Oats has become a common ingredient in every kitchen these days. With so many different types & flavours of oats available in the market the possibilities of creating new varieties of Indian recipes is unbelievable. I have decided to create my very own Indian recipes using oats in unique ways. Oats besan dosa is a tasty dosa recipe which can be served as a snack or as a breakfast item. If you are bored of having oats porridge everyday, for a change you can make this dosa !!!!
1 cup oats ( Quakers brand )
1/2 Besan flour
1/4 tsp Turmeric powder
1/2 tsp Red chilli powder
1/4 tsp Coriander powder
a pinch of asafoetida
1/2 tsp Cooking soda/ baking powder
salt to taste
2 tsp oil( 1tsp in dough and 1 while cooking)
Take a bowl, mix together oats, besan, , 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 nor too 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 and serve hot with any chutney of your choice
