If you are on a health spree and trying to include oats in your diet, then this is one simple way. We do eat lot of whole grains and even oats regularly. These dosas are made similar to the Andhra pesarattu with an addition of oats.
This oats green gram dosa batter needs no fermentation like the regular dosa batter. But the green gram need a good soak for at least 5 to 6 hours. I usually soak them the previous night and blend the batter in the morning.
If you do not have the time to soak then you can use yellow dal or skinned green gram. Just soak it for about 45 mins in hot water. Drain and blend to a batter.
Ginger, green chilies, cumin are some of the ingredients that elevate the taste of these dosas.
Please ensure you grease your tawa or pan very well before making the dosas.
The consistency of the batter is the key in this recipe. If the batter turns runny then they will not come out crispy. If the batter is too thick then it will not spread well.
We generally use ghee to make these kind of dal dosas as they elevate the flavor. You can also use oil but not butter.
The recipe as is will yield you a crispy oats green gram dosas. The batter can be refrigerated for up to 2 days.
