Idli and Dosas need no introduction. One of the most famous South Indian breakfast or snack dishes, the dosa is quite versatile too.
Although the traditional one is made with a batter of rice and urad, there are innumerable variants using varied grains and pulses, some requiring grinding and fermentation and some being instant mix-and-cook versions.
Here is a Healthy Oats Dosa, made without any rice. It is made with fibre-rich oats and is good for diabetics . It is gluten-free and a good source of protein .
The dosa requires no soaking – you just need to blend and ferment, so it is relatively easier. The Healthy Oats Dosa tastes as good as regular dosas, especially when served with the trademark chutney and sambhar team!
You can also try other dosa recipes like Quinoa Dosa or Poha Dosa .
