Oats Idli

Recently, we have become a great fan of Oats. Especially my husband.....one of his favourite is Oats Khichdi. But my daughter doesn't like that. Her favourite is Oats Dosa. It is bit difficult to satisfy both of them...but I do that peacefully. :)

I have tried many varieties of dishes with Oats and yesterday, I bumped into sharmispassions - a collection of wonderful recipes. There I could find many recipes with oats. I was so happy...will try one by one...

My husband is a big fan of Idli.... Give it to him as a breakfast or dinner, he is happy to enjoy it... So I usually have a stock of Idli batter in my fridge.... By keeping that in mind, yesterday, I tried Oats Idli from sharmis website with some changes to suit our taste and the result was awesome.. very soft and healthy idli.... Both my daughters and husband loved it... Me too.... 

Here goes the recipe....

Recipe Source: Oats Idly


1 cup Oats  
1/2 cup Semolina/Rava
1/2 cup Curd
1 Carrot (grated or finely chopped)
1 Onion (medium, finely chopped)
10 Curry leaves (cut into pieces)
1 tsp Mustard seeds
2 tbsp. Coriander leaves
1 Green chilli (finely chopped)
1/2 tsp Asafoetida / Hing
1/2 tsp Baking soda
Salt to taste
Water as required
2 tbsp. Olive oil

  • Dry roast oats and grind it into a powder. Put this in a bowl.
  • Dry roast semolina/rava and put it in the same bowl. Keep this aside.

  • Add curd, coriander leaves, baking soda, salt and mix well.
  • Add required water till it becomes a normal idli batter consistency.
  • Pour it on the idli moulds and stem it for 10 - 15 minutes, till the idlies are nicely cooked.
  • Take out from the moulds, when done.
  • Serve it hot with any chutney of your choice.
