Oats Dosa recipe a healthy and nutritious option for breakfast or snack. Also no need for fermenting over-night or soaking lentils or grams. This is easy, simple and quick to make during anytime of the day. This dish is also great to give in lunch boxes or kids as snack breakfast.
I have added oats, beaten rice flakes (poha), rice flour, semolina and a dash of ragi flour. Further have added whisked yogurt and water. Allow them to rest for 30 mins then your batter is ready to make dosas or idlis. We made dosas and ate with green chutney and podi powder.
We always make this dosa regularly as it’s less time consuming. Make the batter early morning so I am able to make dosas in 30 mins for breakfast. Dry grind oats, semolina and poha to make fine powder. Alternatively you could use oats or poha flour if available.

- Dry grind semolina, oats and poha until fine powder.

- The batter has to be thick just like idli batter so add water accordingly. Also add sugar now.
- Whisk nicely with a spatula or spoon until all blends well. Also add baking soda.
- Allow the batter to rest in a humid place or in your oven for 30-35 mins.
- Now add salt and mix well. Check if the batter is not too thick else add little water.
- Heat a non stick pan until it's warm but not very hot.
- Scoop batter towards the center then spreading a little with a spatula or flat spoon or small metal bowl making an oval or round shape. But keep the dosa thick.
- Drizzle some oil towards the periphery of the dosa. Once one side is cooked flip towards the other side.
- When the dosa is brown, cooked and crispy remove and repeat the same with the rest of batter.
- If your pan is too hot just take a half chopped onion and rotate the onion bottom all over the pan. This process helps in cooling the pan.
- If your batter is excess then place in the fridge for future use.
