Oats And Gram Flour Pancakes


         Oats is not a favorite with the husband or daughter, so I try to include it in the diet by adding it like this, in pancakes or other dishes. Oats along with besan or gram flour and sauteed onions tasted very good in these pancakes, they were very filling, a good breakfast or even a healthy after school snack..

Need To Have

  • Gram Flour - 1 cup
  • Quick Cooking Oats - 1 cup
  • Onion - 1 big chopped
  • Tomato - 1 chopped
  • Turmeric Powder - 1/4 teaspoon
  • Chilli Powder - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Coriander Leaves - 1/4 cup chopped
  • Cumin Seeds - 1/2 teaspoon



Method
         Mix the gram flour and oats in water and keep. Heat some oil, add the cumin seeds, once it starts sizzling add the chopped onions, saute till it turns transparent. Now add the tomatoes, salt, turmeric and chilli powders, keep sauteing till the tomatoes break down and turn mushy, finally add the coriander leaves, mix it and remove. Now add this mix to the oats and gram flour, mix everything well, add more water if needed to form a pancake batter. Heat a pan, pour a laddle of batter, spread it slightly, add some oil on the sides, cover and cook on one side, then flip it over and cook till brown spots appear on the second side too. Remove and serve it with some tomato sauce or even some yogurt.
Sending it to Zesty South Indian Kitchen for the Hearth And Soul Blog Hop event.

Note
You can even add some grated carrots or some chopped mint leaves to the pancakes.
Cook it on low heat, don't make the pancakes too thin, it'll be difficult to flip them.

  2. Hi Hema, That's a healthy way to snaek in Oats. I use raw veggies in my version but cooking veggies would simplify pancake cooking.

  20. This is great idea to sneak in oats. I've been reading about besan omlette that's like omlette without eggs. I was thinking of trying it... but I guess I'd try this instead...more fibres... :)
