when i made these delicious oats dosas for the first time, i could not believe that there were oats in them. they were so good. crisp, lacy and healthy too. plus they are quick and no fermentation is required in this recipe. though let me tell you that dosa made with fermented batter in which ground oats are added also taste good.

few tips to make crisp oats dosa:

  1. the batter should be thin and of flowing consistency like rava dosa batter. if the batter is even slightly thick, then you get soft dosas and not crisp ones. so pour a small portion to check how the dosa turns out. add 1 or 2 tbsp water to change the batter consistency to thin down the thick batter.
  2. if the batter becomes too thin, then you will get dosas which are very thin and limpy with no structure and shape. if the batter is very thin, then add 1 or 2 tbsp rice flour or more to thicken it slightly.
  3. the tava has to be hot. so when the batter is poured, small holes are formed giving a lacy effect.
  4. these instant dosas take more time to cook than regular dosas. so do not be in a hurry to remove them. once they are browned and crisp from both sides, then you remove them.
  5. when making each dosa, stir the batter very well with the ladle and then take the batter in the ladle.
  6. if using a cast iron pan, make sure the pan or tawa is well seasoned. otherwise the dosa will stick to the pan.
  7. serve these instant dosas hot, as on cooling, the texture becomes soft.
  8. addition of curd gives a slight sour taste to the dosas which tastes good. if you don’t have curd, then just add water and make the dosas.

these oats dosas taste very good with coconut chutney or sambar or even idli-dosa podi. i served them with coconut chutney.

how to make recipe?

making oats dosa batter:

  1. grind 1/2 cup quick cooking oats in a mixer or grinder to a fine flour. take this flour in a mixing bowl.
  2. then add 1/4 cup rice flour and 1/4 cup rava/sooji/cream of wheat/semolina
  3. add 1/2 cup fresh curd. you can also use sour curd. if using sour curd, then add 1/4 cup and add more water to get the right consistency. 

  4. you can also add 1/4 cup fresh curd for a less sour taste.

  5. add 1 cup water. stir and mix to a smooth consistency without any lumps.
  6. add 1/4 cup finely chopped onion, 1 tsp finely chopped ginger, 1 tsp finely chopped green chilies, 1 to 1.5 tbsp chopped coriander leaves and 7 to 8 curry leaves, finely chopped.
  7. stir very well again and then add 1/2 tsp cumin seeds, 1/4 tsp black pepper, crushed in a mortar-pestle and salt as required. you can also add 1 to 2 tbsp grated coconut.
  8. stir again and keep aside for 10 minutes.
  9. then check the consistency and add 1/4 cup water. add water as required. 

  10. you can add overall upto to 1.5 cups water. curd i used was homemade and hence not very thick. if using thick curd you may need to add some more water.

  11. the consistency should be thin and flowing like rava dosa batter.

making oats dosa:

  1. on a medium flame heat a cast iron pan or a non stick pan. drizzle ½ tsp of oil and spread it with the spoon. 

  2. before adding the oil, if using a cast iron pan, sprinkle some water to check the temperature of the pan. 

  3. if the water droplets sizzle and evaporate, then the pan is ready to make dosas.

  4. avoid doing this method on a non stick pan as adding water on a hot non stick pan, will affect the non stick coating.

  5. stir the batter in the pan/bowl and take a ladle full of batter and pour it from the circumference to the center. 

  6. do not spread the batter with the back of the ladle like the way we do for regular dosas. fill the small or large gaps with a bit more of the batter.

  7. sprinkle some oil around the sides and in the small holes or gaps and cook the dosa.
  8. once the base becomes crisp and golden, flip and cook the other side.
  9. once this side is cooked and crisp, flip again and you can cook the first side to make it more crisp. fold on the tava and remove.
  10. take in a plate and preferably serve oats dosa hot. if you are not able to serve hot, then just cover the dosas with a lid and proceed to cook other oats dosas in a similar way.

  11. the crisp texture changes if you serve the oats dosa warm or at room temperature. however, they still taste good.

  12. serve these instant oats dosas with coconut chutney, veg sambar or idli-dosa podi.

    My family loved the taste and crispness of these oats dosa n I was satisfied in knowing I’ve learnt to make another healthy snack,thanks to u Dassana.

  3. OMG!!

    I cant thank u enough for being here for me. I moved to india from uk with zero experience in cooking.

    Since i found ur website, i am ur biggest Fan. I am able to feed my family TASTY food.

    Im lost for words, but i want to say sooo much. Lol

    But main thing – u R a COOKING GODESS!

    Wish i could meet u in person to thank u.

    Pls forward ur email address so i can send u a gift voucher. 🤗

    1. Welcome Baljit. Thanks a lot for this awesome feedback and kind words. I am humbled and touched by your gesture and positive words. Trust me this is my best gift from you.

  4. Made this for breakfast today. Was very yummy. I follow your blog regularly. And have tried out many recipes. This one’s another keeper. Thank you.

  5. What types of oats are there , here you mentioned quick cooking oats . I have no idea about oats

  6. Hi Dassana,

    Your recipes are wonderful. Whatever it is I first try finding it on your website. They are always spot on and taste just like home. There is one question I want to ask. I see you write 1cup=250ml. When you measure the flour is it still 250g or is it 340g as I read elsewhere in recipes ? You are doing great work ! Thanks a lot for it 🙂

    1. Thanks Ginni. Depending upon the density of ingredient, each ingredient weigh separately when measured in a cup.
      e.g. 1 cup flour willl weighs 120 to 125 grams but 1 cup rice weighs 200 to 210 grams. Its not 250 grams. Either use the cup measurement or the weight measurement. also when weighing the weight of the ingredient is without the cup. it is only the ingredient that is weighed.

  7. Hi Mam .. is the rice flour added in the oats dosa recipe is the one which we grind at home using the rice or the one which is available in market as rice powder ??? Are these both same or different?? Kind of confused

    1. both can be used. home ground one as well as store brought one. the home ground one has to be finely ground. both are same. actually what differs is the type of rice used to make flour. so you can make raw rice flour at home as well as get from outside.

  8. I am very much fan of all your recipes, they are all simply The Best. I tried oats dosa and the taste was fabulous. Only one problem that there were no jalis as shown in pictures. Can u plz suggest me why it happened and what to do for more zalis.

    1. thanks vijay. for the jalis, the batter has to be thin and the tawa has to be hot. so when you pour the thin batter on the hot tawa, you get the jali like patterns. you can pour batter from a slightly more height than what is usually done for dosas. hope this helps.

  9. Awesome recipe …. good work Dasana mam…I whole heartily appreciate your work … I always refer your recipes …keep it up !!!

  10. Hi ,
    What changes should I make if I have rolled oats/steel cut oats at hand ? Is the recipe exactly the same ?

    Not to forget huge thanks for continuing to do what you are doing ! It’s always a relief if I’m looking for a recipe and you have it. Keep up the great work .

    1. thank you. with rolled oats/steel cut oats, you can soak them in water for an hour. then grind them to a thick paste with very little water. then add the other ingredients. or you can follow the recipe and then keep the batter to soak for at least 30 minutes, before you prepare the dosas. if there are tiny oats grits in the flour that you make, then seive the oats flour before you mix it with the rest of the ingredients.

  11. Hi,
    First of all thanks for akl your wonderful receipes. I just trust you blinfly to try out anything from your blog and you always prove me right.

    Can we mix ragi flour and oats together for more healthy option. will that effect the textire of it?

  12. Hi!
    I just tried the oats dosa. I am forever looking for breakfast recipes that are quick and healthy (a tough combination!) But these dosas turned out just perfect. I doubled the recipe since we are 6 of us at home. The kids also loved the hot crispy snack. Thank you so much and pls do keep posting such awesome recipes!

  13. Hai… really awesome.my familt doesnt like to have oats. They didnt not even belive tat d dosa was made of oats.very nice n crispy..

  14. I love ur recipes. I’ve book marked ur blog now! It has helped me enjoy cooking all the more.

    With regards to this recipe, are the oats dry roasted then grinded or just grinded as it is? I’ve got plain quaker oats with me.

    Thanks
    Radhika

  15. Hello Dassana! I have been trying your recipes for a very long time and all have been hits, but this turned out to be a disaster. I mixed everything in ratio but dosa was too soft, it was breaking. I tried to thin the batter, thick the batter, increase rice flour and samolina, but in vain. All were soft. I feel very disheartened. Can you suggest that what could have gone wrong?

    1. which oats you used. too much of rice flour and semolina will also make the dosa soft. the proportion of oats to rice flour and semolina has to be balanced. just need to add more water to thin the batter.

  16. I made oats dosa today for my daughters tiffin. Must say they were yummy. This is gonna be my routine breakfast recipe

  17. Hare Krishna! Dasanna, can you also add quinoa dosa recipe?

    Love your dosa recipes. Tried rava dosa and it came out really well.

  24. The dosas turned out really well just that I needed to add curd a little more. Thank you for this recipe.

  25. Hi dassana,

    One query : do you buy rice flour or make it at home. There are many recipes which require rice flour. Is there any particular brand…please suggest.

    Thankyou

  26. Hi Dear,
    I have tried most of ur recipes, n have enjoy them all.
    One question, can I make this batter the previous night to make the dosas next morning….??
    Thanks so much for all ur effort….
    Have a Nice Day.

    1. welcome milz. glad to know this. yes you can make the batter and keep it in fridge. because if you keep the batter out it might become sour.

  27. I have just started making dosa, idli etc. First attempt good – used crepe pan and turned dosa over easy. Last weekend, all attempts stuck to pan. Batter was thiner than before – log of bubble holes showing and they did not seem to cook inside. Should heat be low to medium? Any advice please?

    1. firstly the pan should be well seasoned. the batter should not be more thin as then there will be holes but the dosas won’t have structure. they will look soft and appear as if not cooked. but they are cooked. this is due to the fact that a lot of water is there. heat should be medium.

  28. Ya dassna quinoa is expensive
    I happen to procure from relatives in U.S. It’s high In protein reduces blood cholesterol it seems
    So do I follow amaranth recipes?
    In South India what is it called as any idea?
    I’m from Karnataka is it Navni akki/ rice ?

  29. God bless you Dassana for your creativity and dedication! You have shown me a way to incorporate heart healthy oats into my fussy hubby’s diet in the most delicious way!

  30. Thank you very much for the recipe Dassana. Made it with your recipe of peanut chutney. Everybody at home loved it!
    Never liked oats before but this recipe is right away added as a healthy tasty breakfast in our menu!

  31. Dassana all u r recipes are divine u truly blessed
    Have never enjoyed cooking so much before
    Actually I don’t like seeing other blogs n websites after cooking from urs
    Pls post some easy recipes of quinoa
    Thanks
    God bless u , n inturn we get blessed with u r awesome recipes

    1. Welcome Dr Kruthika. Thanks for sharing your kind words and for your prayers. In India Quinoa is very expensive. even a small pack cost more than 1000 Rs. thats why i don’t cook quinoa at home. moreover many indian grains like amaranth are as good as quinoa.

  32. Hi dassana
    Thanks for such healthy oats recipes..
    Pls post some paneer recipes without cashews using less oil..

  33. Hi dassana..rice which u have used ..is it
    Soaked one or not…thanks for such healthy recipes ..please post some paneer recipes for heart patient ..i mean
    Without cashew nd with less oil…

  34. Hi Dassana,

    I have one query related to wet grinder, hope you don’t mind asking me which wet grinder is best one to buy to make idli/dosa batter for 3 people or can let us know which brand/model you are using (I know its not required for this recipe) as I am having tough time grinding in mixer.

    Thanks in advance.
    Nishi.

    1. hi nishi, i use ultra table top grinder. really good. the urad dal batter comes out very fluffy like whipped cream. the results are much much better than grinding in a mixer-grinder. try buying one where you can remove the lid while grinding, so that you can look the batter. some models come with a fixed lid and they cannot be removed while grinding. go for a smaller size.

  35. I tried it today and turned out perfect- I wanted to make it soft for my teething toddler- and it passed my toddler test!!!! I have tried several of your other recipes- all of them have turned out perfect !!!!! Thanks a bunch
    Btw, can we add veggies- like spinach, peas, carrots, beets?

  36. Laurence Gantala

    Hello Dessana,

    Could you please clarify. Do I use “instant oats” (higher GI) or “whole grain rolled oats (lower GI) for this recipe? Or, does it not matter? My husband is diabetic so I am trying to do the right thing. All diabetic friendly recipes posted in the past and future are very much appreciated. Laurence

    1. hi laurence, you could use any oats. if using rolled oats, then just lightly roast them for 3 to 4 minutes in a pan on a low flame. when they cool down, then grind them to a fine powder. thanks for the feedback.

  37. This looks like a wonderful nutritious breakfast recipe n I can’t wait to try it..Is it ok if I powder porridge oats instead of instant?

  38. Hi, can you skip the cream of wheat and add extra rice flour or substitute a different flour? I am gluten intolerant?

    1. try adding gram flour or besan. will give a different taste and texture but will be good. and as you mention, you can also just add overall 1/2 cup rice flour.

      1. Thank you. All of your recipes look amazing. Thanks for taking the time to answer everyone’s questions also.

  39. Wow, a wonderful recipe… as you have mentioned, it doesn’t looks like it has oats in it and looks like Rava dosa actually. The pic of the crisp brown dosa is mouth watering 😛

    Thanks for the receipe
    Lalitha
