Oats Dosa Recipe

Oats dosa is more like rava dosa. The best thing is, it can be prepared instantly. No grinding required. When there is no dosa batter in stock, I will go for oats Dosa. Moreover it is a best alternative for the usual oats porridge. We prefer to include oats in our diet atleast couple of times a week. So just to get rid of the boring menus, I would like to explore different recipes with oats as main ingredient. This is one such try. I added plain flour to oats. However plain flour can be replaced with wheat flour as well. It goes well with some spicy chutney.

Add around  2.5 – 3.5 cups of water and to that add chopped coriander leaves, chopped green chillies and onion. Mix everything well and make sure the consistency is thinner than the dosa batter consistency.

Oats Dosa Recipe Step2

Just before making dosa, add finely chopped onion and mix well.

Oats Dosa Recipe Step3

Heat a dosa pan and add a laddle full of batter and spread it gently to slightly thinner dosa. Drizzle some oil around. Allow it to cook on one side. Flip it to the other side and cook till it turns into light brown colour.

Oats Dosa Recipe Step4


Adding onion is optional. The dosa tastes good even without onions.

Instead of adding the onions as such, it can be fried slightly and then add to the batter.

Adjust the water accordingly till you get a nice dosa. The more thinner it is, the more crispier the dosa will be.

It takes little longer to cook than the usual dosa. So wait till it turns into nice golden brown colour at the sides.

Instead of plain flour/ maida, the same quantity of wheat flour can be added.
