Instant Oats Dosa

Oats is a favorite for us at home, if I'm not in the mood to cook then oats it is! We usually have oats porridge or masala oats but now I have started trying many other dishes with oats. So one Saturday morning I decided to make this oats dosa and chutney. 
This is a healthy dosa and this recipe was shared my my friend Meenakshi in our college whatsapp group. That was so long ago and I immediately saved it and then forgot about it. When I stumbled upon it again, I knew I had to make it soon!
If you're a health conscious person then this dosa will work very well for you.

1. In a large bowl, take the oat flour, ragi flour, rava and wheat flour. 

2. Add the buttermilk or water and mix until you get a dosa batter consistency. 
3. Add the onion, salt and green chilli and mix well.

4. In a small tadka pan, heat the oil. Add the tempering ingredients and wait for the mustard seeds to splutter. 
5. Add this to the batter and mix well. Check for salt. Add more water if required as the oat flour tends to thick with time.

6. To prepare - Heat a dosa tawa and drizzle a tsp oil and spread well with half an onion till the pan/tawa is well coated.
7. Take 1/4 cup of the batter and pour on the hot tawa. Using the back of a ladle spread the batter circularly.

8. Drizzle half tsp oil around the dosa and wait for it to cook well. Then flip over the dosa and cook the other side. Once done, remove to plate.
9. Repeat until the batter is over.

Serve with any chutney or sambar. We had it with cabbage chutney.

Oats Dosa

1. The batter will become thick due to oats, add require water to adjust the consistency of the batter.
2. Dilute curd with water, to make the buttermilk. 
3. You might not be able to make beautiful looking dosa with this batter but that's okay for me! As long as it's a healthy meal my husband doesn't complain!!

Until next time,

  3. That's a very nice idea... thanks for sharing...

  4. My regular breakfast, looks delicious.. I love the color of that chutney too

  5. Thanks for the credit, Beulah. The credit really should go to my mother. Apparently, oats is very good for lactation. When I was still nursing my son, I had to become vegan as he was showing signs of lactose intolerance. The only way I used to eat oats was when it was in a porridge form with yogurt. Since this was no more an option, my mom came up with this idea and I immediately took a liking to it.

  6. This kind of instant dosa recipe... Great job ☺
