When I wrote this article for Daily Tiffin elaborating the different Oats and their nutrition, a reader of mine sent me a mail, telling me how she indeed sees the benefits but unfortunately no one in her family has the habit of eating cereal for breakfast. Also since she is working, she does not find time to sit and bake a whole lot of breads/cookies using oats. She asked me if there was any other way to incorporate oats other than the usual cereal/baked methods. I said yes! and that there are many many methods to make use of these nutrition powerhouses. I am a working woman too and I don’t find time to spend that much time in cooking either. I use whole grains in different ways and one way of using oats in my kitchen would be by making these rotis. They are simple, and they follow pretty much the same method of making our regular rotis. Making them this way, one would not find that much of a difference in the taste either – but you, responsible for the family’s nutrition can rest in peace knowing that every bit of that morsel is going to do good for the health.
Prep Time: Under 30 min
Cook Time: Under 30 min
Serves: 2 people
Yield: Makes around 6-8 thin rotis
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/4 cup rolled oats
- i/4 cup oat bran
- salt to taste
To make the oat flour, grind the rolled oats well.
It takes roughly 1/4 cup of rolled oats to make about 1/2 cup oat flour
Add the flour along with the bran and whole wheat, stir in the salt.
Add enough water to make a soft and pliable dough.
Divide the dough into small balls.
Using a rolling pin, roll it into a flatbread. Not too thick nor too thin into a circle.
Place it in a non-stick/iron skillet, use little oil.
Cook until brown on one side. Turn and repeat.
Serve it warm with any dal, side dishes of your choosing. They taste well with pickle too.
