Oats Crepe

Dosa, Indian crepes is a very popular breafast item in India. I love to eat dosa with spicy coconut chutney or tangy tomato chutney. Dosas(Indian crepes) are usually made with fermented white rice and lentils batter.

I recently made oats dosa which does not require the process of fermentation. Thanks to the wonderful blog by Sharadha, I found out the recipe for oats dosa.
In the recipe, ghee is one of the ingredients. You can use corn oil or Earth balance instead of ghee. Sharadha also asks to put sour curd to the dosa batter. Well, I did not add the sour curd to the dosa batter, but the dosas were tasty!

My toddler also liked it! I have made oats dosas a couple of times in a span of two months.

Healthy Vegan Diet

Whenever I tell people that I eat vegan food every day, they assume that I'm health concious and come to the conclusion that vegan diet is always nutritious.

I may be a vegan, but my food is not nutritious on some days. I eat chips and drink coke - vegan food. In short, a bag of chips and and a bottle of coke is vegan, but it's bad for your body.

If you want to eat nutritious food, which is good for you body and the planet, then you should read the book - The Kind Diet. I recently read the book - The Kind Diet written by Alicia Silverstone. The book - The Kind Diet was very interesting.

Alicia's writing is so good. It will inspire you to become vegan. Even if you are not keen on becoming a vegan, you will learn so much from this great book. You should read this amazing book if you want to be healthy and strong for a very long time.

It also has some great recipes. I made Moroccon couscous with Saffron , and Chocolate peanut butter cups from this book. They were so tasty.
