Oats Buttermilk Dosa A Super Tasty Healthy Breakfast

Recently I was watching a tv show where aamir khan was being interviewed and considering his healthy glow he was asked how did he maintain this glow. His answer surprised me as he mentioned he gave first preference to a healthy diet, second to a 8 hr sleep and last to exercise.I think his reply would resonate well with all food bloggers.

Oats is considered as a perfect heart healthy grain but it is also important to enjoy oats the indian way, this oats dosa is the perfect balance of taste and nutrition. I used to prepare buttermilk dosa earlier but with the addition of oats, it pumped up the flavors, I have guests asking for the recipe when they have tasted the dosa and when I mentioned oats was added to it they are so surprised as they did not realize it.


Ingredients
  • 1 cup oats (I used quaker oats)
  • 1 1/4 cup rice flour
  • 1 cup curd/plain yogurt
  • pinch of hing (asafoetida)
  • 4 finely chopped green chilli
  • 2 tbsp chopped coriander/cilantro
  • 1 tsp jeera (cummin seeds)
  • 1/4 tsp freshly crushed black pepper
Procedure
Dry roast the oats in medium flame for few min until a nice aroma emanates,shift it to mixie and grind to fine powder.
Mix all the above ingredients along with the oats powder and make it lump free smooth paste. Add water to make it have a flowy consistency.

Heat tawa on medium flame,add a tsp oil and pour 1/2 cup batter in a circle starting from the edge of tawa towards the center,add little oil around if needed .



Once the edges start to become golden brown flip it and increase the flame,let it roast for 1 minute or until lite crisp.Flip and fold the dosa .

Serve hot with your choice of podi and chutney .I love to serve this yummy dosa with sesame tomato chutney.


Note:Its an instant dosa ,so try to use the batter as soon as u mix it other wise it will be soggy and you will not get crispy dosa.

You can also add chopped onions to dosa batter,It will add more flavor
