Oats Roti recipe with step by step photos
Oats Roti. Oats can be perked up with an assortment of ingredients to make variations of the oats roti. Here are some of my favorite oats roti recipes :
To prepare the Oats Roti dough, in a deep bowl, take whole wheat flour. Wheat is a staple grain in Indian households and widely used to make various Indian flatbread recipes.
Add the quick cooking rolled oats. Alternatively, you can even grind the oats in a mixer jar to form oats flour and then add. Oats is high in fiber and therefore helps in lowering cholesterol levels. To know more nutritional benefits of oats, read our article
Next add finely chopped onions. It is very important to chop them nicely or else the oats roti might tear while rolling.
Add the green chillies. You can substitute it with red chilli powder.
Add the coriander.
Add the salt. You can skip the other ingredients and make a plain oats roti with wheat flour, oats, salt and oil too.
Add 1 tsp of peanut oil. Oil not only binds together all the ingredients but also, helps in keeping the oats roti soft.
Mix together all the ingredients.
Gradually 2 tbsp of water, which would help in binding the dough.
Using approx. ½ cup of water, try to form dough for the Oats Roti. The amount of water required to form soft dough may vary depending on the quality of flour. Knead into a soft dough smooth just like the chapati dough.
Cover with a lid and keep aside for 15 to 20 minutes.
Divide the dough into 10 equal portions.
Sprinkle a little flour on the rolling surface.
Take a portion of the dough and flatten it.
Roll out each portion of Oats Roti into a 125 mm. (5") diameter circle using a little whole wheat flour for rolling. Do it gently as it tends to tear easily due to the addition of onions and whole oats.
Heat a non-stick tava (griddle) and place the Oats Roti on it. Cook the roti till small bubbles appear on the top surface.
Flip and using ½ tsp of peanut oil, cook till Oats Roti turns golden brown in colour from both the sides.
Serve the Oats Roti immediately with any subzi of your choice.
