Khata Dhokla Recipe/Khatta Dhokla with Idli Batter

gujrati khata dhokla recipe
Right from school days i have been a fan of Gujarati cuisine..Since i had many gujju friends we used to get to taste their dishes almost everyday in tiffins...One of my  favourite was the khatta friends mom used to always send khata dhoklas it for me..Later when i joined college that's when mom actually allowed me to cook I began trying so many dishes home those days i used to buy readymade idli batter and make these khata dhoklas...Mom never liked me buying readymade ones so then she started making the batter at home.I used to love when the batter was made since i could experiment variety of dishes with just one single batter and ofcourse these khata dhoklas were on the menu  regularly then.
