Oats Kara Kolukattai / Steamed Oats Dumplings – Healthy Recipe / Diabetic Recipes

I got a mail from one of my friend as well as viewer named Mubashira. She told me that her dad had a bypass surgery and he is suffering from diabetics. So she asked me to post some diabetic recipes which she can make for her dad. This recipe is for her.I am planning to post many more diabetic recipe in the coming days as well. Mubashira we pray that you father get well soon:)

This is really a tasty and extremely healthy dish which you could ever make with oats..This is great for people who are in diet because they often get bored by eating the same thing like oats porridge and roti again and again. You could add lots of veggies in this like carrot, cabbage and many more as per your taste.

Oats Kolukattai can be served for breakfast, lunch or dinner..It is a quite filling meal. This is perfect to put in tiffin box for kids along with some ketchup on side. I bet you they will surely love it.

If you ever want me to post any of your favorite recipe you can contact me using this page..So here you go to the step by step recipe with pictures.


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
