This delicious Oats and Finger Millet Dosa is both easy to make and so healthy to eat!
Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, but every now and then, I wish for a recipe which is healthy, made easily and is not time consuming. This dosa was made by adding things already available in my pantry and voila we had a healthy instant Ragi Oats dosa recipe.
My family (which is quite small and includes hubby and daughter), love having a heavy breakfast. Most days we have bread and omelette or some kind of dosa. Dosa in any form is a big hit in our house. Masala dosa, plain dosa, adai, vegetable dosas. As you can see, we are big freaks when it comes to dosa.
Recently we went to my cousin’s place for the weekend; by the time we came back home it was too late in the night and I could not really decide on what I would make for breakfast.
Morning came and I just opened my pantry and fridge and decided to make something instant but homemade but healthy…well that’s quite a challenge when you don’t have time on hand and you have a cranky 4 year old who wants to eat cheese right at that moment !
Anyway, long story short, this dosa was literally made using items in my pantry on a Monday morning and in a hurry. So it is easy and it is simple to make – A healthy Instant Ragi and Oats Dosa.
Why Healthy Instant Ragi Oats Dosa ?
Having been in Karnataka for more than 12 years, Ragi is a staple in our food. Ragi or Ragi flour is very good for our health – it helps control diabetes, helps with weight loss. It is also loaded with calcium, but more than anything , it makes up for a very versatile ingredient.
Oats on the other hand just like ragi flour is gluten free and loaded with vitamins, minerals and fibre. Bringing these two together in one recipe is an ideal way to get loads of goodness in our diet
This Healthy Instant Ragi and Oats Dosa can be paired with any spicy chutney or podi of your choice.

Come summer, mangoes are available in all sizes and shapes…& before we start eating the ripe mangoes, we get the raw ones…well this is the time of raw mango pickles …yummm isnt it… this mixed rice variety is a one of my favourites.
Wash and grate the mango and keep aside.
Heat oil in a kadai, add the mustard seeds, channa dal and saute till the mustard seeds splutter and channa dal becomes brown...
Add the onions, green chillies and ginger and saute till the onions turn pink in colour.
Add the grated mango, turmeric powder and saute till the mango is cooked nicely.
Once the mango is cooked, add the roasted peanuts, salt and rice & mix well...

Last saturday around 6.00 PM D (my sis) and M (my hubby) anf me (of course) got hungry and had a craving to eat a snack..something out of the usual and crunchy… so i went to the kitchen and got out whatever was there in my fridge and as my luck would have it on a weekend…not much..but i did have a little dosai maave (Dosa batter)..and by little i had only a couple of table spoons worth..so what to do..well we did manage to have a snack and this is how i made it….hope people like it.
Weekend snack with a twist.
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and let it stay for 10-15 minutes..
If the batter is too thick, some more curd could be added to get the correct consistency.
Heat oil in a kadai, meke take small portions of the batter (either by hand or tsp) and deep fry it.
Once the vadai is fried till golden brown remove them on a tissue paper....
Serve the tangy rava vadai with hot with chilli/ tomato sauce
