Nutritious Oats Idli

Nutritious Oats Idli

Makes: 8 Idlis

Note: Though these Idlis may not be as soft and fluffy as normal Idlis ( the one's made of urad dal and rice ) these are very tasty and easy to prepare.


Oats: half cup
Suji (semolina): half cup
Curd: 1 cup
Water: half cup (approximately)
Salt as required
Oil for greasing


Grind oats into a powder and keep it aside.

Put this powder, suji, curd and salt in a bowl and beat the mixture well. Add enough water to make a smooth batter of thick yet slightly pouring consistency.

Keep the batter aside for 15-20 minutes.

Boil 2 cups of water in a cooker and grease the idly stand. Put 1 ladleful of batter in each idli cup. Place the idli stand in the boiling water and close the cooker. Cook on steam for about 15 minutes on medium heat. Allow to cool naturally and remove the idlis . Serve hot.

Serving tip: Tastes good with coconut chutney / tomato chutney and sambar.
