5 minutes or until done. Top it with some oil and spices then enjoy with a spoon right of the mug.

Is this khaman recipe kid friendly?
Of course! Eliminate the chili peppers and whatever else your little one does not like. I make it with just chickpeas, ginger, eno (fruit salt), and table salt for my kids. If you are making it for a baby then you can also eliminate the salt. Feel free to add spinach, beets, etc to your khaman batter before cooking. The khaman will not fluff well but

How can I make Locho Khaman?

Using this same batter recipe you can make Locho Khaman. Locho Khaman is when you do not cut the chickpea cake once it has been cooked and immediately remove the cooked khaman using a spatula. Top it with your favorites. My favorite Locho Khaman toppings are shredded amul cheese and chaat masala +red chili powder. Trust me on this one!
