  • 1 Cup Oats
  • 2 Tablespoon Besan/Gram Flour Can be replaced with Semolina/Rava
  • 1 Cup Finely Chopped vegetables as you like (eg. Capsicum, spinach, Carrot)
  • ½ cup finely chopped onion (optional)
  • 1-2 grated garlic (optional)
  • ½ inch grated ginger (optional)
  • 1 Green chilli finely chopped (optional and to taste)
  • ½ teaspoon Turmeric powder (Haldi)
  • 1 teaspoon Garam Masala powder
  • ½ teaspoon Red Mirchi Powder - as per taste
  • 1 teaspoon Coriander Powder
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/4 Cup Yogurt
  • Water for mixing as needed
  • Oil for greasing pan


  1. Add Oats in a blender and grind to a coarse powder

  2. Mix all the ingredients and make a semi thick batter.
  3. You should be able to spread it in the pan. It is a bit thick than dosa batter.
  4. Let the batter rest for 10-15 minutes so that the flours hydrate.
  5. Heat a pan and drizzle some oil on it.
  6. Take 1 spoonful ladle and make a chila/pancake/dosa of around 5-6 inches or as preferred.
  7. Cook it on slow gas for 5-7 minutes.
  8. Flip when you see that the top is almost dry and it appears to cook. i.e. it starts leaving the edges of the pan.
  9. Turn and again cook for 5-7 minutes.
  10. Cook on both the sides until golden brown.
  11. Serve it with Sauce or Chutney of your choice.
