Oats idli recipe, How to make Instant oats idli

Oats idli is a very healthy and instant recipe which I often make  when I get bored of regular idli/ when I am not in mood to make idli/dosa batter. This recipe yields very soft and fluffy idly and is also stomach filling. I am really not a fan of oats but now I am so addicted to it after preparing oats in various forms of course in Indian style as well. This recipe comes handy on days when you run out of idli batter but still crave for idli with healthy twist. This oats idli taste best with any spicy accompany or just a sambar or even a simple chutney powder will do the job. Try this instant oats idli recipe at home and turn your breakfast a healthy and more delicious one. So lets get to the making!
