Here is another Healthy oats chilla recipe that takes less than 30 minutes to make. so quick and easy enough for morning breakfast. This cheela is soft and has the taste of oats in it, unlike the regular Besan chilla. they taste good. You can even pack these in the tiffin box.

I make this variation of cheela at times with oats flour. For the oats flour, just grind quick cooking oats or oatmeal in a mixer-grinder and rest of the recipe is the way I make besan chilla.

Few more Oats recipes already posted in the blog are Oats upma, Oats dosa, Oats idli and Oats uttapam recipe.

These oats chillas can be served plain or with a side of chutney. You can also have with green chutney or coconut chutney. Even sweet tamarind chutney or a tomato ketchup also goes very well.

  • Gently with the back of the ladle, begin to spread the batter. Spread lightly and gently so that the cheela does not break.
  • On a low to medium flame cook the oats cheela till the top begins to look cooked.
