Instant Vegetable-Oats Adai

Another quick, instant & healthy breakfast idea for the busy mornings! Loaded with fiber-rich oats and vegetables, couple of adai can go a long way between two meals.

Check out my other "Oats adai" recipe here which requires atleast a couple of hours of planning & prep ahead, but this recipe of adai is "super" instant and the batter can be put together in less than 20 mins, which is a BIG plus! Also, adai prepared in the traditional way can get very heavy because of the rice & channa dal in it. But, this instant adai is very light and works pretty well for breakfast too!

Basic Info
Complexity - Medium
Prep time - 20 mins
Cook time - 20 mins
Serves - 8 - 10 adai

Oats - 2 cups
Besan - 1/2 cup
Rice flour - 1/2 cup
Green Chillies - 1 (finely chopped)
Ginger - 1 inch (grated)
Carrot - 1 (grated)
Bell pepper - 1/4 (finely chopped)
Cabbage - 1/2 cup (shredded)
Coriander leaves - a bunch (finely chopped)
Curry leaves - 1 sprig (finely chopped)
Salt - to taste

Use a food processor/mixie and powder the oats.

Mix powdered oats, rice flour, besan, chopped vegetables, salt, grated ginger, finely chopped coriander leaves and curry leaves in a bowl. Add just enough water until it forms a slightly thick batter.

Heat a griddle and pour a ladle full of batter and spread slightly from the center to outwards. Add a tsp of oil around the adai and cook both the sides on medium heat.

Quick & healthy vegetable oats adai is ready to be served. Serve hot with pickle or chutney of your choice.

- You can also add finely chopped onion (1 no) to the batter.
