Blogging Marathon# 34: Week 2/ Day 1

Theme: Instant Idlis/ Dosas

Dish: Oats Rava Idli

Today we are starting 2ndvweek of BM# 34 and my theme for this week is ‘Instant Idlis/ Dosas‘. I’m one those lazy people who always forgets to soak dal and rice for idlis and dosas, but dreams of fluffy idlis and crispy dosas. I wake up one morning craving for a good homemade South Indian style breakfast, but alas somebody forgot make the batter(!!!!!) So most of the time I’m making these instant idlis and dosas to satisfy my cravings.
Instant Oats Idli

I mostly make adai (mixed lentil dosas) or pesarattu (moong dal dosas) which require minimum soaking time and no fermentation time. But for the next 3 days, I’m going to post recipes that require no soaking time to up to a maximum of 30minutes soaking time. They are great for mid-week or even mid-day idli/ dosa cravings.

Instant Oats Idli

For the first day, I made Oats rava idli following the recipe from Sailu’s blog. Oats that are dry roasted and powdered are added to semolina and then made into idlis. These don’t require any soaking time and can be made right away. Grated veggies can be added to the batter for a more colorful and nutritious idlis.
