Instant Oats dosa

A simple recipe using only oats and urud dal (no rice) also quick and handy for those busy busy days when you are on the run, put togather- a perfect way to start the day .

Oats        1/2 cup
(old fashioned rolled oats works the best)
Urad dal   1/4 cup
(A ratio of 2:1)
salt as per taste
oil if desired to spray over the dosa

  • In a wet grinder combine togather the oats and urad dal and grind into a powder without any grits 
  • store the mix in a dry,clean air tight container, like you would any other flour .This holds good for weeks .
  • when ready to make the dosa take about 1/4 cup of the powder ,add 1/4 tsp of salt and 3/4 cup of water little by little .The consistency should be that of a regular dosa batter
  • make sure there are no lumps as urad dal has the tendency to form lumps use a whisker to get a smooth  paste .
  •  heat a griddle until fumy and make dosa's ,spray with oil and flip if desired. serve with your choice of condiment.
The batter if left for a long period tends to get thicker .adjust by adding more water and salt .
