Re-Posting..an old favourite...Masala Oats Roti

I am Re-posting this Oats Roti..which is our family favourite. I love this roti...specially because it very healthy and it very tasty too. I am reposting it and sending it to the Roti mela hosted by Srivalli.

We love it... hope u love it too... So here goes the Masala Rotti post. :)

A healthy and tasty oats snack. Oats, like any other varieties of grains, belong to the Graminae family (grasses)'s called 'Jai' in Hindi. Oats are excellent source of soluble dietary fibre. They are derived from natural whole grain. Oats'quality is enhanced further, by mixing it with Oat Bran.
Some Facts..:
BENEFITS OF SOLUBLE FIBRE : Soluble fibre and blood pressure - high fibre white oats helps to fight against excess blood cholesterol. Results of many medical studies showed that Gel formation by soluble fibre interferes directly with transport and absorption of liquids (fats) in the small intestine. Dietary fibre binds and absorbs bile acids and transports it into the calon for excretion,thereby responsible for increasing degradation of chloesterol to replace the bile salts, thus lowering the blood cholesterol level.

SOLUBLE FIBRE AND DIABETES: Soluble fibre like the type present in hi-fibre white oats are beneficial for diabetics too. Eating any normal diet controlling carbohydrate, can lead to a rise in blood sugar level in diabetics, whereas food rich in dietary fibre produces an opposite effect i.e. lowers the blood sugar level and thus, reduces the need of insulin to stabilize the blood sugar level.

SOLUBLE FIBRE AND OBESITY: Soluble fibre like the type found in hi-fibre white oats can help in weight control as it can replace high fat and calorie in food and can lead to reduction in total calorie intake.

SOLUBLE FIBRE AND IT'S OTHER BENEFITS: Soluble fibre can also prevent constipation, gastro-intestinal disorders, colon cancer, piles and varicos vein.

This is a lovely and tasty recipe which can be easily made and be given to children who as such wouldnt like to eat the bland white oats as it is.This is a very tasty recipe and I am sure u will love it.

You need :

White Oats : 1 cup
Rava - 1/2 cup
Sour buttermilk - 1 cup
Tomatoes - 1 large
Onion - 1
Green chillies - 3
Ginger - 1" piece
Salt to taste
Fresh Coriander leaves

Method :
In a big bowl put the oats, rava, sour butter milk. mix well. Now add in the chopped tomatoes, green chillies, coriander leaves, ginger and the salt.Mix in a bit of water if needed and make a semi liquid batter in such a consistency that it can be held in hand.

Now heat a non stick tawa. Pour some oil on it. Take the batter in one hand and place it in centre of the tawa like a lump. Now using ur palm, gently spread the batter on tawa. This is look like a thick dosa/ Roti.

Let the roti cook well. Add oil to it and roast it on either side by flipping in between.Cook till golden brown.

I believe we can't distort oats in this way. Oats are best the way they are eaten these days...boil in milk & add brown sugar and relish.Sometimes new experiments screw the goodness of some simple foods. Forgive me for my frank opinion.

Thanks for this gorgeous recipe! It looks yum and will be perfect with my food intolerances (i'll find a substitute for buttermilk as I'm allergic to milk n soy!).. Will post a comment once we've tried it. My husband is already mega excited (he's the head-chef and loves cooking)!
