Method of Preparation:

For the dosa batter:

2) Grind the oats in order to make a powder and set this aside.
3) Grind the urad dal and fenugreek seeds to a smooth paste with a little water. Cover and keep this aside for at least 4 hours. Add salt and mix well.
4) Put in the oat’s powder and urad dal mixture, in a bowl and beat the mixture well.
5) Add enough water to make a smooth batter of thick yet slightly pouring consistency.

For the stuffing:
1) Heat oil in a pan, add the mustard seeds, curry leaves and turmeric powder.
2) When the mustard seeds crackle, add the asafoetida. Add the sprouts and all the
vegetables to the tempering and mix well.
3) Divide the filling mixture into 2 equal portions and set aside.

How to proceed:
1) Heat and grease a non-stick tava (griddle) with a little oil.
2) Pour a ladleful of the batter on the tava and spread it evenly in a circular motion.
3) Drizzle a little oil on the sides to allow cooking.
4) Top with one portion of the filling mixture and spread it evenly over the dosa.
5) When the lower side of the dosa is lightly browned, fold over to make a semicircle.
6) Repeat to make 1 more dosa. Serve hot.
