BM #82 Week 4 Day 2 - 

In an effort to reduce rice in our diet, I have started to replace part of the rice with oats in Idlis and Dosas with very little difference in taste.

After trying out out different proportions, I figured that this proportion works best for our family.

Ingredients - 

Urad Dal 1 cup
Rolled Oats 1 cup
Idli Rava 1 cup
Fenugreek Seeds 1 tsp
Salt as needed

Method Of Preparation -

Wash and soak Urad Dal and fenugreek seeds for about 3-4 hours. Wash and soak Rolled Oats separately for an hour.

Drain and grind all of them into a fine batter.

Soak Idli Rava for 30 minutes and mix into the batter. Add salt and set aside for fermentation.

After a few hours when the batter has risen, mix well and pour the batter into the idli moulds and steam for 15 minutes.

Remove from heat and serve with chutney of your choice.


Preparation Time 8 hours + Cooking Time 15 minutes
Makes 48 idlis approx
