“Oats” many of us, doesn’t like it as much as other breakfast, even I am one among them, before knowing the nutritious benefits in it. Oats are grains from a cereal plant and once harvested, go through a milling process. In order to retain the valuable nutrients in oats, processors set out to preserve as much of the oat grain as possible. The mill removes only the outer inedible shell, known as the hull - virtually guaranteeing you get all the goodness of wholegrain no matter what form you eat oats in. Once milled, oats are steamed, heated and cooled in a kiln, which brings out the flavour. The oats are then rolled, cut or ground to produce flakes, oatmeal or flour.


Most people have Oats as breakfast as it may help with weight control. People who eat breakfast regularly are more likely to weigh less than those who skip it. It may also be used in a variety of baked goods, such as oatcakes, oatmeal cookies, but if you don’t like to have the oats in the above forms or if you’re unsure how to include oats into your daily meals, here comes my instant Oats Dosa, you can try this recipe as it tastes like our normal dosa. It’s easy to make as well.

Few Nutritious Facts:

  • Rich in soluble fiber-Oats contain more soluble fibre than any other grain, resulting in slower digestion and an extended sensation of fullness.
  • Lower bad cholesterol- which possibly to reduce the risk of heart disease.
  • High in Proteins
  • Excellent source of carbohydrates which provide calories for energy needs
  • Oats are high in mineral content and also in several vitamins.
  • Contains hundreds of phytochemicals (plant chemicals)-which are thought to reduce a person's risk of getting cancer
 

Ingredients:

  • Oats- 1 Cup
  • Wheat Flour- ½ Cup
  • Rice Flour- ½ Cup
  • Onion- 1 Finely Chopped
  • Ginger- small piece finely chopped
  • Green Chilies- 3 Nos
  • Pepper Seeds- few
  • Cumin Seeds- 1 Tspn
  • Salt- To Taste
  • Curry Leaves- Few
  • Oil
  • Water

Method:


  • Mix all the ingredients and make a thin batter(like dosa batter) except onion.
  • Fry the onion separately with little oil and transfer the roasted onion to the batter
  • Pour the batter to the dosa pan, and cook flipping both the sides.
 

Tips:

"You can add asafetida to bring extra flavour and taste to the batter.

You could replace the pepper powder with the pepper seeds

Add adequate oil, so that it wont be very dry."
