Khaman, before cut into pieces.

Khaman is a food common in the Gujarat state of India made from soaked and freshly ground channa dal or channa flour (also called gram flour or besan).

The final touch to the soft and fluffy khaman is added with a garnishing of sesame seeds, mustard seeds, coriander leaves and even curry leaves.[1] People who savour the taste of coconut may add some grated coconut on the top to enhance the flavour. It is a preferred variant of Dhokla and has a lighter colour.[2]
