Protein added Oatmeal Rava dosa

Though my kids are picky eaters, they seem to like some good stuff too :) Oatmeal is one of them. I used to make Oatmeal Rava Dosa once or twice a week to avoid dinner time battle. I wanted to increase the protein in it. I modified my earlier recipe and added 1 cup of Besan to it. I love besan because just one cup of besan has 21g of protein (almost 3 times the protein in 1cup of milk). Dosas came out well and tasted good. Best part -the kids love it.




Here's the recipe for it :
Toasted Instant Oatmeal - 1 cup (dry grind it)
Rava (Cream of wheat) - 1 cup
Rice flour - 1 cup
Besan /Chickpea flour - 1 cup
Buttermilk - 1 cup
Water - as per the consistency
Salt to taste
Cumin seeds- 1/2 spoon (approx)
grated carrot - 1 cup (optional)
green chillies - finely chopped and as per taste (optional)
cilantro - finely chopped
fenugreek leaves or baby spinach - finely chopped (optional)
Mix all the ingredients and let it soak for atleast an hour. Add more water if necessary. The consistency should be as thin as rava dosa batter. Heat the dosa girdle and make dosas.

I am sending this for Ramki's Recipes for the rest of us

I am also sending this for JFI Chickpea hosted by MS and Srivalli's MLLA, an event started by Susan and JFI Chickpea hosted by MS.

Looks delicious! that is a great idea to making dosa with oats.gr8 recipe

Ramki said...

Thanks Vidya,

BTW, what sort of a dosa does this make - crunchy or chewy ?

Vibaas said...

Thanks y'all.

Ramki, it is not as crispy as rava dosa. if you don't add any veggies, it is slightly crisp. if you add veggies, it is soft.
