Readymade idli batter, with a little alterations, acts as a neat quick-fix for dhoklas! With some carrots mixed into it, it gets a little colourful too. Served with green chutney, you get a nice contrast as well! All of this makes the Quick Carrot Dhokla quite attractive to moms and kids as a tiffin treat. It stays fresh and soft in the dabba for at least 5 hours, and all kids are sure to enjoy it. Also pack some Chatpata Pomegranate ( Tiffin Treats) in another tiffin for a perfect short break combo.
- Grease a 175 mm. (7") diameter thali using a little oil. Keep aside.
- Combine all the ingredients in a deep bowl along with approx. 2 tbsp of water and mix well.
- Just before steaming, sprinkle the fruit salt over the batter and pour 1 tbsp of water evenly over it.
- When the bubbles form, mix gently.
- Divide the batter into 2 equal portions.
- Pour one portion of the batter immediately into the greased thali and tilt the thali clockwise to spread it evenly to make an even layer.
- Sprinkle a little chilli powder evenly over it and steam in a steamer for 10 minutes or till the dhoklas are cooked.
- Brush little oil on top, cool slightly and cut into diamond shaped equal pieces.
- Repeat steps 6 to 8 to make 1 more thali.
- Allow it to cool completely, pack in an air-tight tiffin box, with the green chutney in a separate air-tight box.
