Method
Take a  bowl, mix together oats, besan, onion, green chillies, coriander leaves, turmeric powder, jeera , salt, cooking soda and needed water to make a batter. I added a little more than 1/2 cup of water. The batter should not be too thin it should be  thick, so adjust water accordingly. Taste the batter to check for salt.

Now take a non stick tawa, when the tawa is well heated (check it by sprinkling water on the tawa), reduce the flame to medium and pour a ladle of batter and spread it in a circular motion. Drizzle a tsp of oil around the dosa.
When it is cooked, flip it over to the other side. Once the other side is cooked, remove from tawa
Serve hot with sambar or coconut chutney or with idli podi. I didnt wait for any chutney for sidedish just digged in eith idli podi and tomato sauce 🙂
