Oats are a rich source of soluble fibre'beta-glucan', which is a potent cholesterol-lowering agent.

Here the flour used is wheat flour which is high in fiber count than refined flour, to which onions have been added.

These are also said to be one of the best friend of your heart, as they promote production of HDL (good cholesterol) and lower total cholesterol in the body.

We suggest the use of peanut oil to cook these rotis, as the MUFA content in this oil helps to reduce inflammation in the arteries and thus protect the heart.

Serve these rotis immediately to enjoy their texture. For a really healthy treat pair the Oats Roti with fresh Low Fat Curds , a cholesterol-friendly subzi like Carrot Methi ki Subzi or healthy Kanch Moong Dal .

Like Oats Roti

  1. Oats Roti. Oats can be perked up with an assortment of ingredients to make variations of the oats roti. Here are some of my favorite oats roti recipes :  

To prepare the Oats Roti

  1. To prepare the Oats Roti dough, in a deep bowl, take whole wheat flour. Wheat is a staple grain in Indian households and widely used to make various Indian flatbread recipes.
  2. Add the quick cooking rolled oats. Alternatively, you can even grind the oats in a mixer jar to form oats flour and then add. Oats is high in fiber and therefore helps in lowering cholesterol levels. To know more nutritional benefits of oats, read our article
  3. Next add finely chopped onions. It is very important to chop them nicely or else the oats roti might tear while rolling.
  4. Add the green chillies. You can substitute it with red chilli powder.
  5. Add the coriander.
  6. Add the salt. You can skip the other ingredients and make a plain oats roti with wheat flour, oats, salt and oil too.
  7. Add 1 tsp of peanut oil. Oil not only binds together all the ingredients but also, helps in keeping the oats roti soft.
  8. Mix together all the ingredients.
  9. Gradually 2 tbsp of water, which would help in binding the dough.
  10. Using approx. ½ cup of water, try to form dough for the Oats Roti. The amount of water required to form soft dough may vary depending on the quality of flour. Knead into a soft dough smooth just like the chapati dough.
  11. Cover with a lid and keep aside for 15 to 20 minutes.
  12. Divide the dough into 10 equal portions.
  13. Sprinkle a little flour on the rolling surface.
  14. Take a portion of the dough and flatten it.
  15. Roll out each portion of Oats Roti into a 125 mm. (5") diameter circle using a little whole wheat flour for rolling. Do it gently as it tends to tear easily due to the addition of onions and whole oats.
  16. Heat a non-stick tava (griddle) and place the Oats Roti on it. Cook the roti till small bubbles appear on the top surface.
  17. Flip and using ½ tsp of peanut oil, cook till Oats Roti turns golden brown in colour from both the sides.
  18. Serve the Oats Roti immediately with any subzi of your choice.

Oats Roti for weight loss

  1. Oats Roti for weight loss. Oats abound in fiber – Beta-Glucagon, which tend to keep you full for a longer time. Thus this Oats Roti made with oats and wheat flour, another fiber rich ingredient, is a healthy substitute to maida based naan and roti. Serve it with a Mixed Veggie Raita or Spinach Raita to toss in more fiber and move a step ahead towards your weight loss goals. Loved this Oats Roti… Want to try another recipe with Oats?
