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.
