Instant Oats idli

I had  never ever thought I would be cooking oats idli someday,had not even thought of having oats alone.Now due to its health benefits I'm a big fan of Oats.This idli is a healthier version over our regular idli's.The idli's came out very spongy and tasty.As usual Santoshi tempted me to prepare this idli.I had bookmarked many recipes earlier but hadn't  attempted any.But this measurement came out to be perfect....It is Dil Mange More idli's to me.I prepared coriander chutney as a combination with this.This may be best prepared when you have unexpected guest as it can be done in a jiffy.I adapted this recipe from Shobana Aunty's blog with slight modifications.
