Oats - Ragi Dosa

Quick recipes are always a boon to the homemaker and as a chronically lazy person who likes to spend the minimum amount of time in the kitchen, i personally endorse them wholeheartedly :)

Here's a great and healthy breakfast dish from my friend, Nisha Dilip, that I tried out this morning.

The combination of oats and ragi seldom calls for a second helping, but this dosa with the goodness of both grains, plus rice, certainly turned out to be a surprise package.

Thanks, Nisha, for the recipe.

Here goes the ingredients-

Oats - 1 cup
Rice flour - 1/2 cup
Ragi flour - 1/2 cup
curd - 1 cup
finely chopped ginger - 1 tsp
finely chopped green chilly - 2 tsp
finely chopped corriander leaves - 2 tbsp (or to your taste)
Salt to taste
Water as required
Oil to cook.

Mix in all the ingredients except the oil. Use water as required so as to make a batter of thick consistency.
keep it aside for about 10 mts and make yummy Oats - Ragi Dosas for your family :) 

This dosa is best eaten piping hot and goes well with any type of chutney/sambar.

Tomato -Oats Dosa

This is a super quick, healthy dosa that can be manipulated as per your requirement. I actually stumbled upon it by sheer chance. Having run out of my  regular dosa batter, I had to improvise quickly and thus ended up with this tangy delicacy. 

Ingredients  used:

Oats - about 3/4th of a cup
Rice flakes - 1/4th of a cup
Tomato - 1 ripe
Green chilly - 2
Regular dosa batter - 1/4th of a cup
Chopped mint and corriander leaves
Salt to taste
Oil to cook

Grind together the oats, rice flakes, tomato and green chillies to a smooth consistency.
Mix in the required salt, the regular dosa batter, and the chopped  mint and corriander leaves.
Make slightly thich dosas. It would be a good idea to use oil sparingly and to cover and cook these dosas. (I did).

These go well with coconut chutney/sambar. 

Happy cooking and do get back with your comments :-)
