Instant Oats Rava Dosa

Rava Dosa or Onion Rava is quite popular as a breakfast in all of South India. A large crispy, golden and lacy dosa is folded into twos or fours, served along with assorted chutneys and sambar is blissful to even think about! I took the standard rava dosa and modified it to add oats, making it Instant Oats Rava Dosa – one way to include oats in our diet.

It is easy to master the art of making a perfect rava dosa if you get the measurements or batter consistency right and the technique to pour the batter correctly! It is all about practice when it comes to making the Oats Rava Dosa. The best part of making a rava dosa is that it is instant – no soaking, no fermenting required.

I found that using oats flour instead of all-purpose flour in the oats rava dosa batter, it was easy to handle and the dosa was soft at the center while being super crispy at the edges. Another trick to get perfect golden crispy rava dosa is to cook longer on low flame. Once the art of making oats rava dosa is mastered, it is easy enough to make oats onion rava dosa! I have shared the pictures to make both versions. Do drop me a note if you try out this recipe!

Note –
  • The consistency of the batter is really important – it should be watery and free-flowing.
  • After a couple of dosas, if you think the batter is thick, add more water as needed.
  • Before making every dosa, mix the batter well and take a ladle full from the bottom.
  • The tawa/pan must be very hot before pouring the batter and then the dosa should be cooked on low/medium flame for best results.

  1. I haven’t made anything with semolina in a long time. These “pancakes” look and sound amazing! I would think they would serve as a light dinner as well. Will pin the recipe.
    Thanks for taking part in Fiesta Friday and greetings from Germany!
