oats Groats- Whole oats -Oat groats are minimally processed--only the outer hull is removed. They are very nutritious, but are chewy and need to be soaked and cooked a long time. They look very much like whole wheat.
I saw these in my sister's place and thought they were wheat and later she told me they were oats. She had got these from Whole foods(an organic food store)here in US.
Here I have used a combination of whole oats(oat groats) and red quinoa and made them like regular dosas. The taste was really good and kids did not find any difference, They happily had with their fav chutney and chutney podi.
Whole oats(oat groats) - 1 cup
Red quinoa - 1 cup
urad dhal - 1/3 cup
Rice - a handful( just to make the dosas crispy)
fenugreek seeds - 1 tbsp
Salt as needed
For making dosas I usually soak all the ingredients together and grind them together and mix.
Have followed the same way here
Wash and soak oats, red quinoa, rice and urad dhal. Soak in enough water along with fenugreek seeds for 4 - 5 hours.
Grind to a smooth paste and mix with salt. Allow it to ferment for 8 - 10 hours( usually overnight).
Heat a tawa/griddle, pour a ladle full of batter and spread as dosas. Sprinkle few drops of oil and cook both sides. Remove and serve with any of your favourite dip.
You can make the same dosas with rolled oats or any other variety of oats. Just that you don't have to soak. Rinse once if needed and add the same while grinding and follow the remaining procedure.( Instead of one cup can add one and half of cups of oats).
