Oats Roti

My recipe for today gives an interesting twist to your everyday staple meal.

On my blog today is the recipe for Oats Roti. Sounds interesting? Read on to know more 🙂

We generally prefer having chapathis / phulkas  for dinner.  Sometimes the same old recipes can get a little boring. I decided to try something different. An oats twist to the regular roti seemed like a good experiment to try 🙂

I was pretty happy with how it turned out. The texture of this roti resembles jowar roti and it  is quite dry compared to a wheat flour phulka.  So a gravy side dish (more like dal) is an ideal combination with oats rotis.

So here is the recipe for my experiment – Oats Roti 🙂

INGREDIENTS:

Oats (rolled or quick) – 1.5 cups

Wheat flour – 1 cup

Salt – as per taste

Hot water – 1 to 1.5 cups

Wheat flour – for coating while rolling

METHOD:

Grind the oats in a mixer into a fine flour textured powder.

In a large mixing bowl, add the oats flour (powdered), wheat flour and salt. Mix well.

Add hot boiling water slowly to the flour, mix well and knead well for about 5-7 minutes to form a soft pliable dough.

Keep it covered for 5-10 minutes.

Take a ball sized dough and roll it into a flat roti, using more wheat flour if the dough is sticking to the rolling board. The edges do not appear as smooth as the normal wheat flour roti but that should not be an issue.

On a tava / pan, cook the roti till it gets slight golden brown spots on both sides.

Once done on the tava, you can place them on direct flame for few seconds. These rotis do not fluff up completely like a phulka but its better to expose them on a direct flame to ensure the rotis are cooked well.

Serve hot with a dollop of butter and a side dish (Palak dal is the side dish shown in the pic below).
