I used to make besan ka cheela all the time. Because hubby loves it. But recently I came to know about the oats cheela recipe through Neeta Mehta’s recipes. I gave it a try and we both liked it.

Key Ingredients:

Oats: Oats provide enough strength and energy to carry yourself through busy and hectic mornings when eaten in breakfast. So be sure to include it in your breakfast.

Here I have used quick cooking rolled oats and powdered it into the grinder. You can use any variety of oats.

Besan (Gram flour): The batter and end produce made from only oats powder become slimy and sticky. So we are adding besan here to avoid that.

Even though little basen is added in this oats chilla, this taste totally different than besan cheela. It has more nutty taste because of the presence of powdered oats in it.

Mixed vegetables: Here I have used onion, carrot, capsicum and tomato. You can add any other or skip any vegetable. use whatever you like or whatever you have available. Be sure not to skip ginger, green chilies and coriander leaves.

Keep in mind that chilla made from oats are more filling and little heavier than the one only made from besan. Addition of ajwain (carom seeds) will help in easier digestion.
