Instant-oats-idli

I wanted to try instant oats idly for a long time. I used to make a version of this before,by adding a oats as major part in the rava idly,but when I saw the Instant oats idli at sharmis passions,they looked very tempting to try,more over,I wanted to try goduma rava idli too,and this recipe is a double treat for me as it combines both. I love this recipe very much and this tastes very similar to the usual rava idly,more healthy undoubtedly! I made variations a bit to suit my taste buds and convenience..

Instant Oats idli recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Breakfast
Prep Time: 15 mins    |  Cook time: 15 mins    Makes: 8

Ingredients


Oats(I used quick cook)  1 cup 
Wheat rava(godhumai rava)  1/2 cup 
Curd  1/2 cup 
Vegetables of ur choice  As needed 
Water  1/2 cup+more if needed 
salt  1 tsp(adjust per ur taste) 
Eno fruit salt  1/2 tsp 
Lemon Juice  from 1/2 of a lemon 
Green chillies,finely chopped  2 nos 
Chopped coriander leaves  1 tblsp 
Chopped ginger  1 tsp 


To Temper

Oil 1 tblsp
Mustard 3/4 tsp
Urad dal 1 tsp
Channa dal 1 tsp
Curry leaves 1 sprig

Method:

  1. Dry roast Oats for 3 minutes in medium flame until nice aroma comes.Powder it coarsely after it cools down.
  2. o1-horz
  3. Heat a pan with oil and temper the items in the table ‘To temper’ ,followed by the veggies u decided to add and ginger,green chillies,coriander leaves. Give it a quick fry and add the wheat rava and fry for a minute in medium flame.
  4. o2-horz
  5. Transfer to mixing bowl, add oats,salt,curd,lemon juice,water as required and make a batter,which consistency is similar to our idly batter.(neither too runny nor too thick). Mix well. Add Eno fruit salt just before making idlies and mix well. This will give you a frothy/airy batter which gives a soft spongy idly.
  6. o3-horz
  7. Pour the batter in a greased idly plate and cook just like you cook the regular idlies but for more time,say 10-15 minutes,until done.
  8. o4-horz

Notes

  • I used quacker quick cook oats,you can use any kind of oats and follow the same process
  • I added carrot and sometimes also green peas,you can use the veggies of ur choice and its optional too.
  • Add a pinch of cooking soda if u dont have eno fruit salt.
  • U can use the regular rava also..
  • Adding ginger and coriander leaves gives a great flavour to the idlies.
  • You can adjust the curd quantity.Accordingly adjust water quantity too.

Serve hot with any chutney of your choice.

  78. when to add the oats powdered? (not mentioned anywhere)

    ReplyDelete
  79. Hi, i made this for breakfast today. Came out really well and tasty. I added carrot and cabbage. My 1 yr old like it a lot and so did my colleagues at work!

    A query: Should we add 11 tsp of oil as mentioned in the 'Temper' section or is it 1 tsp. Kindly clarify.

    ur recipes r simple and easy. Thanks. Keep up the good work!

  80. Tried this recipe... It was a super hit.. tasted great with sambar :)

    ReplyDelete
  81. Hi, you mentioned above wheat rava is broken wheat. But is it same as cracked wheat (daliya) ?

    ReplyDelete
  82. Just made and had this with coconut chutney. My husband, who doesnt like oats at all, liked it too, so did my fussy kid. I followed the recipe exactly. It was soft, but had a slight slimy texture to it. Was it because I did anything wrong or is it due to the natural texture of oats and dalia?? Do let me know because I am planning to make this again in the near future with sambar.

    ReplyDelete
  83. It was not sticky for me, but in contrast it will be only dry. May be coz of water quantity.

    ReplyDelete
  84. I will try and comment, thank u
