Vegetable Oats Idly | The Best Recipe for Oats Idly

Hey guys, after a long absence I'm back with a healthy breakfast recipe.
I had my doubts while trying this dish out as I am not used to making savoury things with oats and I was worried about the texture too. 
To my surprise the proportions in this recipe make the idyls turn fluffy and not mushy at all. I do apologize for the pics, I was too excited to taste the dish so clicking pics in good lighting was not at all on my mind.

Do try it out, I'm sure you all will love these amazing oat idyls.


Oats 2 Cup
Semolina 1 Cup
Baking powder 1/2 Teaspoon
Salt To taste
Yogurt 1/2 Cup
Onion 1 medium size cut fine 
Water 1 Cup approx (add more or less to form a thick batter)
Corn 1/2 Cup
Peas 1/2 cup
Green chilli 2 cut finely
Ginger 1/2 inch grated
Coriander chopped
1 tsp sugar
Pinch pepper
Mustard seeds 1 tsp
Urad Dal 1 tsp
Fried cashew for garnish

Beans and Carrot add more taste and makes the idly look all the more colorful but my husband does not like these veggies n this idyls so I skipped them, however I highly recommend  them for a much more healthy option.

Start by adding some oil to a pan, add the mustard seeds along with the urad dal.
Allow to get golden.
Lightly sauté the onion, green chili and ginger.

Add the veggies and the semolina. Keep the flame on a low and sauté till the semolina is well coated.
Do not skip this step, what it does is the semolina gets a bit toasted and don't stick to each other.
This helps in getting a much more fluffy idly.

Mix well and transfer to a bowl, cool for 5 min.
Add oats, baking powder, sugar, pepper ,salt and chopped coriander.

Now add the yogurt and mix well, slowly add water to form a batter.

Make sure to not add too much water at a time as the batter can get too watery and they won't form idyls.  Now allow the batter to rest for 20 min (resting the batter is very important)

After 20 min spoon out the batter into greased idly moulds and top with one fried cashew.
Steam for 15/20 min or till fully cooked.

Now your done !

Serve these with coconut chutney and some spicy peanut chutney powder topped with ghee.
Enjoy !!!
