OATS-LENTIL DOSA / OATS-ADAI

I am not quite sure that when my parantha lover family turned into the biggest dosa fans. All this happened gradually when I started to explore different variations of this amazing crepe. The crisp dosas are now our most favourites which are the result of experiments with different ingredients

This OATS-LENTIL DOSA or OATS-ADAI is a combination of different dals(lentils) and oats. Oats add the nutritive value to this protein packed crepe. I have skipped the rice this time and replaced them with oats, the most fiberous yet a glutton free grain which not only controls the blood sugar but also helps to lose the weight.

This dosa can be prepared instant but I had fermented the batter for a few hours. Fermentation results in a smooth batter and makes the dosas crispier. A few aromatics like ginger, both types of chillies and herbs like coriander and curry leaves add the flavour to it. I serve this dosa with the finely chopped onions which were dusted with some Idli Podi
