Oats dosa recipe. Crispy, delicious and healthy oats dosa for a quick breakfast, brunch or dinner. I am sharing 2 methods of making these. The first one is a quick and easy method to make an instant oats dosa. The other one is using urad dal dosa batter or leftover dosa batter, definitely a healthier way to have oatmeal dosas. Both the recipes yield thin, crispy and delicious dosas.
Method 1 – Instant oats dosa
To make the oatmeal dosas instantly, along with oats we can use either rice flour, wheat flour or semolina. For those who like to refrain from consuming refined foods, semolina may not be a good choice. Only rice flour yields crispiest dosa, using half rice and half wheat flour also yield good dosas. To use only wheat flour, quick cook oats work best.

Method 2- oats dosa recipe using urad dal batter or dosa batter
1 cup thick fermented urad dal dosa batter
2 to 3 tbsps. Semolina/ upma rava (optional)
¼ cup of powdered oats
Water as needed
Salt to taste
Mix all the 3 ingredients with little water and salt and bring it to a dosa batter consistency, do not make the batter runny.
Set aside for 10 mins, if the batter becomes too thick, add some more water and bring it to the right consistency.
Heat dosa tawa till smoky hot, sprinkle little water, allow the water to evaporate, then pour the batter with a laddle and spread it to a thin round layer with the base of the laddle. You can use even a stainless steel cup instead of a ladle.
Spread little oil around the edges of dosa and allow it to fry on a medium flame till the dosa is ready to flip to the other side.
Flip the dosa to the other side and toast for a min or 2, this step is optional.
Serve hot with any chutney of your choice.
