Oats Idly

When I saw this oats idly recipe here I decided to give it a try. I usually prepare oats idly using curd. When I tried this version, I got really soft and spongy oats idly.


  • Oats : 1 cup
  • Cooked rice : 1/2 cup
  • Urad dal : 1/2 cup
  • Fenugreek seeds : 1/4 tspn
  • Salt


  • Soak urad dal for 1 hour. Drain it and keep aside.
  • Roast the oats and grind it into a fine powder.
  • Grind urad dal, fenugreek seeds,cooked rice and powdered oats .
  • Dont add too much water.The ground paste should have a thick consistency.
  • Transfer it into a steel bowl and add required amount of salt .

  • Keep it undisturbed for the whole night.
  • The batter will be raisen in the morning. Mix it gently and prepare soft idlies by using your idly cooker .

Note :

  • You can try different variations of this idly by adding curry leaves, chopped ginger and some veggies to the batter.
