Easy Gujarati Breakfast Recipe

Although it may seem simpler to skip breakfast when mornings are difficult, it's crucial to get your day started on the right foot. To have a nice breakfast when you wake up, you must have some simple breakfast dishes that you can prepare in a few quick steps or overnight. Therefore, to help you start your morning off right, here are four simple Gujarati breakfast recipes.

1) Khaman Dhokla:

This tangy-sweet and spongy dish are utterly mouth-watering. It has a hit of spice because of the green chillies and the freshness from the coriander makes it extra special! These dhoklas are soaked in sweet and tangy syrup along with a tempering made with mustard seeds, curry leaves and green chillies. 

Let's have a look at the ingredients and the method to make it.


  • 1 ½ cup gram flour (besan)
  • 1 ½ cup semolina (sooji)
  • ½ tsp turmeric powder
  • 4 tsp Sugar
  • salt to taste
  • 3 tbsp Oil
  • 1 tsp Lemon Juice
  • 1 tsp ginger-green chilli paste
  • 1 tsp fruit salt
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp sesame
  • pinch of Vasant Masala's Supreme Asafoetida (hing)
  • 5-6 curry leaves
  • 1 tsp green chillies


  • In a deep bowl, whisk together the besan, semolina, sugar, ginger-green chilli paste, turmeric powder, lemon juice, salt, and about 3⁄4 cup of water to produce a thick batter for the khaman dhokla.
  • Add the fruit salt just before steaming, and stir gently.
  • In a 175 mm (7") diameter oiled thali, immediately pour the mixture and spread it evenly by turning the thali in a clockwise direction.
  • The dhoklas should be steamed for about 10 to 12 minutes in a steamer. Keep aside and cool it a little.
  • In a tiny nonstick skillet, heat the oil before adding the mustard seeds.
  • Sesame seeds, asafoetida, curry leaves, and green chillies should be added when the seeds begin to pop. This should be done on a medium burner for 30 seconds.
  • Mix thoroughly after adding a half cup of water.
  • Then uniformly pour the tempering over the dhoklas. Wait five minutes to ensure that all of the water has been absorbed.
  • Khaman dhokla should be served right away with green chutney after being cut into pieces and garnished with coriander and coconut.

2) Masala Khakhra:

This dish is the easiest to pull off and requires very less ingredients. Khakhra is the one snack available at every Gujarati place. You can transform this snack into a healthy or low-calorie lunch by topping it with a delicious salad or use khakhra as a tortilla chip and your salad as 'Indian' salsa. Let's see how to make this!


  • 1 finely chopped onion
  • 1 finely chopped tomato
  • 1 finely chopped capsicum
  • 1 finely chopped green chilli
  • add protein of choice (lentils or sprouts)
  • chopped coriander
  • 1 tsp lemon juice


  • Take a deep bowl. Add all the ingredients to that bowl.
  • Mix everything well. Once well combined, top the khakhra with this mixture and enjoy!
  • For better taste, you can also add Vasant Masala's Chaat Masala Powder!

  • Add the remaining oil once more and keep kneading.
  • Keep kneading until all of the water has been absorbed.
  • Give the dough 30 minutes to rest.
