So this recipe came up when I had a packet of broken wheat almost reaching expiry date. Also, I am doing meal planning and prepping for the week. Check my insta/FB stories every weekend as I share my plan there. And it has helped me to make use of my ingredients well and finish them on time. DALIYA OATS IDLIS is a good way to eat healthy yet it is a different dish. Pair it up with a good chutney and you are sorted. Go on and try this recipe. Don’t forget to read the recipe notes.

  9. Pour this over broken wheat/oats batter and mix well. Add water to adjust the consistency, It should be thick like idly batter.
  10. Grease a idli plate and heat up the idli stemer. If you want to give shapes then use a flat plate or dhokla plate to pour the batter in.
  11. Steam for 5-8 minutes or until done.
  12. Let it cool down for a bit. De-mould. If you needs shapes then shape the idli using cookie cutter.

Recipe Notes
  1. You can skip baking soda all together. I did not use soda at all. The idlis won’t be very fluffy but is good enough.
  2. Add more veggies of your choice.
  3. You can skip green chilly.
  4. If you do not have cookie cutter then use a knife to cut into desired shape – diamond, square,etc.
