When I was on the lookout for breakfast ideas ,I came across Savory oats crepes by Usha of Veg Inspirations.I tried it out after making a few inclusion and exclusions and we all loved it. The original recipe used oats as such but I roasted it and also I excluded the tempering.Usha’s recipe is here .

You need:

Quick cooking oats-1 1/2 cups
Wheat flour-1 cup
Semolina /Sooji/White rava-3/4 cup
Salt to taste
Jeera -1 teaspoon

  • Dry roast the oats till light brown and fragrant and powder finely
  • In a large bowl put in all the ingredients and mix well
  • Add enough water and make a batter of pouring consistency.Take care to avoid lumps.
  • Let it rest for 10-15 minutes.[In the meantime you can prepare chutney.]
  • Heat a griddle and pour a ladleful of batter and spread it to a circle using the back of the ladle.
  • Drizzle a little oil around the edges if u are not using a non stick griddle
  • When the edges lift up from the griddle, flip it over and cook for a minute.
  • Serve hot with sambar / chutney.


Sometimes I pep it up a bit by adding curry leaves,finely chopped onions,coriander leaves etc…

Suggested accompaniments:
Coconut chutney
Peanut chutney
Coriander chutney
Tomato onion chutney

Sending this to EC for Easy Breezy breakfast ,an event started by Coffee of the spice cafe

Bon Appetit…
