Instant Oats- Sago Dosa

Many times when I don't have dosa batter and am lazy enough to make chapathi,I rack my brains to prepare some form of instant dosa.Long back I made these instant oats - sago dosa and now its being sent to Niloufer for her Cooking with seeds-Sago,an event started by Priya.This dosa was super soft and very delicious.

 I used :

Quick cooking Oats- 1 1/2 cups
Sooji / White Rava-1 cup
Sago -1/2 cup,soaked in warm water
Eno fruit salt -1 small sachet
Sour curd-1 cup
Salt to taste

  1. Roast oats in a pan and powder.Similarly roast suji and keep aside.
  2. In a bowl put in powdered oats ,rava,soaked sago,curd,salt.Add more water to make a batter.It should not be too watery.
  3. Just before making the dosa,dissolve Eno in a little water and add to the batter.It will bubble up and the batter will turn light.Let it sit for 5 minutes.
  4. Pour a ladleful of batter on a heated griddle and spread.
  5. Drizzle oil around the edges and cover and cook till the edges leave the side of the griddle
  6. Flip it over and cook for 2 minutes.
  7. If the batter turns thick in between,add more water.
  8. Serve hot with a chutney / sambar.

Yummy oats-sago dosa served with tomato gravy.

Note :
I used a fine variety of sago so I just soaked it for 15 minutes.Depending on the variety of sago used,soak till it is soft.

Bon Appetit...
