  3. I prepared Green Gram with Oats(Old fashioned Oats) Dosa today.I used only one Green Chilli as the variety which we buy is too hot for the tongue.Dosa came out nicely.When I tasted the Dosa,I had a feeling that the Oats content is not getting cooked properly,though I kept the Dosa in the hot Dosa pan for over a minute for each side.Please guide me to get properly cooked Dosa

    Thanks for the feedback. You can dry fry the oats for a minute and soak it for 1 hour and grind it with dhal. When you make dosa , cover it with lid and cook it.
