Oats and Moong Dal Dosa

My mother in law is a serious heart patient with a pacemaker supporting her heart function and since heart ailment is considered to be hereditary, I try making sure that my husband eats healthy low cholesterol food as much as possible though it's difficult to control diet of a guy of his age who is in constant craving for binging fast food or tasty oily dishes. Still I try doing as best as possible for me to monitor his food intake.

Oats is a highly nutritious food, rich in the content of soluble and insoluble dietary fiber. One important component present in oats is beta-glucans which specifically helps reduce cholesterol in bloodstream. Since oats itself is tasteless, it might not suit the tastebud of many people looking for only delectability in their dishes.My husband being that kind, I need to think outside the box to feed him oats without compromising with the taste factor.With that thought I mixed oats and moong dal (golden gram) together and prepared moong oats dosa.It is easy and simple to make and you can have it with tomato sauce or curd or with any vegetable curry.

Ingredient: (5-6 dosas)                                          Cooking time: 30 minutes

2 cups of Moong dal (Golden gram)

1 cup of oats

Coriander or Cilantro leaves (finely chopped)

5-6 green chillies (chopped)

salt to taste

white oil for cooking


1. Soak the moong dal for half an hour and then put both moong dal and oats in a blender and make a paste.

2. Give half cup of water or as required into the paste and make a batter of smooth consistency. Add coriander leaves and green chillies. Give salt as per taste. You may add onion and tomatoes to enhance the taste further.

3. Add oil into a non-sticky skillet and pour one cup of batter into it and lightly roast it from both side. Dosa is ready.
