Instant Oats Dosa | Indian Oats Recipes

Instant oats dosa

I make this oats 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 idli 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 ;) Lets see how to make Instant oats dosa with Indian oats !

1 cup - 200ml

  • Powdered oats – 1/4 cup  ( I used quaker quick oats)
  • Wheat flour – 1/4 cup
  • Rice flour – 1/8 cup
  • Sooji/rava – 3 tbsp
  • Pepper corns – 1 tsp
  • Jeera – 1.5 tsp
  • Ginger – 1 inch  (chop finely)
  • Curry leaves – few
  • Coriander leaves – few
  • Sour buttermilk – 1/4 cup OR sour curd - 2 tbsp
  • Salt & water – as needed.
  • Big onion – 1 no (finely chopped – optional) ( i don’t use)


  • Powder the oats and mix with all other flours together adding the required salt .. (Dry roast the oats before powdering them is optional)
  • Add the pepper corns, jeera, chopped ginger, curry leaves and coriander leaves.
  • Add the sour butter milk, salt and mix well. Add the required water to adjust the batter consistency.
  • Heat the dosa tawa and sprinkle little oil. 
  • Then pour the batter in a circular motion from the corner towards the center. Fill the gaps by sprinkling more batter.
  • Drizzle little oil around the dosa and keep the flame high for few secs.
  • The corners of dosa will lift automatically. Now flip the dosa and reduce the flame. Cook for sometime and remove.
  • Enjoy with any chutney or podi !!

  • I usually dry roast the oats for few mins and then powder it. This time I powdered without roasting which also tasted good. So roasting is optional but it gives an additional flavour.
  • Adding finely chopped onions is purely optional. I don’t add it.
  • U can also add crushed pepper corns instead of adding whole ones.
  • U can make this dosa by adding rice flour & sooji along with oats.
  • Ragi flour can also be added instead of sooji to get the crispness. This makes the dosa healthier but the color of the dosa will be black.
  • Batter should be watery. If you make the first dosa, you’ll get to know how much water has to be added to get crispy dosas. Add water and adjust the salt .
