Instant Oats Dosa

Dosa or pancakes are most popular breakfast, snack and dinner option which is very popular in South India.

Instant oats dosa is made with oats flour, rice flour, semolina, spices and herbs. Very easy, crispy, delicious and healthy. This dosa has thin and crisp texture which is very much similar to the South Indian style popular rava dosa. Crispiness of this dosa comes from rice flour added.

Notes

  1. Along with rice flour and semolina, you can even add 1/2 cup of wheat flour to make this dosa more tasty and healthy.
  2. You can increase the quantity of rice flour to make this dosa more crispy.
  3. Don't make batter too thin or too thick. It should be of flowing consistency. If batter becomes too thin add more rice flour and if it becomes thick add more water.
  4. You will get thick dosa if the batter is thick. If so, add more water.
  5. You can add finely chopped onions, grated carrots and fresh grated coconut to the batter. This is optional.
  6. If dosas are sticking to the bottom of the tawa, grease tawa with few drops of oil and then make dosa.
  7. Thin batter gives you crisp dosas. If you want soft dosas, make batter little thick.
  8. These dosas take little more time to cook when compared to regular dosa.
  9. To check if tawa is ready to pour batter, jusr drizzle some droplets of water over tawa. If it evaporate quickly, then tawa is hot enough to make dosas.
  10. If you have oats flour, use it directly to make dosa instead of frying and making powder of oats.
  11. If you are not making dosa immediately, semolina will absorb the water and makes the batter thick. If so, add more water to adjust the consistency before making dosa.
