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.

How many of us have had khaman or dhoklas from the local marwadi snack shop or a high end snack bar…almost all of us…it is light, yummy and fills the stomach is’nt it?? Well this delightful snack has its origins in Gujarat and it is called “Khaman”…it is also called as “Dhoklas” in many other places..in the shops they are made of besan or gram flour…here i have made them in the traditional gujarati home style..i.e made of channa dal
Khaman / channa dal dhoklas
Soak channa dal and rice separately for atleast 2 hrs or till they are soaked nicely.
Grind the dal and rice separately, then mix them in a bowl with some salt.
Cover the dal rice mix with a lid and let it reat in a warm place for about 5-6 hours so that it can ferment.
Once the mix is fermented, add curd, salt, ginger-green chilli paste and turmeric powder and mix well.
Grease a shallow utensil (any baking dish should do) and pour the mix into it.
Just before putting the baking dish to steam, add the soda and mix well and immediately start steaming.
Steam for min of 10 - 15 mins / till its cooked well.
Once steamed, garnish with temper, chopped coriander leaves and some freshly grated coconut.
Cut into bite sized pieces.
Serve with tangy chutneys (tamarind / mint / coriander)...njoy!
