Oatmeal Roti

I keep talking about utilizing food articles lying around unused in the kitchen and how to make something new out of everyday mundane dishes but I never before thought of how to make out simple staple roti or chappati interesting. Well, I have this huge box of toasted oats sitting in my kitchen and every night I resolve to make a healthy breakfast with it but never get around to doing it. Somehow, having oats for breakfast does not sound so appealing the mornings….he he he….So I decided to mix it up with whole wheat flour and it resulted in oatmeal roti.

Oats roti is high on fibre due to oats and so it is very healthy. Also, I have made roti and not paratha so there is minimal involvement of oil, basically to hold the dough together.

Preparation Time – 20 mins

Servings – 6


2 cups whole wheat flour (gehun ka atta)

1 cup oats

1 onion

1 green chilli

1 tblsp oil

2 tblsp salt

Chop onion and green chilli into very small pieces. Slice the chilli longitudinally to get desired result if required. Add flour, oats and oil. Knead dough out of it by adding little water at a time. Very little water is required so make sure it is added little by little.

Once the dough is ready, shape 6 round balls out of it. Roll each ball into a thin chapatti and cook it like a regular roti till brown spots appear. Apply ghee and serve if desired.
