Bean and Oats Dosa
Cook time
Total time
Recipe type: Bread
Cuisine: Indian
  • 1 cup baby lima beans (cover with about 3 inches with water and soak at least overnight)
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • ½ cup chopped coriander leaves
  • 2 green chillies, chopped
  • 10-12 curry leaves
  • ½-inch piece of ginger, chopped
  • Salt to taste
  1. Put all the ingredients in a blender or a dosa grinder and blend with enough water till you have a runny and smooth batter. The batter should be runnier than a pancake batter, but thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.
  2. Heat a cast-iron or non-stick griddle.
  3. Using a rounded ladle, pour about ¼ cup of the dosa batter in the center of the griddle. Quickly, using the rounded bottom of the ladle, start spreading the batter outward from the center in a spiralling design, until you have a dosa about 6-7 inches in diameter.
  4. You can pour a few drops of oil around the dosa's edge to make it crispier, or just spray with some non-stick cooking spray.
  5. When the underside is golden-brown, flip over and cook another minute or two.
  6. Serve hot with chutney.
