When you add the seasoning-to make the dhokla softer, once the seasoning of mustard seeds, hing powder ( optional), green chilies and curry leaves is ready, add to it a tbsp of yogurt mixed with a tbsp of water and pour equally over all the pieces. This is a secret even the temple has not passed on!
