  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Bowls for mixing the batter
  • Dosa tava/Cast iron tava for making dosa
  • Turner for flipping and removing the dosa


  • ½ cup cooked oats
  • cup wheat flour / chapathi flour
  • cup besan/chickpea flour/gram flour
  • ¼ cup rice flour
  • 1 cup water
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • oil/ghee for making the dosa


  • 1 Onion chopped fine
  • 1 green chili chopped fine
  • ½ teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 2 tablespoon chopped fresh coriander
  • 1 sprig of curry leaf chopped fine
  • ½ teaspoon finely shredded ginger


  • This recipe uses cooked oats. If you don't have cooked oats handy, then cook ¼ cup raw oats with ½ cup water and use it in the dosa recipe.
  • To a large bowl, add the cooked oats, both the flour and salt, mix well with a ladle. It will be a gooey dough, to this add water little by little and make a smooth, pour-able batter.
  • The batter should be thin than the regular dosa batter but not watery. If you find the batter too thick, like idly batter then add another ¼ of water to it and mix. 
  • Now to this batter, add the seasonings, one by one, and mix well. I actually skipped the green chilies, since i was making it for my kiddo's breakfast, incase you are making it for adults, go ahead and add that chili.
  • Heat a dosa pan/cast-ron tava, add a teaspoon of oil when it is hot, wipe it clean with a tissue/a piece of cloth. Take a ladle of batter, pour it from outside to inside. you will not pour it like regular dosa, you should do it like rava dosa, from outside to inside. 
  • Dot the edges with gingely oil/ghee, let the dosa sizzle and cook and the edges brown, using a spatula, flip and cook the other side until crisp.
  • Remove from the tava and serve hot, with any chutney/sambar or idly podi. I served with Coconut chutney and idly podi.


  • If you prefer , you can finely grated carrots too to the batter and make dosa. 
  • If you prefer sattvic food, skip the onions. 
  • This oats dosa, tastes best when served hot. I would not recommend this for packing in boxes to be consumed for later.
