Oats Kuzhakkattai


Instant Oats –  500 gms / ½  kg
Beans-1 cup finely chopped
Coconut- ½ cup shredded ( Optional, if cooking for diabetic patients skip this)
Urad dal / Ulundu-1 tsp
Mustard seeds / Kaduku-1 tsp
Dry Red Chilli – 2 cut into small pieces
Curry leaves -1 spring
Water-500 ml / ½ liter
Oil-1 tsp
Salt to taste


Take oats in a dry pan and roast it for 5 mins till you get nice aroma..Allow this to cool a bit..Take it in a blender and powder it coarsely. Set this aside for a moment.

Now heat oil in a kadai and add mustard and urad dal. Add dry red chilli and curry leaves and mix well.

Add beans and coconut in this and sauté for 3 mins. Pour in 500 ml of water and add salt to this.

Bring this to boil and add in oats slowly while stiring constantly.

When everything is mixed well. Cover it with a lid and let it cook on a very low flame for 5-8 mins.

Now allow this mixture to cool down and form small balls out of it.

Put those dumplings in a oiled steamer basket ( I used my idli stand) and steam it for 10 mins.

Remove and serve it with chutney or as it is..
