Oates Dosa

I never used Oates in my cooking before.....after reading so many blogs and events of Oates even i am very exited to make different verity from this healthy Oates.....this is my beginning..and the dosa was really good....and simple to prepare...

Ingredients:(to make 7-8 dosa)
Rava(semolina) 1 cup
Rolled Oates 1 cup
Green chilly 1 finely chopped(optional)
Coriander and cumin powder(both together) 1tsp
Salt to taste
water to make batter and for other purpose


Soak the rava(semolina) in a 1/2 cup water for 5-10 mins.Dry roast the Oates in a pan till nice aroma comes....keep aside once it is cool grind to make fine powder..

Then blend the semolina and make smooth paste. Now add this batter to a bowl along with ground oates ,mix well(add water only if required),the batter should be like normal dosa batter.

Heat the tava and take a ladle full of batter and make dosa by gently spreading it in a round shape(prepare as like normal dosa),cover with lid.

Once the bottom is cooked(it will turn to light brown colour)then sprinkle 1/2 tsp of oil and turn on
the other side after a min take the dosa and put in to a serving plate....

Serve hot with hot green chutney or any kind of chutney.....
