making instant oats dosa:

  1. on a medium flame heat a non stick pan. drizzle ½ tsp of oil and spread it with the spoon.
  2. stir the batter in the bowl and take a ladle full of batter and pour it from the circumference to the center.
  3. do not spread the batter with the back of the ladle like the way we do for regular dosas. fill the small or large gaps with a bit more of the batter.
  4. sprinkle some oil around the sides and in the small holes or gaps and cook the dosa.
  5. once the base becomes crisp and golden, flip and cook the other side.
  6. once this side is cooked and crisp, flip again and you can cook the first side to make it more crisp. fold on the tava and remove.
  7. serve these instant oats dosas with coconut chutney, veg sambar or idli-dosa podi.
