    Take a medium size sweet potato, wash it, peel and with the help of greater, use fine size grater. *In this recipe we don’t need to use boiled sweet potato, we are using here raw sweet potato. If you don’t have sweet potato you can use the same quantity of mixed veg like grated carrot and pumpkin instead of sweet potato.


    Take a bowl to add 1 cup rolled oats (100 gm), if you are measuring using spoons, then take 15 spoons of rolled oats. *If you don’t have rolled oats you can use instant oats too. However, those who are having gluten sensitivity issues, must avoid instant oats and use rolled oats instead because instant oats may be cross-contaminated. Remember we are not grinding the oats here, so making batter becomes even easy. Although you may grind the rolled oats to make this instant oats dosa that will not be so instant, as you will have to prepare the oats powder.


    Here I am using low fat curd, add curd (200 gm) in the rolled oats bowl. *Generally, a 200 gm low fat curd bowl is available in the market but if your curd is homemade and if you are measuring through spoons, it will nearly be 10 spoons. There will be a special taste to the instant oats dosa when you add curd. However, if you are suffering from severe PCOD or have boils or pimples, consult your dietitian before using curd in your diet.


    Add grated sweet potato, coriander leaves, cumin seeds, coriander powder, turmeric, and salt as per taste. Mix well add 1/2 cup water to it. Cover it and keep it aside for 10 min. As we know oats can absorb lots of water that’s why we need to keep it aside for some time.


    After 10 min again adds 1/2 cup water mix well. Our instant oats dosa batter is ready. For 1 cup oats take 1 cup water. Check for consistency if the batter is too thick add a little more water and if the batter is too thin, add a little more oats.


    We can make 8 instant oats dosa from this prepared batter.


    Take the flat griddle (tawa), add little oil, and grease it. Remove the extra oil using tissue paper. Make sure that the flat griddle is hot enough to pour the batter.


    Take 1 spoon full of the batter to pour it on the flat griddle. *Since this batter is made up of vegetables and oats, you cannot spread the batter as you do in traditional dosa. So you will have to pour and spread gradually if required, to give the dosa its round shape.


    Cover it and cook for 5 min on a slow flame.


    With the help of a spatula turn the oats dosa upside down, cook properly from both sides, you may add few drops of oil on the top of the dosa. And cook well. If you are using a non-stick griddle, you may not need any oil. The calories in the instant oats dosa would therefore reduce further.


    Our healthy instant oats dosa is ready. In the same way, make all the other instant oats dosas. Serve hot with the chutney of your choice. Alternatively, you can also try these instant oats dosas without any chutney or with Chinese red chili sauce or mayonnaise.
