Recipe after a very very long time , as all of you know that i have taken up teaching and now this takes most of my day which also includes cooking and packing tiffin boxes with an additional box
which is offcourse for me.
By the time i am home in the evening i feel very exhausted to cook something elaborate, the way i used to earlier so i have to give my brain some extra exercise and think of dishes which are nutritious , filling and which takes less time and energy to prepare.
so here is one such dish which i am sure all moms will love to prepare.
If there are any moms out there who like this dosa please dont forget to comment here and tell you your opinion on this dosa...

1 cup ground ready to eat oatmeal.1/2 Cup rice flour or plain flour as per availability (i prefer rice for being more nutritious)
1 cup yoghurt which is a little sour (the rest of the ingredients balance the taste)
1/2 cup semolina or rava
1 tsp ground green chillies and jeera or cumin seeds (grind them together )
1/2 tsp sugar
lots of chopped fresh coriander
salt to taste
{you can add finely grated carrots,palak , or beetroot to it this batter}


Soak oatmeal , rice flour, semolina and yoghurt together.
keep it soaked for atleast an hour,
add the rest of the ingredients to the above mixture and make a semi thick batter.
heat a hot tava or griddle
pour the above batter , these dosas should be made thick or they break while they are turned to cook on the other side.
pour a spoon of ghee on the sides for extra yummy taste.
serve hot with chutney or pickle

I've been pretty missing in action myself, Mahek! You sound incredibly busy!

Hi Mahek,
I know you are busy with work and life in general but would you tell me why you call it oatmeal dosa. Is it because of the rava in it or am I not understanding your recipe correctly. because oatmeal is something that is different here in the US. Hope my question does not offend you. I am going to try this one out at any rate since it looks so very appetizing and my kids will love it too.
