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.

Instant Oats – 500 gms / ½ kg

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
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..
