  • 1 cup cooked Beetroot
  • 1 medium Onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 Green Chilli, chopped
  • ½ inch fresh Ginger, peeled and chopped
  • ½ tsp Cumin Seeds
  • ½ tsp Corinader Powder
  • A pinch of Asafetida
  • ½ cup Yogurt
  • ½ cup Oats
  • ¼ cup Rice Flour
  • ¼ cup Chickpea Flour
  • 1 tablespoon Oil + extra for cooking
  • Salt to taste



  • Batter: Blend all the ingredients in a blender till smooth. The mixture should be the consistency of a crepe batter so add a splash of water if necessary. Let the batter rest for 15-20 minutes. This helps the oats absorb some of the liquid.
  • Cook: Heat a pan or griddle, and spray or brush with a little oil. Pour half a cup of batter with ladle in the center and spread it with the back of the ladle. Sprinkle a teaspoon of oil around the edges of the dosa and cook till golden brown and crisp. Repeat for the remaining batter. Serve with your favorite chutney.
