Oats Dosa

I tried out Oats Dosa yesterday and it came out really well.  It's pretty simple to do, and doesn't take a lot of time at all.  Plus, it's healthy.  
Ingredients Required:
Oats - 1 cup
Semolina - 1/4 cup
Rice flour - 1/4 cup
Green Chillies - 1 (finely chopped)
Cumin Seeds - 1 tsp
Salt - to taste

Preparation time: 10-15 minutes

1. Dry roast oats for few minutes (until you see a slight color change in oats)
2. Add Semolina and Rice flour to the roasted oats, and grind them to powder.  If you wish, you can add water and make them as batter.  
3.  Make the paste / powder that you blended into a batter.  
4. Add salt, cumin and green chillies.  You can add onions if you like.  
5. Mix the contents well and make it a thin batter (like the rava dosa batter)
6.  Now, making dosa with this thin batter is a bit difficult and different.  If you know how to make rava dosa, use the same method.  
7. In a hot dosa tawa, pour one laddle of batter from outside to inside, and fill up open spaces.  
8. Pour a tsp of oil on the corners of dosa.  Allow it to cook.  Flip the other side for few minutes.
And the oats dosa is ready. 

Note:  Instead of dry roasting oats, you can simply mix all the above said ingredients and set them aside for about 10-15 minutes and then make your dosa.  Both the results end in a finger licking healthy dosa!

When I tried this, I was so eager to taste them, and completely forgot to take pictures.  So bear with a recipe without photo!  And these dosas can be enjoyed over breakfast or dinner.  Compliment it with chutney / sambar or simply yogurt.
