Oats Dosa

Oats Dosa is a lacy crispy and healthy crepe made by preparing a batter using powdered oats, rava, rice flour & spices and then cooked like dosa. Oats Dosa is one of the tastiest form of oats and relished with chutney & podi. Let us learn Oats Dosa Recipe with step by step pictures and video.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup oats I used rolled oats, you can regular oats too
  • 1/4 cup rice flour
  • 1/4 cup rava
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 big onion finely chopped
  • 1 small green chilli finely chopped
  • oil as required
  • salt to taste
  • around 3 cups water or as required

Instructions

  • To a dry mixer jar : add 1 cup rolled oats.

  • Grind it few times to get a slightly coarse flour. Oat flour ready, Set aside.

  • To a mixing bowl add oats flour, 1/4 cup rice flour, 1/4 cup rava.

  • Add 1/2 tsp cumin seeds, 1/4 cup onion, 1 tbsp curry leaves, 1 no green chilli and 1/2 tsp ginger all finely chopped along with reuqired salt.

  • Give a quick whisk

  • Add water little by little to form runny batter. It takes around 3 cups of water(approximately) but make sure to add little by little – do not add fully.

  • Form a runny batter.

  • Mix well. If you feel the batter is thick, add little more water. Now Oats Dosa batter is ready.

  • Heat dosa tawa – check by sprinkling water, it should sizzle really fast. Wipe off with a cloth. If dosa tawa is not really hot you will not be able to get holes while pouring which will not yield lacy crispy dosas. So check the tawa by sprinkling water and also to adjust heat. I recommend using cast iron dosa tawa for best results if not you can use regular iron tawa too.

  • Always mix from bottom before pouring dosa as flour gets settled at the bottom. So make sure to mix well and adjust consistency by adding water if the batter gets thick. The batter should be runny just like we make for rava dosa.

  • Now start pouring the batter starting from the edges and finishing in the center. Fill in the bigger holes by pouring the batter.

  • Drizzle oil at the edges and center. Let it cook in medium flame.

  • Cook until golden and the edges start to lift by itself as you can see.

  • You can either fold as such and serve or flip and cook too. As the dosas are lacy and thin flipping and cooking to other side is not a must. Crispy lacy oats dosa ready to serve!

Notes

  • Just drizzle only a thin layer of the batter dont spread it , else you will not get crispy dosas.

  • If the batter becomes very runny add 1-2 tbsp rice flour and adjust it.
  • You can powder oats and store it in advance so that its very helpful during our morning hurry burries.
  • Always mix the batter before pouring so that flour that has settled down will mix thoroughly.
