Oats -Soy Chapatti

Oats is also high in fiber and is believed to helps reduce heart problems. Oats are a good source of many nutrients including vitamin E, zinc, selenium, copper, iron, manganese and magnesium. Oats are also a good source of protein(1). It is highly recommended for diabetes and cholesterol. Its tastes bland by itself which makes it great with gravies and sides. It is a very good substitute to rice.

  • Servings: 20 chapattis
  • Difficulty: Medium
  • Print

Ingredients (For a basic dough)

Water
A pinch of salt
Oil
2 cups Chapati flour
2 cups Oats ( finely powdered)
1/4 cup Soy powder

You can use the same dough to make pulkas (steamed chapatis), stuffed or plain parathas or anything else you want to make.

Method:

1. Mix all the above ingredients together to make a dough. Leave it at room temperature for  2-3 hrs.
2. For pulkas the dough should have a looser consistency.
3. Roll them even, maker sure there are no thick ends.

4. This makes them puff up nicely and cook evenly.

This a healthy way of including oats/soy in your daily diet with ease. I bet that no one will be able to taste anything different form a regular chapati.
There are lots of healthy chappathi flour options in the market today. I now use the multigrain atta for chapatis and it saves a lot of time 🙂
