About This Recipe
This delicious oats dosa has become a frequent part of our menu. They are quick to prepare and make for a nutritious breakfast or snack. Here are a few more tasty Oats Recipes to try.
Oats dosa is a crispy crepe made with oats flour. This recipe is an instant, quick variation of the traditional Dosa Recipe which is time-intensive – that involves soaking rice and lentils, grinding them into a batter, and fermenting.
When I had begun to test and develop oats dosa recipe many years back, I could not believe that these delicious crepes had oats in them. I was surprised with their texture and taste – crisp, lacy, flavorful and healthy.
Bonus they were quick to make as no fermentation is needed. I must admit though, that the oats dosa recipe made with fermented rice, lentil batter and ground oats flour tastes great as well.
How to Make Oats Dosa
Make Oats Flour
1. In a blender or mixer-grinder take ½ cup of quick cooking oats or rolled oats.
2. Grind the oats to a fine flour.
Combine The Flours
3. Transfer the ground oats flour into a mixing bowl.
2. Add ¼ cup of fine rava (sooji or cream of wheat or semolina). Do not use coarse rava granules. You can add semolina flour too.
3. Next add ¼ cup of rice flour. As a healthy option, you can opt for brown rice flour. Make sure that your rice flour is finely ground and not coarse.
Make the Batter
4. Add ½ cup of fresh curd or ¼ cup fresh curd for a less sour taste. If you prefer a sour taste in your oats dosa, add sour curd.
If you decide to include sour curd, add ¼ cup of it. Add water as needed to get the right consistency. For rolled oats flour, you will need to add slightly more water.
5. Add 1 cup of water.
6. Begin to mix the batter.
7. Stir and mix thoroughly until you get a smooth consistency without any lumps.
Add Onions, Herbs and Seasonings
8. Add all of the listed ingredients mentioned below
- ¼ cup of finely chopped onions
- 1 teaspoon of finely chopped ginger
- 1 teaspoon of finely chopped green chilies
- 1 to 1.5 tablespoons of chopped coriander leaves
- 7 to 8 finely chopped curry leaves (about 1 tablespoon chopped curry leaves)
9. Combine and mix very well. Add ½ teaspoon of cumin seeds, ¼ teaspoon of crushed black pepper, and salt as required. You can add 1 to 2 tablespoons of grated coconut if you like.
10. Stir again and set aside the batter for 10 minutes. The water will float on top and the flours will be at the bottom after resting the batter.
11. Check the consistency and add ¼ cup of water. I added a total of 1.25 cups water but you can add about 1.5 cups water depending on the texture of the flours.
I used Homemade Curd and the batter was not very thick. If you are using very thick yogurt like greek yogurt, you may need to add more water. The consistency should be thin and runny like Rava Dosa batter.
Cooking Oats Dosa
12. Heat a cast iron skillet/tawa or a nonstick frying pan on a medium to medium-high heat. If using a cast-iron skillet, sprinkle some water carefully to check the temperature before adding the oil. If the water droplets sizzle and evaporate, add the dosa batter to the pan.
Do not add water to a nonstick pan as adding water will affect the nonstick coating. Drizzle ½ to 1 teaspoon of oil on the skillet (cast-iron or non-stick). Spread the oil with a spoon.
13. Stir the batter in the bowl and fill a ladle with batter and pour it from the circumference to the center. Do not spread the batter with the back of the ladle as you usually would for the traditional fermented dosa recipes.
You can make a small dosa to test whether the consistency of the batter is correct. If the batter is too thick, add 1 or 2 tablespoons of water and if the batter is too thin, add 1 or 2 tablespoons of rice flour.
14. Obviously there will be some large or small gaps in the dosa.
15. Fill the gaps with a bit more of the batter.
16. Now cook the dosa on a medium to medium-high heat.
17. Sprinkle some oil around the sides and in the small gaps.
18. Cook for 1.5 to 2 minutes. You will see that the edges loosen up and separate from the pan.
19. When the base becomes crisp and golden, flip and cook the other side.
20. When this second side is cooked and crisp, flip it again and cook the first side to make it crisper. For a less crisp dosa, cook on both sides once and serve when done.
21. Fold on the tava and remove.
22. Add the oats dosa to a plate and serve hot. If you are not able to serve it hot, cover the dosas with a lid.
The crisp texture of the dosas will change if they are served warm or at room temperature. However, they still taste delicious.
Like your usual regular dosa, oats dosa tastes delicious with Coconut Chutney, Sambar, or Idli Podi.
You can enjoy with Tomato Chutney, Onion Chutney, Peanut Chutney or Ginger Chutney. I like to serve my oats dosa with coconut chutney or tomato chutney.
It is best to eat these instant oats dosa hot. When they cool the texture becomes soft.
Make Ahead and Leftovers
For busy mornings, when you plan to make quick breakfast, prep the batter (without adding onions and coriander leaves) a day earlier and refrigerate overnight. The batter will thicken a bit after refrigeration. Add some water to get the right consistency before you make your oats dosa.
Any leftover batter keeps well for a day in the refrigerator. While making dosa with the leftover batter, add water if it has become thick.
Expert Tips for Oats Dosa
The consistency of the batter should be thin, runny and flowing like Rava Dosa batter. If the batter is slightly thick, you get soft dosas and not crisp ones. I suggest to test a small portion of the batter to check how the dosa turns out before using up the entire batch of batter.
Correcting thick or very thin batter
If the batter becomes too thin, the dosas will come out thin and limp with no structure or shape. If the batter is very thin, add 1 or 2 tablespoons of rice flour or more and stir to thicken it slightly. If the batter is thick, add 1 or 2 tablespoons water to make the consistency thin.
Temperature of the skillet
The skillet/tawa has to be hot. After the batter is poured, small holes are formed that create a lacy effect.
These instant oats dosa take more time to cook as compared with your regular dosa. Do not be in a hurry to cook them. Remove them from the skillet when you see that they are golden and crispy on both sides.
Stirring batter every time
Before making each dosa stir and mix the batter very well with the ladle. The flours settle at the bottom of the bowl. Mix the batter every time prior to making every dosa. This ensures the flours are evenly mixed before you make your dosa.
Using a cast-iron skillet
If you are using a cast-iron skillet, make sure the skillet or tawa is well seasoned. If not the dosa will stick to the skillet.
Including Curd (yogurt)
The addition of curd gives the dosas a delicious slight sour taste. If you don’t have curd, add water instead.
Make a small or a large batch of this oats dosa recipe as it suits you, by easily scaling the ingredients.
Your oats dosa might not be crispy because you did not cook it for long enough. To ensure that you get a crispy oats dosa cook it on a medium heat on the skillet and keep cooking until both sides are crispy and golden brown.
Your oats dosa may be white because it was not cooked for long enough on both sides. Make sure you cook the dosa on both sides on a medium heat until it becomes golden brown.
Fill a ladle with batter and pour it from the circumference to the center. You should not spread the batter with the back of the ladle as you would for the traditional dosa recipe.
Your oats dosa might be breaking because the dosa batter is too thin. If the batter is too thin, add 1 or 2 tablespoons rice flour. To test your dosa batter add a small portion of the batter to the pan and change the consistency if needed.

- Once the base becomes crisp and golden, flip and cook the other side.
- 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.

- The crisp texture changes if you serve the oats dosa warm or at room temperature. However, they still taste good.
- Serve these instant oats dosa with oats dosa tastes delicious with Coconut Chutney, Sambar, or Idli Podi.
- You can serve with Tomato Chutney, Onion Chutney, Peanut Chutney or Ginger Chutney. It is best to eat these instant oats dosa hot. When they cool the texture becomes soft.
Make Ahead and Leftovers

- The batter will thicken slightly after refrigeration. Add some water to get the right consistency before you make the oats dosa.
- The leftover batter keeps well for a day in the refrigerator. While making dosa with the leftover batter, add water if it has become thick.

Love your recipes !! Thank you 🙏
Most welcome and thank you.
Hello dassana ji, I’m big fan of yours n i love your recipes. I’ve prepared many of them and all of them were delicious.. I want to ask you that while making oats dosa or oats idli if I skip lemon juice or curd, could I make the same recipe?
thank you supriya for this positive feedback on the recipes you have tried. for oats dosa you can skip adding curd or lemon juice. these are added so that there is some sourness in the dosa. for oats idli, some acidity is required for the baking soda or eno to react. the reaction between the baking soda/eno and lemon juice or vinegar helps in making the idli fluffy and soft. so in oats idli, one of the either i.e curd or lemon juice should be added. hope this helps.
You are just awesome…
I like your style of cooking and follow you blindly…
thank a lot ????
Thank You so Much the Recipe Came Out Really Delicious. Your recipes are really Good
thank you devika.
Can u please suggest me which type of oats I can use to make dosa. As in market many types of saffola oats are available I’m confused what shall I use
use quick cooking oats or rolled oats. saffola also has plain oats which i think are quick cooking oats. these are just plain oats and not flavored with anything. don’t use the masala oats etc.
Love this recipe so much that it has become a regular breakfast item atleast once a week.They are so yummy that I like to have it plain without chutney.A very perfect recipe.Thanks for sharing.
thank you winnie. chutney can be skipped. in fact even with dosa podi (powder), oats dosa tastes good. welcome and happy cooking.

Welcome Ramya. Glad to know this. Thanks for sharing your positive feedback on recipes.
can I use irish oats instead of instant oats here?
you can use irish oats.
What types of oats are there , here you mentioned quick cooking oats . I have no idea about oats
there are various types of oats – instant oats, quick cooking oats, oatmeal, rolled oats and steel cut oats. instant oats and quick cooking oats take less time to cook than the other types. you can read more here – https://eatingrules.com/types-of-oatmeal/
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 🙂
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.
Do you have your cooking book
no bhakti. do not have time to write and publish a cooking book.
Is it possible to use Instant Oats?
you can use instant oats.
Can we use roasted suji?
you can use. the texture will be slightly different.
Can you make the batter a day in advance?
you can make the batter, but refrigerate the batter.
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
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.
Wat to add instead if i dont hv rice flour. Can i add chickpea flour????
you can add chickpea flour.
Hi Dassana mam
U made me realise oats too could be tasty
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.
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.
Awesome recipe …. good work Dasana mam…I whole heartily appreciate your work … I always refer your recipes …keep it up !!!
pleased to know this amruta thankyou for your positive words. god bless you.
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 .
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.
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?
rubina you could add ragi flour with the batter but add only about 2 tbsp and not more. also add water accordingly. thankyou for your kind words.
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!
very pleased to know this devyani glad your kid loved oats dosa. thankyou so much and you are welcome.
Looks super interesting and healthy.. eill definitely try it out. Thanks 🙂
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..
pleased to know this catherine 🙂 enjoy and thankyou.
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. the oats are not dry roasted. just ground directly as it is. you can use plain quaker oats.
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?
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.
I made oats dosa today for my daughters tiffin. Must say they were yummy. This is gonna be my routine breakfast recipe

Hello. It could be done with water instead dahi/curd/yogurt?

Thnx Amit, your recipes are really nice. We can also follow the same steps with besan/ gram-flour to make a healthy n crispy “besan cheela”.
welcome paridhi. thanks for sharing this tip. i will give it a try.
Love your recipes!!!
The dosas turned out really well just that I needed to add curd a little more. Thank you for this recipe.
welcome preeta. glad to know this.
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.
welcome rutba. i buy it from outside. i buy 24 natural mantra organic rice flour.
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.
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.
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?
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.
Hey Dassana, tried the recipe for breakfast this morning and was an instant hit.
thanks ramya for sharing positive feedback.
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 ?
Dr Kruthika i don’t know what it is called in kannada language. its very healthy. on web you will get lot of recipes with amaranth grains as well as flour. you can have a look at this post – https://www.vegrecipesofindia.com/amaranth-yogurt-parfait-recipe/ and https://www.vegrecipesofindia.com/rajgira-paratha-recipe/
Thank u dassana for sharing the oats dosa recipie

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!

Pls post some easy recipes of quinoa
God bless u , n inturn we get blessed with u r awesome recipes
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.
Thanks for such healthy oats recipes..
Pls post some paneer recipes without cashews using less oil..
welcome rashmi. check this paneer recipes collection. https://www.vegrecipesofindia.com/recipes/paneer-recipes/
there are many recipes in this link in which cashews are not used.
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…
welcome rashmi. i have used rice flour in the recipe.
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.
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.
Thanks alot Dassana … will go for ultra only.. 🙂
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?
welcome anandita. yes you can add grated carrots beets, mashed peas and finally chopped spinach. thanks for sharing your experience.
What’s can be used instead of rice flour
sakshi, you can whole wheat flour/atta or all purpose flour/maida or besan.
healthy dosa.. Crispy too.. Perfect for busy weekdays or lazy weekends
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
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.
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?
thanks aliya. you can powder porridge oats.
Love this unique twist of oats dosa.. yummy and delicious
Hi, can you skip the cream of wheat and add extra rice flour or substitute a different flour? I am gluten intolerant?
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.
Thank you. All of your recipes look amazing. Thanks for taking the time to answer everyone’s questions also.
welcome bala. thanks for your positive feedback.
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
thank you lalitha 🙂
