Instant Vegetable Oats Idli

Oats Idli an instant, yummy and healthy breakfast dish for all age groups. Sometimes I forget to soak the rice and dal in water to prepare our traditional idli batter and I get annoyed with myself as I will be finding difficult to plan for next day breakfast. After I started making Instant Oats Idli, nowadays I don't even mind if I forget to prepare the traditional batter as Oats Idli is very instant and at the same time it is very healthy compared to our conventional Idli. Oats Idli are great even for kids lunch box.

We can use the mini idli plate and use the oats idli batter and make yummy mini idlis. We can add different vegetables to the batter and make oats idli even more healthier. Lets see the procedure to do Instant Vegetable Oats Idli...

Oats2 Cups
Rawa / Semolina1 Cup
Sour Curd1.5 Cups
Green Peas1 tablespoon
Chopped Coriander Leaves1 tablespoon
Soda salt (Cooking Soda)1/2 teaspoon
SaltTo taste

*Vegetables are as per your choice. 

For Seasoning:
Mustard Seeds1/2 teaspoon
Green Chilli2
Channa dal1 teaspoon
Cooking oil1 Teaspoon

  1. Take a pan and add oats to it. Dry roast the oats till we get a nice aroma and the oats turn slightly brown color. Remove the roasted oats and allow it to cool off and then grind it in a mixer to a nice powder

  2. Heat oil in the pan and add mustard seeds. When the mustard seeds starts to sputter, add channa dal and fry till the dals turns golden brown color. Add chopped green chillies and saute it for 10 seconds. Add Grated carrot, chopped beas and capsicum along with green peas and saute them in medium flame for 2 minutes

  3. Add semolina to the pan and roast them for 3 minutes.When the semolina slightly changes its color add chopped coriander leaves and mix well and remove from flame. 

  4. Take the contents in the pan to a bowl and add powdered oats along with salt. To this add sour curd and mix well. .

  5. Add water to adjust the consistency of the batter like our traditional idli batter. Finally add soda salt and mix well and keep the batter for 5-10 minutes. We can notice lots of bubbles in the batter. The addition of soda salt helps in getting softer and fully idlis. Grease the idli plates with oil and pour the oats idli batter 

  6. Steam cook them for 10 minutes. After the idlis are cooked completely, allow the idli plates to cool off completely. Using a wet spoon, gently remove each idli and place it in a serving plate

  7. Serve the delicious Instant Vegetable Oats Idli with Tiffen Sambar, Chutney or milagai podi (Gun Powder). I always prefer to have oats idli with milagai podi which is a great combination for this. Enjoy your healthy breakfast and share your comments!!!

Did you add turmeric powder when cooking the vegetables? How did it get its yellow color?

Hi, No I did not add any turmeric powder. Roasting semolina for 2-3 minutes will give a slight yellow color

What is soda salt? anyother option for soda salt? soda salt same as baking soda??? .... used in baking.

Dear Subbu Mami,
thanks to your oats idli recipe. I tried the oats idli at home and ably help by my wife. The idlis has come out very well. We having a big box full of oats past one month and we were wondering how to consume it. Now we have a reason to make idlies and upma out of it.
Thank you,
Warm Regards

Hello, Yes, both baking soda and soda salt are same.

Hello Radha, Soda Salt is nothing but the cooking soda/baking soda. You can get this in grocery shops. You can also add ENO. You can also go without adding Soda salt, but the idli won't come out fluffy and soft..

That's nice ofyou Shivkumar. Glad that the Idli came out very well.

Dear mam,if we cook in pressure cooker hw many mts need we cook? sour c urd or youghurt is better for oats idli?

We need to cook for atleast 10 minutes if we are using 3-4 plates otherwise 5 minutes are enough. Sour curd would give nice taste than the fresh curd.

oats not available in stores. Packed oats are costly. where can I get raw oats just like rice or tell me

Can we store the batter. If yes then for how long?

instead of baking soda, i used eno salt, with which the recipes are spongy and comfortable for the tummy!

hello mam,
could you please explain what is eno salt

What is eno salt? Is it the usual eno we consume for digestion? If yes, can we give idli with eno to kids too?

Yes Parvathy, it is the usual eno salt. We can very well give it to kids its better than appa soda(Soda salt)
