Oats Idli Recipe / Oats Dosa

Print Friendly and PDF
oats idli

Oats idli recipe, oats dosa; is another easy way to include oats (oatmeal) in our daily diet. Oats idli is a healthy breakfast for the whole family; and very low calorie and filling. The best thing is you can use this same batter to make oats dosa.

I replaced the raw rice with powdered oats and left it to ferment overnight and the result was pillow soft idlies.

Putting all the ingredients in a blender and leaving it to ferment overnight makes everything so easy, just like ordinary blender idlies.

I added some finely chopped green chilies, ginger and curry leaves to the idli batter and it tasted so good and so very soft.

I also used the same batter to make dosa.

Bachelors can make this so easily.

And they were crispy and perfectly yum, but healthy!

Makes about: 10-12 idlies.

Lightly roast oats in a pan, make sure you roast in low flame as we dont want the colour to get changed to brown. Then powder them finely.

In to the blender, add the roasted and powdered oats, cooked rice, soaked urad dal, fenugreek seeds (uluva), salt and enough water. Grind it to the consistency of idli batter. Keep it overnight or 7-8 hours to ferment. The picture below is that of the fermented batter, you can see how airy it has become.

I added some finely chopped ginger, green chili, and curry leaves to the batter...for that extra Zing!

Pour into greased idli moulds and steam until done.

If you are making dosa, add a little more water and spread a ladleful of batter to a greased and hot dosa tawa. Drizzle ghee or oil if needed.
