Oats Idly

Idly is a most popular South Indian breakfast.Idly itself is a healthy dish,definitely Idly with oats is also a healthy version.Got to know this recipe from many blogs and frens but never gave a try,these days I wanted to try different varieties using oats which makes my Hubby very Happy.I was wondering how it would taste,the taste was very similar to Semiya Idly .


Oats: 1 cup
Sooji: 1/2 cup
Curd: 3.5 cups
Salt:To Taste
ENO Fruit Salt:1 spn

For Tempering:

Chenna Dal:2 spns
Jeera:1 spn
Mustard Seeds:1/2 spn
Green Chillies:4-5(finely chopped)
Dry Red Chillies:2-3(cut)
Curry Leaves:10 (chopped)
Chopped Cilantro:2-3 spns
Broken Cashews:2 spns
Grated Ginger:1 spn
Hinge:1/2 spn
Oil:2 spns


1.Dry roast the oats till golden color and blend it to a coarse powder,in the same pan dry roast the sooji and combine both oats and sooji in a bowl,let them cool,add salt to taste and beaten curd,mix well and set aside
2.In a pan add oil,when hot add cumin seeds and mustard seeds,let them splatter and now add the chenna dal and fry till it turns golden color,add the green chillies,dry red chillies,broken cashews,hinge,curry leaves and fry till done.
3.Add the tempering to the oats and curd mixture mix well and finally add the chopped cilantro and once again a quick stir.Add water to the oats mixture to get the normal Idly batter consistency.Let the mixture sit for 15 mins.Now add the ENO salt,mix and put the batter in thegreased  idly plates or moulds and steam them on medium flame for 12-14 mins.
4.Serve hot with any chutney or sambar.

I served it with Karapodi and Cabbage Karivepaku Chutney.
