•Prepare green chutney by blending all the ingredients in a mixer and keep it aside.
•Prepare two batters by mixing the ingredients of yellow dhokla and white dhokla (except fruit salt)in separate bowls.
•Pour some water in a pressure cooker / idli steamer and allow it to boil.
•Grease a deep flat bottomed vessel (Thali) with oil. Make sure the vessel can fit into the cooker.
•Take some hot water in a cup, add 1/2 tsp oil and the baking soda, pour it into the bowl of yellow batter and stir well till froth appears. This ensures the dhokla becomes soft and fluffy.
•Then spread the green chutney over it and pour the white batter over it by repeating the same process as with the yellow batter and steam for 10 min. Allow it to cool.
•Cut square shapes or shapes like diamonds and serve hot.
