Oats Idli

Srilatha Breakfast, Snacks And Light meals, South Indian Leave a Comment

Oats are good for you. Let’s just accept that. But one could get tired of eating oats only as a porridgy thing. I needed to find ways to incorporate oats in our meals without getting bored of it. Tried oats dosa – did not like it. Tried it instead of rice with rasam and yogurt. Meh. Rasam was alright, but didn’t care for it with sambar or yogurt. Tried idlis. And…we had a winner! Technically, this is oats rava idli as I add a litlte bit of rava (1 part rava to 3 parts oats so there’s definitely more oats). This is a quick recipe, and with the right chutney/podi, will definitely satisfy your idli craving as well – and there’s no need to soak, grind, ferment, etc. On to the recipe now!

Apple Crisp

Fall…apples, cooler weather, apples, crisp mornings, apples, cider, hay rides, pumpkins, apples,….and that brings me to today’s recipe:
Apple Crisp! This is an unbelievably easy, no-fuss, somewhat healthy dessert.

This one is for my daughter – she loves it, and usually makes extra topping as some of it never sees the oven because she ends up eating it!
Here’s the recipe – the measures are all approximate, increase or decrease the butter, sugar quantities per your taste/requirements. I also use raw sugar instead of white sugar in the apple layer, and didn’t use flour at all.
Have fun with it!
