Oats Ulli Dosa is an apt and excellent variation from the usual and ever popular rice dosas. What I like best with Oats Ulli Dosa is that unlike other dosa dishes that require soaking, grinding and fermentation process, this recipe requires very little time for preparation of batter. Fermentation requires 7-8 hours at a stretch and undoubtedly we are losing our quality time. Oats Ulli Dosa is an ‘instant’ dish that does not require fermentation. These rolled out crepes are tasty and very wholesome too accompanied with any spicy gravy. These dosas make for a great and healthy breakfast or a light and comfortable dinner. While preparing the batter, make it smooth and runny. Make sure it does not become too watery. The batter is poured on a hot tawa and spread out perfectly so that it cooks up into a thin, lacey and crisp crepe.

What makes Oats Ulli Dosa unique and special is the addition of cumin seeds and shallots that grants it a distinct flavor. Oats Ulli Dosa is quite tasty and addictive too but it takes little more time to cook compared to the regular rice dosas. Cook in slow to medium heat and make sure that both sides are cooked well. My kid loves Oats Ulli Dosa combination and I am happy he is relishing something great. I can prepare it fast on school days and my kids consume it with honey. This is a complete and filling meal that provides required energy for my kids and family. Oats are loaded with Vitamin E, zinc and B complex. Oats help in healthy functioning of brain too. You can explore a well detailed Oats Jeera Dosa recipe here. And do send me feedback.
