Masala Oats Wheat Rava Idli

I know this blog is all about low calorie foods and here I come with yet another yummiest low calorie Idli.I have started having oats as porridge mixed with milk in the morning and got bored in a couple of days . Then when I was about to quit oats I saw this Oats idli in lots of blogs , its simplicity urged me to try this .
Oh yeah its not only simple but the most yummiest idli I have eaten so far. If you are on diet , it is so hard to resist your tonque with 3 idlis . You would definitely ask for more .I have added all masalas into the idli itself so that you dont require any side dish . This is perfect for lunch box also .


  1. White oats - 1 1/2 cups 
  2. Wheat Rava - 1/2 cup.
  3. Butter milk - 1 cup 
  4. Grated Carrot - 1/2 cup
  5. finely chopped green chillies - 2 nos.
  6. Coriander leaves - few
  7. Big onion - 1 no.
  8. Eno salt - 1 1/4 tsp.
  9. Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp.
  10. Channa dal - 1/2 tsp.
  11. Urad dhal - 1/2 tsp.
  12. Turmeric powder
  13. Oil - 1 tsp.
  14. salt to taste

Method :
  1. Roast the oats for about a minute.
  2. Heat a pan , add oil and season it with mustard seeds, channa dhal, urad dhal.
  3. Add onion and fry till it changes colour .
  4. Add green chillies, onion, curry leaves, turmeric powder and saute for few seconds.
  5. Add this fried mixture into oats and Rawa .
  6. Add buttermilk and salt and nicely mix.
  7. Finally add grated carrots. 
  8. The consistency should be of idli batter. If the butter milk is not enough , can add some more water to adjust the consistency.
  9. Add eno salt and gently give a stir. Pour it into idli steamer and steam it for about 12 mins.
