Instant oats - 3 cups
Raw rice - 1 cup
Urad dal(whole) - 1 cup
Fenugreek seeds - 1 tsp
Salt - to taste
Oil - as required

Wash and soak rice for 3-4 hours.
Wash urad dal till water cleared. Soak in a separate bowl for 2 hours before grinding along with fenugreek seeds.
Prior to 1 hour of grinding, soak oats in just enough water to cover and an inch above.
Drain excess water from urad-fenugreek seeds and grind the dal till fluffy adding little water (reuse the water used for soaking dal) at a time.
Drain out the water from rice and grind rice along with urad paste.
Once batter is smooth, transfer to a pot with ample room for fermenting.
Now grind the oats along with water it has been soaking in.Grind till smooth.
Transfer it to the same pot that has rice-urad batter.
Mix well the batter, preferably with hands. Cover and let it ferment for 8-9 hours.
DONOT ferment the batter for more than 8-9 hours as the batter would get spoilt if kept longer.
Store the batter in refrigerator till ready to use.
When ready for making dosas, add salt and water(if required). Mix well.
Heat the tawa on med-high. Pour a ladle-full of batter in the center when tawa is hot.


In a circular motion spread the batter outwards.Drizzle few drops of oil and cook on the bottom side. Flip over and cook for another minute.
Serve with chettinad cauliflower masala as side dish or spread a tsp of the masala on the dosa and fold from both ends.
