Power Packed Dosa / 5 Powder Crispy Dosa - Healthy Breakfast Ideas / Low Fat / Diet Food

I always experiment with different types of dosas, idlis..Since it is a staple food for us (south indian). Hubby prefers dosa or idli for breakfast than chapati or poori. I make chapati, poori or oats occasionally for breakfast. You check out my experiment for dosa, idlis by clicking on the link.

One fineday i found a packet of ragi and rice flour in the fridge which contains only a few spoonful of flour in it. It cannot be made into anything else except adding it in a dosa batter or idli batter. I thought to use that in a dosa. I added some oats powder, wheat flour in it..I added some sooji into it to make it crispy. Totally it is a power packed dosa to have for breakfast. Hence the name..

Preparation Time: 10 mins

Cooking Time: 2 to 3 mins for one dosa
Serves : 5 to 6

Oats - 1 cup powdered

Wheat Flour / Atta - 2 cups

Turmeric powder / Manjal podi - 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Oil for Pan frying

Take a mixing bowl add all the ingredients except oil and mix well.

Add enough water to make it into a thin batter..Don't make it too thin..

Let the batter sit for 15 mins..

Heat a nonstick tawa on medium high heat.

Pour a ladleful of batter on the hot tawa and drizzle with oil all around the sides.

When it starts to brown in the bottom, Flip them over and cook on other side too.

When it is cooked. Remove them from the tawa and serve with chutney or sambar.
