Oats has always been my last resort or life saving ingredient ;) I mean to say I resort to them only when mom makes breakfast that I really hate ;)
But just as every story has a twist, my oats story too has one. Once I realized tat oats is not just for boring porridges and it can be incorporated in many other yummylicious dishes, I couldn't stay away from it :)
Being a south Indian, dosa or pancake is something so inevitable. Hence oats in dosa has become my family favorite now. :)
Handy to make, yummy to eat and healthy to the core. :)
Oats - 2 cups
Chickpea flour(Basen/Kadalamavu) - 1/2 cup
Rice flour - 1/2 cup
Carrot - 1
Onion - 1
Bell peppers(Capsicum) - 1/2
Cabbage shredded - 1/2 cup
Green Chillies - 2
Salt - for taste
Powder the oats in the mixie. Grate carrots and chop all the vegetables finely.
Take all the three flours, shredded vegetables, salt, finely chopped coriander leaves and curry leaves in a bowl and add just enough water to make a slightly thick batter.
Heat a tawa or non-stick pan and pour one laddle full of the batter and spread slightly with the laddle. Add few drops of oil and roast on both sides.
Healthy, quick and yummy vegetable oats pancakes are ready to eat :)
Serve hot with pickle or chutney of your choice. :)
Happy making :)
You can also reduce the amount of water and make a thick dough of the same and pat them on plastic sheets. Transfer them to the pan and roast them too.
You can also replace the chickpea flour with corn meal.
