Thin, crisp, lacy dosa made using quick-cooking oats, a healthy Indian breakfast recipe is oats dosa. Certainly, it can your dinner too on the day (or night ;)) when you are hunting for a quick or light dinner recipe. However, I like to include oats for breakfast because of the multiple oats benefits. Oatmeal is my favorite way of doing that. Overnight oats being the other one. Oats dosa can be served with the chutney of your choice. Make sure to serve it from the dosa pan to the plate as on cooling it will lose its crisp texture.
Types of oats: There are different types of oats available in the market, depending upon the way they have been processed. Mainly categorized as rolled and steel-cut. Rolled ones can be further categorized as old-fashioned oats, quick-cooking oats, instant oats. Quick-cooking oats are the pick for this recipe. The cooking time of the types of oats varies. The steel-cut oats take the longest to cook and have a chewy texture.
Other ingredients: Rava and rice flour are also added for the crisp texture of oats dosa.
Yogurt: Although it can be skipped and replaced with some water I like to add it for the slightly sour flavor it adds to the oats dosa recipe.
Flavoring: Crunch of chopped onions and freshness of chopped coriander leaves, make this simple recipe so delish. You can also add in finely chopped ginger and green chilies. Further, you can spice it up with some cumin seeds as well as black pepper powder or coarsely ground black pepper.
Dosa Tawa: Well not an ingredient but critical for dosa recipes is the dosa pan. You can go for the non-stick pan or cast iron dosa tawa. But it is important to have a good dosa pan.
