Healthy meal - Oats dosa/Oats & whole wheat crepes

 I love to incorporate some healthy dishes in to our diet.Oats is a good candidate for that. Oatmeal has a high content of complex carbohydrates and water-soluble fiber that encourages slow digestion and stabilizes blood-glucose levels. Oatmeal porridge also contains more vitamin B and calories.


Oats                                    -  1 cup
Whole wheat flour               -  1/4 cup
semolina/ sooji rava            -  1/4 cup
yogurt                                  -  1 cup 
carrot (grated)                     -  1/4 cup
coriander leaves                 -  1/4 bunch
salt                                      -   to taste
pepper crushed                   -   as required
Oil                                        - 1-2 tsp per dosa

  1. Mix 1 cup of oats, wheat flour, semolina, yogurt, carrots, chopped coriander, crushed pepper, salt .
  2. Add water required to make a batter with pouring consistency.
  3. Keep the batter aside for 15-20 minutes.
  4. In a hot griddle pour a teaspoon oil and a spoon full of batter. Spread it to sides and fill up any big holes if there are any.
  5. Cook in medium high heat.
  6. Pour little more oil over the dosa and flip over carefully.
  7. Wait until the dosa is cooked in the other side as well.
  8. Once cooked on both sides serve it hot along with Coconut Chutney.
