When I made these delicious oats dosas for the first time, I could not believe that there were oats in them. They were so good. Crisp, lacy and healthy too. Plus they are quick and No fermentation is required in this recipe. though let me tell you that dosa made with fermented batter in which ground oats are added also taste good.

Few tips to make crisp oats dosa

  1. The batter should be thin and of flowing consistency like Rava dosa batter. If the batter is even slightly thick, then you get soft dosas and not crisp ones. So pour a small portion to check how the dosa turns out. Add 1 or 2 tbsp water to change the batter consistency to thin down the thick batter.
  2. If the batter becomes too thin, then you will get dosas which are very thin and limpy with no structure and shape. If the batter is very thin, then add 1 or 2 tbsp rice flour or more to thicken it slightly.
  3. The tava has to be hot. So when the batter is poured, small holes are formed giving a lacy effect.
  4. These instant dosas take more time to cook than regular dosas. So do not be in a hurry to remove them. Once they are browned and crisp from both sides, then you remove them.
  5. When making each dosa, stir the batter very well with the ladle and then take the batter in the ladle.
  6. If using a cast iron pan, make sure the pan or tawa is well seasoned. Otherwise the dosa will stick to the pan.
  7. Serve these instant dosas hot, as on cooling, the texture becomes soft.
  8. Addition of curd gives a slight sour taste to the dosas which tastes good. If you don’t have curd, then just add water and make the dosas.

These oats dosa taste very good with coconut chutney or sambar or even idli-dosa podi. I served them with coconut chutney.

How to make oats dosa

1. Grind ½ cup quick cooking oats in a mixer or grinder to a fine flour. Take the ground oats flour in a mixing bowl.

4. Add ½ cup of fresh curd. You can also use sour curd. If using sour curd, then add ¼ cup and add more water to get the right consistency. You can also add ¼ cup fresh curd for a less sour taste.

11. Then check the consistency and add ¼ cup water. Add water as required. You can add overall up to 1.5 cups water. Curd I used was homemade and hence not very thick. If using thick curd you may need to add some more water. The consistency should be thin and flowing like rava dosa batter. I added 1.25 cups of water.

Cooking oats dosa

12. on a medium flame heat a cast iron pan or a non stick pan. Drizzle ½ tsp of oil and spread it with the spoon. Before adding the oil, if using a cast iron pan, sprinkle some water to check the temperature of the pan. If the water droplets sizzle and evaporate, then the pan is ready to make dosas. Avoid doing this method on a non stick pan as adding water on a hot non stick pan, will affect the non stick coating.

13. Stir the batter in the pan/bowl and take a ladle full of batter and pour it from the circumference to the center. Do not spread the batter with the back of the ladle like the way we do for regular dosas. You can also test a small dosa and see if the batter consistency is right or not. If thick, add 1 or 2 tbsp more water and if thin, add 1 or 2 tbsp rice flour.

19. Once the base becomes crisp and golden, flip and cook the other side.

20. Once this side is cooked and crisp, flip again and you can cook the first side to make it more crisp. For a less crisp option, just cook the dosas when both the sides are done and then serve.

21. Fold on the tava and remove.

22. Take in a plate and preferably serve dosa hot. If you are not able to serve hot, then just cover the dosas with a lid and proceed to cook other oats dosas in a similar way. The crisp texture changes if you serve the dosa warm or at room temperature. However, they still taste good.
