Oats Dosa (Oats Pancacke) [RECIPE]

Lovely combination of oats and rice flour that makes yummy and healthy dosa. Many people don't enjoy eating oats much, so here is the recipe to enjoy the oats better than porridge
Ingredients:
1.5 cups          ............... oats
⅓ cup             ............... rice flour
½ tsp              ............... mustard seeds
½ tsp              ............... asafoetida
1 tbsp             ............... oil
½ tsp              ............... fruit salt (Eno, optional)
a few              ............... curry leaves
salt to taste

Method:
  • Soak the oats for 15 to 20 minutes in about 1.5 cup of water. Now grind the soaked oats along with the water to form a fine paste.
  • Mix together the oats paste, rice flour and salt. Set aside.
  • In a small vessel, heat oil. Add mustard seeds, hing and curry leaves. Once the seeds start to crackle, add this tempering to the flour mixture.
  • Add the Eno fruit salt. This makes the dosas fluffy and soft.
  • Mix well.
  • Prepare the doa on a non-stick pan. See the steamed dosa recipe for a step-by-step guide on making dosa on a pan. 
  • Ready to serve 

Serving Suggestions:
Serve hot with pickle or chutney-podi.
