Oats Masala Paratha
Healthy paratha recipe made with oats and Indian spices

Have you ever tried making paratha with oats? Paratha is a Indian flat bread made in every household. We make many different kinds of parathas like aloo paratha, pudina paratha, gobi paratha, methi paratha etc. So this time I decided to make the parathas even more healthier by adding oats. 

Oats parathas are stuffed with oats and lots of Indian spices. I have also added some methi (fenugreek) leaves and coriander leaves to give nice flavors to the parathas.

Oats are very rich in fiber and also absorb extra cholesterol from your body. Due its health benefits Indians have started using oats in a lot of dishes like oats upma, oats sheera, oats idli, oats paratha etc. By just giving a little thought you can customize you traditional recipes to use oats and make an all new dish.  Enjoy every bite of this healthier and flavorful paratha with some masala chai for breakfast and it will be a perfect start to your morning

I have used quick cooking rolled oats for this recipe. Quick cooking oats as the name suggests are easy to cook. Many have asked me so just clarifying these are not instant oats. There is a lot of difference between instant oats and quick cooking oats. 


So lets proceed step by step for making oats masala paratha


In a wide bowl sieve wheat flour, add a little oil and salt. Knead it to a soft dough by adding water as required. Leave it aside to rest for 20 minutes

Dry roast the oats in a skillet, it will take about 5-7 minutes

Now transfer the roasted oats in a bowl. Add some chopped onions, coriander leaves and methi leaves

Now add turmeric powder, red chilli powder, garam masala and salt

Add 4-5 tablespoon water and mix well. Oats masala stuffing is ready for parathas. In this stuffing you can add green chilli and ginger paste also

Take a portion of a dough

Roll it into a flat bread by dipping it in dry wheat flour as required

Now place the mixture in between of the paratha

Slowly bring all the edges together and close the pouch. Press the pouch gently to make it a little flat

Again dip it in dry wheat flour as required and roll it into flat bread

Heat a skillet/tawa and roast the paratha. You can use oil, ghee or butter as you like

Flip the paratha and roast it on both the sides till golden brown in color 

Oats Masala Paratha is ready. Top with some butter and serve hot with masala chai
