Bean and Oats Dosa

Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time30 mins
Total Time30 mins
Course: Bread
Cuisine: Indian


  • 1 cup baby lima beans (cover with about 3 inches with water and soak at least overnight)
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup chopped coriander leaves
  • 2 green chillies , chopped
  • 10-12 curry leaves
  • 1/2- inch piece of ginger , chopped
  • Salt to taste


  • 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.
  • Heat a cast-iron or non-stick griddle.
  • Using a rounded ladle, pour about 1/4 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.
  • 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.
  • When the underside is golden-brown, flip over and cook another minute or two.
  • Serve hot with chutney.
