Oats being part of my daily meal is often subject to my experiments and trials.☺
This time I thought of trying tikkies out of it but instead of potatoes I took healthy moong dal to combine and the result was just awesum.
Quick cooking oats 1/2 cup + 1/4 cup extra for coating.
Yellow moong dal 2/3 cup
Onion 1 chopped
Carrot 1 grated
Garam masala 1/4 tsp
Red chilly powder 1/4 tsp
Coriander leaves few
Oil 3_4 tbsp
Milk 2_3 tbsp
Salt to taste
Dry roast Oats in a pan for 5 minutes, without getting it burnt.When it is cool make into a fine powder.
Cook the yellow moong dal till it becomes soft. (If you soak it for 10 minutes in water and cook in open flame it will be done in 10 minutes). Drain the excess water and allow this to cool.
Grind the moong dal coarsely without adding any water.
Put this to a wide bowl and add the oats powder, finely chopped onion, grated carrot,coriander leaves, red chilli powder,garam masala and salt.
Combine this nicely and make it into small tikkis.
Dip this in milk and roll in the dry oats (1/4 cup which is mentioned in the ingredient list).Coarsely grind this before using.
Place this on a tawa and cook it by adding little oil on both sides till it becomes golden brown.
Serve it hot with green chutney.
