I make this dosa once in a week.This dosa will be crispy in the edges and soft in the middle. The crispness of this dosa lies in the consistency of batter like rava dosa.Adding more water makes it look dry.So add the water correctly.Wheat flour & oats gives the softness.. Do try this healthy dosa for breakfast or dinner. It tastes great with coconut chutney. I tried idly podi using horse gram as an accompaniment for this dosa which i’ll post soon ..Make this dosa & serve immediately for better taste. Oats tastes the best when it is eaten hot ;)
|We all are well aware that oats is a very healthy and nutritious food and as breakfast is the most vital meal of the day, the perfect way to start it would be with a bowl of oats. There is no doubt that oatmeal has been ranked as one of the best foods which can fight against cholesterol and a single bowl of oatmeal contains several vital nutrients such as complex carbohydrates, B vitamins, fiber, and minerals such as phosphorous, iron, selenium, and calcium. |
Oats was originally only cultivated in Southern Europe almost 5000 years ago and it has also been described by Hippocrates as a very refreshing porridge which also helps in hydration. Most of us know only about the high fiber content of Oats but there are vast benefits related to this which are as follows:
1) Lowers Cholesterol – There is a soluble fiber which is present in oats and this is called as the Beta-glucans which has proved to lower the blood cholesterol which ultimately reduces the risk of cardiovascular diseases. Studies has shown us that a bowl of oats a day reduces your cardiovascular risk by at least 10 percent.
2) Reduces high blood sugar – Oats falls under the category of low glycemic index food and since it is high in fiber content it helps to normalize blood sugar spikes and diabetes patients can certainly benefit from a breakfast of oatmeal everyday.
3) Revving up the Immune system – Oats also contains selenium and vitamin E which certainly enhances the body’s immune system response to bacterial infections and thus this makes it a perfect food for the flu season and the zinc present in oats not only aids in metabolism but also helps in healing wounds and in cell regeneration.
4) Weight Loss – The soluble fiber in oats can delay the emptying of the stomach which ultimately aids in weight loss. Since oats is low in fat content as well, it will certainly not add up to your weight.
5) Protein source – There is a higher concentration of well-balanced protein in oats compared to the other cereals and also the quality of protein found in oats is of a much superior quality to that of the proteins found in wheat. Proteins in oats helps to build, repair, maintain all body tissues and also provides necessary body energy.
