Cooking with oats can be quite challenging when trying to incorporate it into Indian style recipes. But there are a few Indian oats recipes that are just a breeze to make like today’s Oats Roti. All you need to do is add some powdered oats to the regular atta aka wheat flour along with a bit of chick pea flour. Addition of finely minced mixed vegetables and Indian spices powders like cumin and coriander yield flavorful rotis that go well with yogurt and pickle.
I served the Oats roti with an Andhra style onion potato curry which made a delectable side. And, I must mention that a generous amount finely minced fresh coriander melds well with the spices and gives a wonderful herb-y flavor to the roti.

In a large bowl, mix all the above ingredients excluding oil. Add water few tablespoons at a time and make a soft dough. Keep aside for 10 minutes.
Prepare rotis by rolling out a large lemon sized amount of dough on a flour dusted surface.
Heat an iron or non-stick tawa. Once hot, place a roti and cook till it lightly turns color, filp over and cook the other side till light brown spots form.
Drizzle ghee or oil all over the roti and roast to a nice golden brown shade on both the sides. Remove onto a serving plate.
Serve warm with yogurt, pickle and curry of your choice.
You can use mixed vegetables of your choice like very finely minced cabbage, cauliflower, spinach etc
You can exclude vegetables and follow the above recipe. Add a pinch of garam masala and a tsp of kasuri methi (dried fenugreek) mix into the flour mixture before preparing the dough.
