Oats Dosai

Oats Dosai

Oats has gained so much of presence due to its highest health benefits. We use them often in many ways except the most popular way of having it as porridge. Myself and my hubby just do not like it as porridge since it becomes mushy. It is good in that way as well but except for the sugar that you might have been adding into it. Plain porridges will be very hard to have. Or you can try porridges with salt and buttermilk. Cook oats and once it is cooled, add salt and buttermilk. Try this one if you generally eat it with Sugar.

Now, we go for Oats dosai recipe:

Oats - 5 ounces
Rava/rice flour - 2 ounces
whole wheat flour - 1 ounce
Flax meal - 1 ounce
Ginger garlic paste (garlic is optional) - 1 tsp
Green chillies-few cut thinly or ground paste-1/4 tsp
Curry leaves-few tared into pieces
raw cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp

Buttermilk-1 cup

Mix all the dry ingredients with buttermilk slowly and add water to get batter consistency. The batter should not be too thin or too thick. If mixing is a problem, just whip them with blender/mixie. Easy ?!?

Adding Tadka gives it a unique taste. Take 2 tsp oil and when it is hot add mustard seeds-1 tsp, curry leaves and Asofoedita.

Let it rest for 30 mins or so. You can even make it right away like I do sometimes.

Heat Tava and make round crepes, dont try to make it very thin till you are used to it.

add little oil and turn it other side, cook for a minute. It is done.


Notes:

1. You can even use a laddle to measure the ingredients, no need to search for ounce measurement if you dont have any. You need to increase the quantity based on the number of serving.
2. I replace cumin seeds with Ajwain seeds during winter. It gives special flavour.


I hope you try this and let me know your comments.
