Oats rava masala dosa

This Oats Rava Masala Dosa is a healthy and tasty Break fast recipe prepared with Oats and left over Idli/Dosa batter

Rava Masala dosa is one of the hottest selling dosa variety in all restaurants. I wanted to try some healthy recipe with this dosa variety, so I have used Oats and wheat rava. Also a speciality about this recipe is that no one can find that this dosa is made out of oats.

You can also prepare this dosa with out masala also and still it tastes so good. You can serve chutney or sambar as side dish. I have already posted Masala Dosa recipe which is one of the popular tiffen item.

For Dosa:
  • 2 Cups left over Idli/Dosa batter
  • 1 Cup Oats 
  • 2 tbsp Wheat rava/Broken wheat (fine variety) or Normal Rava/suji
  • 2 tsp Cumin seeds
  • 1/2 tsp Pepper
  • 1 Green chilli (Finely chopped)
  • 2 tbsp Coriander leaves (Finely chopped)
  • A spring Curry leaves (Finely chopped)

Method for Masala:

Method to Make Oats rava Masala Dosa:

1) Grind the oats to fine powder. Now add Oats powder, Wheat rava (fine), Salt to left over Idli/Dosa batter and mix well.

2) Add enough water to make it as thin batter in running consistency and similar to Rava dosa batter.

3) Mix Coriander leaves, Curry leaves, Cumin seeds, Pepper, Green chillies to the batter and let it rest for 15 minutes.

4)  Heat a dosa tawa and drizzle some oil and spread well. Pour a ladle of batter forming a outer ring then fill in the gap. Unlike regular dosa it can not be spread like an even circle.

5) Now drizzle oil around dosa also inside the circle where you find gap to cook in medium flame. This dosa demands more oil and more time to get cooked and to become crispy.
