  1. Sprinkle some warm water and salt on the oats. Mix it and let it soak for 5 minutes.
  2. Heat oil in a pan and splutter the mustard seeds.
  3. Fry the urad dal till golden brown. Next add the chopped onions, green chillies and curry leaves and saute.
  4. Add the soaked oats to this. Add some grated coconut and mix everything together.
  5. Add more salt and sprinkle some more water if required. Cook it for just couple of minutes and switch off. (NOTE: The mixture should be sticky and moist enough to be able to form balls but not soggy.)

  • You can make sweet version by adding jaggery instead of the seasoning.
  • You can also add some pressed rice (aval) along with the oats and make it.

I have made it without coconut as a don't prefer sweet taste. It was too delicious. Thank you so much for the recipe.

I tried it and it came out well. I added roasted almonds, sauté corn, raisins to add crunch and sweetness to it. A very healthy recipe indeed!
