Oats Paniyaram Recipe | Easy Oats Paniyaram Using Idli Batter | Left over Idli Batter Recipe Ideas

Oats Paniyaram Recipe
Oats paniyaram is an Instant recipe that can be prepared using some left over idli/dosa batter. This oats paniyaram is a healthy, yummy and filling dish that can be served for breakfast, dinner or a perfect after school snack for kids. Here, I used store bought oat flour but you can make it home easily by grinding the rolled oats or quick cooking oats in blender and add it to the recipe. It is good to include oats and other whole grains in your daily meal. Whole grains are rich in fiber and low in calories and also they helps to reduce blood cholesterol and aids in good digestion. I use oats, millets, legumes and lentils in my daily cooking along with veggies.
Oats Paniyaram is one such healthy recipe with great taste. To make it even more tasty and crispy I also added some semolina/sooji/rava and rice flour to the batter. This oats paniyaram is not only my kids' favorite V also loved it a lot. If you don't have paniyam pan/Appam pan or Aebleskiver pan no worries, you can use your tawa/griddle or any wide pan and make it as thick pancake or Oats Oothappam. I tried that too, oats oothappam turned out soft and yummy. Now off to the recipe.
