INSTANT OATS IDLI METHOD:
The very first step in our cooking process is to dry roast oats for 3 minutes on medium flame until you find a nice aroma. After that cool it down and then make powder.
Now it’s time to heat your pan and add oil, and saute all your veggies ginger, green chilies, coriander leaves. After that add Rava and fry it for a minute on medium flame.
Transfer all the items into a mixer jar, add oats, curd, lemon juice, water as required to make a batter. Make the batter similar to our regular idli batter. Mix well. Just before you make idles, add Eno fruit salt and mix well. This gives you a sparkling/airy batter that gives soft spongy idli.
Now take out your idli plate and grease it with oil. Then pour batter into the idli plate and cook it the same as we cook our regular idlies but for a few minutes longer than regular idli for 15 minutes.
Personally, I prefer Quaker quick oats, you can go for any kind of oats, and follow the upper mentioned steps. (Make sure you grind a few pulses if you use rolled oats).
As in veggies, I prefer some carrot and green peas, but again it’s totally on you you can add your favorite veggies. If you don’t want any veggies that also on you.
If you don’t have eno fruit salt, you can go for ¼ cooking soda that will do the work.
You can use the regular Rava also.
Adding ginger and coriander leaves gives a great flavor to the idlis.
You can adjust the curd quantity. Accordingly, adjust water quantity too.
Serve hot with any chutney of your choice. I love coconut chutney the best. I hope you will find these oats idli recipes easier and make healthy and tasty idli for you and your family.
