This simple snack is rich in fiber because of oats and rich in protein because of moong dal. Oil used is very less. We can also make this a part of our party menu.
- Moong Dal 1/4 Cup
- Oats 3/4 Cup
- Onion 1
- Carrot 1
- Yogurt 1 tablespoon
- Garam Masala 1/2 teaspoon
- Red Chilli Powder 1/2 teaspoon
- Salt To Taste
- Chopped Coriander Leaves 1 tablespoon
- Oil 2 tablespoon
1. Wash and Soak the moong dal in water for 30 minutes. Pressure cook the dal by adding 1/2 cup of water and then coarsely mash the dal and keep it ready
2. Wash and peel the carrot and grate it. Chop the onions finely and keep it ready. Take a pan and add oats to it. Dry roast the oats till we get a nice aroma and the oats turn slightly brown color. Remove the roasted oats and allow it to cool off
3. Grind it in a mixer to a nice powder and take 1 tablespoon of ground oats powder aside for coating tikkis. Take a mixing bowl add mashed dal, remaining oats powder, grated carrot and onion.
Also, add garam masala, red chilli powder, salt and chopped coriander. Mix all the ingredients and finally add curd and mix well and make it like a dough
4. Take a lemon size ball out of the dough and make small Cutlet. Coat each Cutlet with oats powder.
5. Heat a flat bottom pan or tawa and grease it with oil. Add 4-5 coated oats tikkis and apply little oil and keep the flame low and allow the tikkis to fry evenly. Except for moong dal, rest of ingredients are raw and hence we need to cook them in low flame. Flip the cooked tikkis to cook on other side.
Remove the cutlets from flame and serve with green chutney!
