Oats!! Oats!! and More Oats:)
Oats are not only tastes delicious, it's good for your heart. Research conducted over the past 40 years shows that eating 3g of soluble fiber daily from oatmeal, in a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease. Oatmeal can help lower your total cholesterol, and LDL ("bad") cholesterol, and that can help keep your arteries clean and healthy.More info here.
Here are wonderful tasting nutritious Parathas for breakfast or for anytime you will love .With Pickle or Yogurt,they are absolutely delicious.You can make them day before and heat in the morning and they freeze well too.
How to make them:Makes 8 Parathas.
Measure 1 cup of Quaker old fashioned Oats and grind them in a blender to get a smooth powder.
Add this Oatmeal powder to 2 cups of wheat flour/Atta along with 1 large finely minced onions,2 tsp ginger grated,1/2 cup grated Carrots,1/4 cup Methi leaves or 2 tbsp Kasuri Methi,salt, 1/2 tsp chill flakes or powder or minced green chillies,1/4 tsp Turmeric, 1 tsp Coriander seeds powder,1 tsp cumin seeds powder,1 tsp Mango powder,2 tbsp Cilantro,1 tbsp minced Mint leaves,1/2 tsp Garam Masala.
Mix all these well to a stiff dough without water at first.Onions tend to leave water when mixed with salt,so water should be added only if necessary.Divide the dough into 8 pieces,roll out to about 6" circles.Cook on the griddle until golden specks appear both sides with little Canola oil bushed on them.Serve with any pickle you have or with little yogurt for a great breakfast.
Tasty Amba Haldi pickle:
When I was in Nashville on vacation,I found this Fresh Turmeric pickle jar in a Indian grocery store.I have never eaten fresh Turmeric,so I bought just one jar to try. I loved it so much that I went back again just to buy 2 more jars of the same.It tastes fabulous!:))
