Oats Vada Frankie

Oats vada frankie

Back again to the Oats contest entries. This was the last of the 5 trials that I made with Saffola oats and MHP Masala Vada Mix.

Frankies have always been there on my fun food list. I wouldnt mind hogging on them on any day :) They are not so heavy but would soothe hunger for a while.

When I came up with the patty idea for burger, the immediate though was frankie too. It worked fantastic as well.

Total India version of frankie :)

Oats vada frankie2


For filling -

Oats – ½ cup
Potato – 1
Bengal gram dhall – 1 cup
Chilly powder – 1 tsp
Garam masala powder – ½ tsp
Salt – ½ tsp

For chapathi –

Wheat flour – 1 cup
Oats – ½ cup
Lemon juice
Onion - 1

Oats vada frankie1


Dry roast the oats for 3 mins.

Cook and mash the potato smoothly.

Soak Bengal gram dhall for 1 hour in water. Grind the dhall coarsely without adding much of water and add chili powder, garam masala powder, roasted oats and salt to it. Mix in adequate water to make it into vada batter consistency. Close the bowl and keep it aside for 15 mins.

Now mix in the mashed potato until it forms firm dough.

Make long oval shaped patties. Heat oil in a pan and deep fry it until well cooked and golden brown on both sides. Keep it aside.

To make roti dough:

Powder oats finely.

Take wheat flour, oats powder and salt in a bowl. Add adequate water to it and make roti dough.

Pinch small balls and roll into roti. Heat a tawa and roast the roti by adding few drops of oil.


Place a roti on the work area and spread some ghee on it.

Keep a patty in the center and sprinkle some chopped onions on top. Pour a generous spoon of lemon juice on the patty.

Mix ½ tsp of chilly powder, chaat masala powder and salt together with 2 tblsp of water. Pour one generous spoon of this on the patty as well.

Now roll the Frankie and tie it up with a tissue or foil. Serve hot.

Enjoy eating a healthy and delicious frankie :)
