Oats Masala Roti

Oats, this wholegrain is my all time favourite and my kids do love this fibre rich grains. Obviously my pantry will always have this healthy ingredient. Though i have already posted couple of dishes with this healthy oats, i have still few dishes to cook and share with you all. One of my draft post was this healthy oats masala roti, this roti is prepared with both whole wheat flour and oats, usually grounded rolled oats are added to the whole wheat flour to make the dough. My today's recipe is quite different and definitely a healthy dish to serve everybody at home. Yes a simple stuffing prepared with rolled oats and chopped onions is needed to prepare this excellent Oats Masala Roti.

Oats Masala Roti
When served along with a spicy side dish, one can enjoy this healthy oats masala roti without any guilt. This rotis makes a super filling breakfast or brunch and when served warm even kids can enjoy thoroughly without any side dish as the stuffing went in is quite enough to have this roti just like that. The crunchiness of the onions gives an excellent texture to this roti, i just prepared the stuffing with onions, if you want to make this rotis more healthy, you can also add grated carrots, cooked mashed potatoes etc depending upon your wish. This roti is definitely a diabetic friendly dish and a wholesome meal as well. Am posting this dish for this week's blogging marathon as am running this week's theme with Kid's delight - Brunch ideas for kids.Sending to Kid's Delight - Brunch Ideas for Kids hosted by Priya Srinivasan, an event by Srivalli
