Oats Dosa – How to make Oats Dosa using leftover Idli-Dosa batter

Oats Dosa, a simple breakfast to get you on track with the Oats trend without completely immersing yourself in Oats.

This Dosai is made of leftover Idli-Dosai batter and grounded quick cooking Oats.

Although it does not hold as much nutritional value as Steel cut or rolled Oats, Quick or Instant Oats are easy to make and saves loads of time.

Our household has the habit of grinding Idli rice and Dosa rice together and use them for making both of the popular South Indian Breakfast.

I was bored of the regular breakfasts I make, like, the Dry-fruits oatmeal and other things. So I thought I would make some Dosai.

It was the last day batter and my mother didn’t know I would want to make some. If she did then she would have saved me some!

I never tried making Oats Dosa, probably because Dosa demands oil and I wasn’t very keen in using so.

Yeah, I am one of those almost in-existent dry Dosa eaters(if I made it). Not very proud.

I have made Oats and Wheat Flour Chapati before, so I thought of following the same foot steps and grounded the quick cooking Oats available at home.

I didn’t add lots of oil, if you can zoom it then you’d know.

Neither do I make crispy thin dosai. Dosas that lies between Crepes and Pancakes mostly worked for our family’s appetite.

I’d someday try making those thin crispy and buttery looking Dosas! But not today

Haha.. as you can see, there isn’t much to say about how I came up with this uncomplicated and straightforward breakfast. I am not verbal when it comes to describing food. I had to use Thesaurus!

It better come to me eventually! You better be, words. You better be.

Turns out this is kid-friendly too because of the colourful garnish. Who knew?

Grind half a cup of Quick Cooking or Instant Oats until powdery. Let’s call this, Oat Flour, because that’s what it is.


1/2 Cup of Quick Cooking or Instant Oats

1 Cup of Idli-Dosa Batter, thick

1/2 Cup of Water

1/2 teaspoon of Salt

1/8 teaspoon of Baking Soda

For Garnish: Mixed fruit jam, one small banana and few seedless green grapes(Optional)


Step 1: If Idli-Dosa batter was refrigerated then take one cup of it out and let it come to room temperature.

Step 2: In a medium-sized bowl or vessel, combine the ground ‘Oat flour’, idli-dosa batter, water, salt and baking soda. Beat or whisk well. It should be in pouring consistency. Water quantity depends on how thin or thick you want the batter to be.

Step 3: Heat a tawa/Dosa pan on medium heat. Once hot, pour the batter and spread it as you would any Dosa batter.

Step 4: When one side is cooked, flip the dosa.

Step 5: Transfer to a plate after done.

Step 6: Spread some jam on Dosa, cut banana and grapes crosswise and arrange it on top.

Step 7: Done and Done!
