Planning a breakfast is easier said than done. Don’t you agree? There are days when you are fully prepared while some days you open the refrigerator door and stare at the fully stocked fridge wondering what to cook.

Diabetics are encouraged to consume more of oats and millets that add fibre, keep them full and helps in stabilizing their blood sugar levels. Well, breakfast is one meal of the day that has to tick all boxes of health, nutrition and taste.

The Oats Mixed Millet Dosa does that especially if you are the kind of people (like us) who don’t like to consume oats porridge (sweet or savoury) every single day.

Tips to include Oats and Millets in your diet

  • Bind them in whole wheat flours or make Gluten free millet rotis
  • Thalipeeth (addition of all gluten free millet)
  • Addition of powdered oats and millet flours in Adai, Dosa, Idli, Uttapam batters to make it fibre rich.

Here is what you need for making the Millet Dosa –

  • Samai Rice or Samak ke chawal or Little Millet
  • Quick Cooking Quaker Oats
  • Bajra or Kambu Flour or Pearl Millet
  • Sprouted Ragi Flour / Nachni Flour / Finger Millet
  • Rice Flour / Arisi Podi

Sprouted Ragi Flour has a lovely earthy aroma. In case you are not able to find it, use normal Ragi Flour.

Instant Oats Millet Dosa, No Fermentation Required

The Oats Mixed Millet Dosa Recipe is Gluten Free, Vegan, Vegetarian, Diabetic Friendly, Requires NO Fermentation and needs minimal prep work (soaking of 2 hours and grinding). The dosa batter can be stored in the refrigerator for couple of days too. You can also experiment with a variety of flours as per availability.

For adults you can serve the millet dosa with a side of coconut chutney or Molagapodi (South Indian Dry chutney powder) or a mixed vegetable sambar too. If you plan to serve this as Brunch, I recommend you cook this delicious spicy Chettinad Mixed Vegetable Curry along with the Dosas.

To make this recipe interesting for kids, you can stuff some vegetables or your regular potato masala too.
