Khaman Idli - Lunch box series recipe #5

Well this is purely fusion that was created when thinking to make something different, attractive and tasty. Though the base recipe came to mind from white dhokala that my mom makes, this is much quicker version.
As this is fusion of instant khaman dhokala and idli, I named it Khaman Idli..and trust me your little ones will like it for sure in their lunch box.
