Oats are one of the superfoods that help in reducing belly fat and shed extra pounds of our body weight. These are incredibly nutritious. These are rich in antioxidants, protein, fiber, and other essential nutrients.
As this contains highly soluble fiber it improves digestion and bowel movement also. The high protein content keeps one full for longer and hence stop craving for food.

How to make Oats Idli (vegetable loaded)?
Here I have added lots of veggies to make it a healthier twist. This is a way we can add veggies to our kid’s diet also. However, this is not essential but vegetables are always the best in any diet.
So you can either add veggies directly to the idli batter or you may like to saute them with tempering of cumin seeds, mustard seeds, curry leaves, etc.
I have added sauteed veggies here.
Step 1: Preparing Vegetable Sautee
Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, onion, ginger, green chilies, and saute for a minute. Then add finely chopped veggies and a little salt. You can also add a pinch of turmeric too. Saute veggies are soft and cooked al dente.
You can roast semolina or rava along with veggies. Add rava and saute for 2 minutes.
Once done, remove to a clean bowl and keep aside. We will add this to the idli batter mixture for steaming.
Step 2: Preparing batter
Take 1.5 cups of oats and 1/2 cup of semolina and 1/4 cup of curd.
Dry roast oat flakes for 2 – 3 minutes. Keep stirring else it will burn quickly. Then remove to another plate and cool completely.
Transfer to a blending jar and make a powder of these roasted flakes.
In a mixing bowl add powdered oats, semolina or rava, curd and add water gradually making a thick batter. Whisk it for 2 minutes.
Add sauteed veggies to the batter. Add some salt to taste.
Cover with a lid and keep aside for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes check the consistency. Normally it gets thicker when semolina soaks moisture. So add little more water and make it to an idli batter consistency.
Whisk the batter well (in one direction) with a wired whisk.
In the end, add a tsp eno or baking soda and just mix it well with a spoon (don’t whisk).
Now grease the moulds and place 1 tbsp batter on moulds and steam on a idli maker or steamer or pressure cooker. If you are using pressure cooker then don’t forget to remove the whistle.
Steam for 12 – 15 minutes. Turn off heat but don’t open immediately. Remove the mould and let it cool for a minute or two. Then with help of a spoon scrape out the idlis.
Serve hot with sambar or chutneys.
