100% Oats Roti

Chapati is a classic Indian bread served with a variety of vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes for a hearty meal. Generally made with refined or whole wheat flour, chapatis are a must in every North Indian household for a satisfying meal. Oats Chapati is a wonderfully unique twist to this great accompaniment, which utilizes the goodness of oats to make this staple food item healthy.

Healthy Oatmeal Flatbread

Earlier I shared how to make homemade oats flour with quick-cooking oats. I used oat flour in baking, dosa, in making sabzi or curry as well. Then why not Chapati or Roti? Yes, you can make super healthy chapati or even paratha with oats flour. 

Old Fashioned Oats Flour and Quick Cooking Oats Flour

I used two types of oats – Old Fashioned Oats and Quick Cooking OatsOld fashioned oats have a coarser, chewier texture and nuttier flavor than rolled or quick oats. They also take longer to prepare, with average cooking times varying 15–30 minutes. Whereas, Quick oats or quick-cooking oats are rolled oats that go through further processing to decrease cooking time. They’re partially cooked by steaming and then rolled even thinner than old-fashioned oats. They cook within a few minutes, have a mild flavor and soft, mushy texture.

Only the thing is, you have to mix oat flour with hot water to make a smooth & non-sticky dough. Once the dough is prepared, rest this for 5 mins and then rolled out into a thin roti. Since oats are gluten-free, so it is a bit difficult to make a perfectly round shape. So to get a perfect shape roti, just press a lid or any round sharp edge container over the rolled rotis & remove the extra dough. Then roast on both sides and enjoy delicious roti.

Oat flour is a nutritious, unrefined flour made from just one whole ingredient – Rolled Oats. It’s a great baking flour for gluten-free and vegan recipes. It has a fairly neutral taste and absorbs flavors well.

Wholesome Chapati

Ingredients :
Quick-cooking oats flour – 1/2 cup
Old fashioned oats flour – 1/2 cup
Water – 1 cup
Oil – 1/2 tsp
A pinch of salt

Method :

Heat 1 cup of water in a pan with oil and salt. Once the water starts boiling switch off the flame. Combine the oat flour and water. Mix thoroughly with a spoon. Transfer dough in a bowl. Let it rest for 15 minutes (covered).

After 15 minutes knead the dough for 2- 3 minutes. Heat the nonstick pan/skillet on medium-high flame.

Make a small lemon size ball and dust some oats flour over a rolling board.

Place the oats dough and roll out to a thin roti as possible.

Now place a lid over the rolled roti to make a perfect shape and remove the extra dough ( I used pressure cooker stand).

This is because oats are gluten-free and it is difficult to get a perfect shape.

Place the roti on a hot pan, cook both sides till done. Serve super healthy roti with your favorite sabzi.
