Easy oats idli

Instant Oats Idlis – a healthy way to begin your day.

My obsession with oats continues. After the Oats paratha and Oats dhokla, today I am back with the recipe of Instant Oats Idlis.  This is one of the easiest and instant methods to make idlis in a jiffy.  There is no fermentation and grinding required as in the traditional method of making idlis.  I usually roast and grind  the oats into powder and store them so that whenever required, oats idli or oats dhokla can be made in no time.  And not to forget, these idlis turn out very tasty.
