Oats Dosa | Instant Oats Dosai | Quick Tiffin Recipe

I was planning for Pasta for my second day of BM, but after trying this super-simple, delicious Oats Dosa, I could'nt contain my excitement and thought to share this first. This awesome recipe was shared by my colleague cum best friend Vasanthi, which was originally her newly wed daughter-in-law, Aishwarya's recipe. Ever since the engagement, my friend had told a lot about this sweet and bubbly girl Aishwarya and it was no surprise that her recipe was damn so yummy. Even my elder girl who fusses over Atta / Rava dosas loved this and asked me to pack the same for her next day mid-day brunch too. Though I have seen innumerable versions of Oats Dosa on the Net, Iam impressed with this soft and spongy instant Oats Dosa which tasted like South-Indian Adai. I would definitely urge you to try this Dosa for a quick and healthy tiffin.
