    Once it starts to change color then simmer the gas flame and add oats and again dry roast the soji oats mixture for about 1 minute and turn off the flame.
    Keep on stiring the soji oats mixture so that the soji oats mixture does not gets burnt as the pan is still hot.

    Add a little water just to make a thick batter and again mix it well.

    In a steamer, add water and let it get boiled.
    Take a plate and grease it with oil.
    Pour the rested soji oats dhokla mixture in this greased plate.
    Steam this dhokla for about 15-20 minutes and check with knife otherwise, steam it for other 5 minutes.
    Give a standing time for about 5 minutes to dhokla and then take it out and cut into square small pieces.
