Oats Idli (Quick Fix)

The ability of this cereal to lower blood cholesterol is commendable. I have experienced this personally. Make it a regular breakfast item. I know, we think only of the porridge when we say Oats but there’s more.  I have given the oats puttu  recipe, now, the idlis! No compromise on taste, I promise.

Oats: 1 cup
Semolina/rava/sooji: 1/4cup
Fresh curd: 1/2cup
Fruit salt/Eno: 1/2tsp
Salt to taste

To temper:
Onion: 1 chopped fine
 Green chilli: 1 chopped fine
Curry leaves:  a few
Oil: 2 tsps


Mix curd with the oats, rava, salt & half a cup of water. Keep for a while to soak.
In the mean time, do the tempering. You can use urad dal or channa dal also , to give that extra bite.Pour enough water to get a dropping consistency. 
Stir in the fruit salt.
Grease idli moulds & pour a ladle full into each & steam for 10 to 15 minutes.
This takes a little longer to cook unlike the rice idlis.
Serve with any chutney/sambar.
