Healthy Oats Chilla- Healthy Savoury Oats Pancake

A healthy breakfast or brunch with oats…

If you are bored of oatmeal, masala oats or oats soup; here is a different recipe that you can try with oats. It’s like pancakes, a savory version with mixed veggies and spices. Tasted really good and I served this along with over-easy eggs.

  1. Grind the oats in a blender or food processor to a fine powder.

  3. Add water and combine well using a spoon to make into a batter.
  4. You can add any kind of mixed veggies of your choice, or any spices as well.
  5. Place a pan over medium heat, grease with ½ tsp ghee.
  6. Pour 2 spoonful of oats batter, spread using the back of the spoon.

  8. Flip over and let the other side cook well. You can drizzle with some more ghee.
  9. Transfer to a plate.
  10. If the batter gets thick as the oats will absorb water, before pouring the batter to the pan you can add 1 to 2 tbsp more water and mix well.
