Benefit of Oats

Oats are considered to be the healthiest grain these days. This is gluten-free and a great source of many minerals, antioxidants, vitamins and rich in fiber.Oats groats are the most intact and whole form of oats which takes a longer time to cook. Due to this reason, it is preferred as rolled, crushed or steel cut oats form. This is commonly used in breakfast as overnight soaked oats recipes. But can also be used in baking cookies, muffins, cakes, flatbreads and much more.

Though sometimes oats are grown in the same field as wheat or barley. There are some chances that these crops contaminate oats with gluten. So while consuming oats, it is a caution for those who are gluten intolerance. Read more about Oats at 9 Health Benefits of Eating Oats and Oatmeal.

Since the time I started my weight loss journey, I always look for healthy eating options. The good part is if your family too becomes a part of it, it feels so great and easy to deal with. My father always made sure we are not eating refined flour stuff, he cooked all savory snacks with whole wheat flour. Yes, you read it right :). My father used to make snacks for us. I continued this tradition and make my cakes and snacks with whole wheat flour.

Last 6-7 months I am trying my hands on finger millet flour and oats flour. These mathri I made with oats flour, which is healthy, fibrous and protein rich. Do check it now how I made healthy oats and flaxseeds mathri.

Method

I used rolled oats to make these. Grind them to make smooth powder and then use it. Grind flax seeds too beforehand.

In a mixing bowl mix all the ingredients well. Use water to make a dough. It should not be soft, consistency should be like poori/puri dough.

Now using this dough make small 1.5″ size small balls. This much dough will yield into 30 around mathris. Take 1-2 black pepper seed on the flat surface, crush it with rolling pin and now place one small ball on top of it. Roll it over to make 2″ 2.5″ diameter circle. With the help of fork put holes in both sides.  Poking holes prevent them puffing up while deep frying.

Do the same procedure with the rest of the balls.

 

Heat oil in a kadhai/pan and put these rolled circles into it. Keep turning them to avoid burning. The flame should be between high and medium, change it time to time. Fry till they get a golden color.

Oats flaxseeds mathris are ready to serve. Let them cool completely and store in airtight jar. It is my teatime snack, I love to have it with green tea. With mix pickle, it tastes heavenly.Oats flaxseeds mathri are a new healthy version of making traditional mathri/flat deep fried flatbread.  Both the ingredients are super nutrient with loads of health benefits.

  1. Brilliant idea to include oats and flax in one swoop. I make regular roti with wheat flour + oat bran and so I am sure these Oat mathri would be just as interesting. Have you tried baking these?

  2. That’s one good way to get hubby to have his oats and fried snack all in one. I’ve not used oatmeal flour in mathris as yet but your mathris are surely tempting me to do so. Thanks for sharing a great snack recipe.
