Oats Pakoda - Healthy Snack

Photobucket

Oats has become a common ingredient at home used in every other form these days. I have been adding them to almost all the milk shakes to make it healthy. 

After all the sweets that were made with oats, all at home demanded for a savory, so me and mom came up with this yummy Oats pakoda. 

It turned out to be a crispy, delicious and healthy tea time snack :)

Ingredients:

Saffola Oats – 2 cups
Roasted gram flour – 1 cup
Besan flour – 2 cups
Rice flour – 4 cups
Ghee – 8 tsps
Cooking soda – 1 tsps
Ginger – ½ inch piece
Garlic – 5 pods
Green chillies – 4
Chilly powder – 2 tblsp
Salt – for taste
Curry leaves – 20
Cashew nuts - 20

Method:

Grind ginger, garlic and chillies by adding a little water into a fine paste. Chop curry leaves finely. Break cashew nuts into small pieces.

Take the ghee and cooking soda in a broad mixing plate. Beat the soda and ghee nicely with your palm until frothy.

Now add saffola oats, roasted gram flour, besan flour, rice flour, ginger garlic paste, curry leaves, cashew nuts, chilly powder and salt to it and mix well with your hands until well combined.

Now in a smaller plate, take 1/5 of the above mixed powder and add water little by little to it and make it into dough. The dough should be crumbly and not wet. (Pakoda dough consistency)

Heat oil in deep pan and drop small portions of the mixed dough and fry until golden brown in medium flame.

Collect on a paper towel to remove excess oil and seal it in air tight containers.

Tips:

Do not make large sized pakodas. They would turn out to be soft and uncooked inside which would obviously get spoilt soon.
