OATS BARLEY IDLI RECIPE–BARLEY RECIPES

 

Oats barley idli recipe

I got an idea of making barley idli from here. I followed the same recipe.Idli came out super soft and tasty. I was not able to find i added barely.Thanks Aruna Smile.Nowadays i make this idli very often.I wanted to make some changes to the recipe by adding oats and tried yesterday.My hubby was surprised & asked me whether i’ve added oats and barley because there was no change in taste or smell from the usual idli recipe.Only the color of idli was different.He was very happy to have this idli for breakfast and dinner.I made dosas too. It was crispy and yummy.I have updated the pictures with step by step pictures.Hope it will be useful.

    • U can make crispy dosas also by adding water to the batter. Dilute the batter,mix well and make dosas.
    Enjoy soft,healthy idlies with sambar or chutney !!
 


Note

  1. Please rinse the barley and other ingredients for a minimum of 3 times to remove all the stones and debris before soaking. Please soak barley for 5 hours at least.
  2. if  u want , u can soak and grind urad dal & methi separately and then grind rice , barley , oats  together .Finally mix both the batters and keep it for fermentation. Being lazy , i soaked and ground everything at once.Winking smile
  3. Also while grinding add water in small quantities whenever needed.It takes 25-35 mins for grinding. The consistency should be of normal idly batter consistency.
  4. If u want to reduce the quantity of rice , u can make it to half cup and follow the same recipe.
  5. U can increase the quantity of oats and try the same .
  6. Please don’t reduce the ratio of urad dal as it gives the soft idly.If u want to use less urad dal , try adding rice flakes or cooked rice for softness.
  7. Fermentation is very important here. If it doesn’t ferment properly , i cant guarantee u about the taste and softness. Winking smile
