Instant dhokla using idli batter, Idli dhokla, Khatta dhokla

Dhokla using idli batter/ Idli dhokla  is a super easy and quick to make recipe that yields very soft and fluffy dhokla. Dhokla can be prepared in many varieties but this particular instant dhokla is very simple to prepare as it does not require any soaking or grinding and only leftover idli batter is used for its making.Yes combination of few basic everyday ingredients makes an excellent breakfast and snacks. I am very happy about this particular dhokla outcome because NO ENO was used in its preparation and replaced baking soda in its place which again resulted in perfect dhoklas.  Since the dhokla is made using idli batter I made them in idli shape but you can make it any shape as you like. So lets get to the making!
