Oats Idli

Hi Friends,
       Back with another healthy recipe for the breakfast or for your kids snacks time in school as well....
I bought a pack of instant oats for my son, thought of making oats porridge for him. I made it for him but waste he refused to eat, may be not that appealing. Personally I too don't like oats, now what to do with the pack ?? Found few recipes on Internet and tried OATS IDLI.....

First time I used the same ratio which was given on the net but then I realised it makes idli little sticky than crispy. I tried my own ratio of ingredients and sharing with you all. Hope you will like it :)

1 cup oats (I used saffola instant oats)
1 cup medium size rava/suji/ semolina
3/4 cup curd
1 finely chopped carrot
1 finely chopped capsicum
2-3 finely chopped green chillies
Few fresh leaves of coriander (finely chopped)
2 tsp of mustard seeds
Salt according to taste
1/2 tsp hing
1/4 tsp baking soda/eno fruit salt
Oil for temper and to grease the idli trays


  • Dry roast oats in a non-stick pan for 3-4 mins or till aroma arises.
  • Remove from pan, grind them once cool down. Keep aside.
  • In the same pan dry roast semolina till it becomes light brown in colour. Remove and keep aside.
  • In the same pan, add 1 tsp of oil. Add mustard seeds, let it splutter add carrot, capsicum, green chillies and chopped coriander along with 1 tsp of salt.
  • Cook till carrot becomes soft.
  • Now transfer rava/semolina, oats, carrot mixture, curd, salt, baking soda/eno fruit salt and hing in a mixing bowl.
  • Add water in the mixture to get proper consistency.(neither too thick nor too watery)
  • Grease the idli plates and put a batter with the help of ladle.
  • Steam it for 10-15 mins or until done.
  • Remove from the plates and serve hot along with your favourite chutney.

Sending this recipe to Pari's event hosting by me ....
