Instant Oats Idli Recipe - South Indian Oats Recipes

Print Friendly and PDF

Oats idli with wheat rava and vegetables is one of the healthy breakfast recipes for people who look for weight loss. I have been making this idli for years and somehow I have not posted this in my blog. Oats pongal and Oats idli are the recipes I make very often in my kitchen whenever myself and Sendhil opt for diet recipes.

Usually I nake this Instant idli along with tomato mint chutney for his lunch. It stays soft for hours and it is his favourite lunch box recipe too. I must thank Sharmilee for this idea of using wheat rava. You can also make it using white upma rava/ sooji like rava idli. I have used Quaker brand Indian Oats here. Ok, Lets see how to make healthy Oats Idli recipe with step by step pictures.
