1 Cup Oats

1½ Cup Water
1½ Cup Milk

2 Tablespoons Honey
Handful chopped nuts and fruits (Dates, Almonds,Cashew nuts, Walnuts and Raisins)
1 Teaspoon Chia Seeds


Method

In a saucepan , combine water and  milk,  bring to boil on  medium low flame
then add the oats and give it a quick stir,
Now add the honey and  chia seeds mix in well, keep stirring for 3 - 4 minutes  or till the porridge thickens a little.
Keep stirring in so that it is not burnt at the bottom.
When the oats is  cooked, turn off flame and transfer the contents to a serving bowl,
 Drizzle a little honey
The porridge will further thicken as it starts to cool , so adjust your water and milk quantities accordingly.
Here is the goodness of fruits
Sprinkle all the chopped nuts and fruits on top.  
Enjoy  this healthy breakfast!!
My Notes
Can use any type of oats.
Feel free to add or skip the nuts.
Vegans or lactose intolerant people can use  almond milk,  soy milk or coconut milk instead.

Oats & Split Green Moong Chillas/Pancakes#Foodieextravaganza

A Happy and Prosperous New Year to all my friends.
The month of December was only parties, weddings etc..
enjoyed food and drinks to the hilt. Now it's  time to start a healthy life style, hope I can maintain this. 

Starting 2019 with a healthy breakfast dish for Foodie Extravaganza. Since the theme for this month is Oatmeal, our host is Wendy Klik . Made these fabulous, healthy pancakes that are high in protein, low in calories and filling.
.
Ingredients

1 Cup Split Green Moong Dal
1 Cup Oats
3 Big Cloves Garlic
2 Green Chillies
½ Teaspoon Grated Ginger
1/3 Cup Rice Flour - * see notes
Salt to taste
Water as required

For garnishing

Grated Cheese or Cottage Cheese - optional
Chutney or Sauce for Serving
Method 

Wash and soak the split moong dal overnight or for at least 4 hours. 
Drain the water and then grind it with rest of the ingredients using water just necessary to make a coarse paste. 
This batter should be thicker than a pancake batter.
 Heat a pancake pan and brush it with oil, take a ladle full of batter spread it into a thin chilla / pancake. Drizzle little oil on it. 
When it cooks it one side then flip it and cook for a minute ( this is optional). 
Fold it into a triangle and serve with chutney or sauce . Garnish with grated cheese.
These were fabulous, healthy and are high in protein.
My Notes
If you do not have rice flour at hand then soak 2 tablespoons heaped of rice grains along with the dal.
Do not brush too much of oil on to pan or else you will not be able to spread the batter.
