instant dhokla in idli standidli dhokla recipe | instant dhokla in idli stand | idli khaman with step by step photo and video recipe. dhokla and idli recipes have a lot in common with its shape and texture. but the recipes come from different cuisine background and a more importantly different set of ingredients. however, these 2 recipes can be integrated and clubbed together to form one recipe and idli dhokla recipe or idli khaman is one such variation.

i have posted quite a few variations of dhokla recipe, which includes the instant one without fermentation, authentic one with channa dal and fermentation and the semolina based rava dhokla recipe. however, this recipe is very unique with the combination of 2 different recipes from 2 different regions. in other words, i have just used the same batter of dhokla and steamed it in an idli stand. unlike the traditional dhokla recipe, where it is steamed in a large container, there is no hassle of cutting and shaping it later. it is already shaped like a small disc and can be served immediately without any issues. i personally like this recipe and i make it when i am bored with the rice and urad dal idli. it is instant, quick and more importantly healthy.

furthermore, i would like to add some more tips, suggestions and variations to instant dhokla in idli stand. firstly, while preparing the batter, i used curd or yoghurt in this recipe to have the sour taste. you may achieve the same by adding lemon juice or lime juice (2 tsp). secondly, if you do not have an idli stand you may use small steel cups to prepare the cup idli dhokla recipe. lastly, in this recipe, i have added eno fruit salt to hasten the fermentation process. eno fruit salt does not react with turmeric, whereas baking soda reacts with turmeric to result in pink colour. also, it would spoil the taste and hence it is better to use eno fruit salt.

finally, i request you to check my other detailed idli recipes collection with this post of idli dhokla recipe. it includes my other related recipes like idli batter, vegetable idli, moong dal idli, kanchipuram idli, idli upma, instant stuffed idli, sabudana idli, bread idli, rava idli, semiya idli. further to these i would also like to highlight my other recipe categories like,
