Oats Idli - Instant Idli with Oats and semolina

 Today I am posting a healthy south Indian  breakfast  using 
Oats. Eating oats porridge daily will be boring , so do try various recipes with this grain.

    Idli being announced as the world's top healthiest food , which is a common breakfast in the south Indian Homes. 

    Idli with oats , semolina and tempering mixed with curd, makes instant idli batter. 


  One cup rolled oats
  Half cup semolina / Rava
  Half cup sour curd
  one cup water
  1/2 tbs Lemon Juice
  Salt to Taste
  Half tsp sodium bi carbonate
  one tbs cooking oil 
  Half tsp Mustard seeds 
  Half tsp Split Channa Dhal
  A sprig of curry leaf
  Half tsp chopped ginger
  Two green chilli finely chopped 
  Chopped coriander leaves
  Half carrot finely chopped

   Method :
     Dry roast semolina and oats separately.
     Grind oats to a coarse powder.
  In a bowl , add the coarse oats , semolina , salt ,  sodium bicarbonate  and mix well.
    Heat oil in a pan , add the mustard seeds  and let it splutter. 
    Add the channa dhal , curry leaves ,chopped ginger ,  chopped green chilli and saute for a minute.
      Add the tempering to the mixture along with chopped carrot and coriander leaves.
   Add the water and curd , mix well without any lumps. Let the batter rest for ten minute.
    In the mean time , grease the idli plates if using stainless steel plates with ghee or cooking oil .
  After ten minutes , mix the batter well. If you find the batter is very thick add enough water to adjust the consistency same as idli batter.

  Pour a laddle full of batter and steam on medium flame for 20 minutes.  

   Switch off flame and wait for ten minutes till the idli cools, then demould the oats idlis.

 Oats idli is ready to be served. Serve with coconut chutney .
