15 Minutes Babu Ma's Oats Dosa

Came upon a Dosa Mela at Cooking For All Seasons by Srivalli and I decided to send in my grandmother Babu Ma's Oats Dosai that my father fondly remembers his mother preparing for him when he was a child.My father has been asking me to try it out for a few months and I decided to do just that and add it to my recipe collection. Since I have never seen my grandmother its my fathers recollection of the ingredients and I decided to play and experiment with it. If you are looking for crisp dosai, please add more rice flour or rava.

  10. Hi,

    This Dosa looks too good.But when i tried it out,the dosa was very sticky inspite of cooking for long time and the colour and consistency also differed.Mine came out very dark and sticky.Why is it so?How can i make dosa like this??

  11. Hi,

    Thank you for trying out this recipe. If it was very dark I think it could be because of too much heat on the tava. Try reducing the heat and as for the sticky texture please add a little bit more of rice flour which might make it crisper. Sometimes when I buy different brands from the store the oats texture varies and also using whole oats verses quick oats might be something to take into consideration.

  12. hii thanx for the quick receipe bt i wanted 2 know wether the rice in the oats dosa is cooked rice or uncooked rice please tell me as soon as possible

  13. Hi thanks for the nice comments. The rice that I have used is raw rice, but you can also use rice flour.

  14. Hi Srimathi,

    I stumbled upon this site quite by accident earlier today. I am very glad to have found it, however. This particular item is my favorite because my mother makes it all the time although her version is different from yours.

    But this is a great blog / resource. I will be here almost every day :)
