Oats Dosa




In my earlier posts I have mentioned quite a few times, that our family is not the kind that sits down for a formal breakfast of idly and dosa everyday. Our breakfast is oats porridge on most of the days. It is on days when I feel that the lunch may get delayed that I prepare a proper breakfast and that happens very rarely. But that doesn’t mean that we don’t have any of the breakfast items. It’s just that we don’t have it at breakfast time rather at dinner time. Now that makes it really difficult for me to click pictures of all these dosa and upma recipes which I prepare for dinner. So there are many recipes which I prepare on a day to day basis and these have not appeared on my blog yet.

The other day, when I decided to prepare these Oats Dosas, I prepared the batter in the afternoon itself and made dosas for my daughter, so that she could have them when she came back from school and I would get a chance to click pictures as well. The batter stays fresh for about 2 to 3 days when refrigerated.

So here is the recipe for a healthy dosa with the goodness of oats.



Makes – approx 16 dosas
What  you’ll need
  1. Oats – 1 cup
  2. Rice Flour – 3 cups
  3. Curd (slightly sour) – about 1 cup
  4. Salt to taste
  5. Cumin seeds – 1 tsp
  6. Green chillies – 1, finely chopped
  7. Ginger – a small piece, grated
  8. Coriander Leaves – 1 tbsp, finely chopped

For tempering
  1. Oil – 1 tsp
  2. Mustard seeds – ½ tsp
  3. Asafoetida – 1 pinch

Method
  1. Beat the curds well and soak the oats in it for about 30 minutes.
  2. Grind this into a paste.
  3. Transfer into a bowl, add the rice flour and mix well.
  4. Now add enough water and whisk well without forming lumps to a watery batter. (Just like you do for Rava Dosa)
  5. Add green chillies, grated ginger, chopped coriander and salt to taste.
  6. Rub the cumin seeds between your palms a few times and add that also.
  7. Now heat a small frying pan with oil, temper with mustard seeds and asafetida. Mix well.
  8. Heat a tawa well, reduce the flame, take a ladle full of batter and pour the batter in a circular motion from the outer to the inner of the tawa. Just like you do for raw dosa.
  9. Drizzle a little oil. Cook on medium flame till the edges start browning. Flip over and cook for another 2 minutes.
  10. Remove from tawa. Repeat with remaining batter.





Serve hot with a chutney of your choice. Tastes good with onion chutney.

Note:
  1. Use good quality rice flour else you may not get crisp dosas. If you don’t have rice flour, you can soak rice for about 2 to 3 hours and grind to a smooth paste and use it instead of rice flour.
  2. Make sure the batter is watery else you may not get thin dosas.
  3. Also make sure that the tava is really hot while pouring the batter, reduce flame while pouring and then cook on medium flame.

Yummy & healthy, I make oats dosa a little differently, your version sounds good too. I am with you on the breakfast items made for dinner, we do the same as everyone is in a hurry in the morning and it is mostly grab & go :-(

Hi! Your blog is my go to place for any Palakkad food for the past few years. Thanks for getting me back to Palakkad food.

One thing I saw when I was looking at the oats dosai recipe is that there seems to be a bowl of ulli chammandi next to the molagapodi. Would you have a recipe for that too? During my vacations at Palakkad, kochammai, who used to help in cooking at our house used to roast the vatta molagai on a low flame is all I can recall about making it. Thanks!!
