I have been unknowingly adding a lot of Oats recipes like Dates and Oats Cake , Oats and Mixed dal dosa, Instant Oats Idli and now this Masala Oats Paratha.

Some years back my friend had shared this recipe of Masala Oats Paratha. I had tried it many times and loved it too but somehow forgot it later as we usually have rice.

Yesterday I remembered it and made just few of them for dinner to see if the kids will like the change in taste. I was so happy when my daughter said “Amma, what is this? This is so yummy. Give me more. Can’t stop eating it.” And finally ate three of them instead of one that she usually eats. Even though I should not share this for the fear of evil eye, can’t resist as it made me so happy and out of the world. I am sure all mothers can understand how I feel.

Here’s sharing the recipe. Hope your family loves it too.


Ingredients: { Makes around 8 Parathas}

For the outer dough:

3 Cups Whole wheat flour/ Atta

Salt to taste

Water as required to knead the dough

For the inner filling:

2 Cups Instant Oats

1/2 Cup Curd/ Yogurt

3 green chillies, finely chopped

A small piece of ginger, minced

3 garlic cloves, minced (optional)

Few curry leaves, finely chopped

2 Tbsp of finely chopped Coriander leaves

2 tsp Garam masala powder

1 tsp Red chilli powder

Salt to taste

Oil or ghee to cook the parathas

Step by step recipe:

1. Take wheat flour and salt in a bowl and add water. Knead to form a smooth dough. Keep aside.

2. Now take instant oats in another bowl and add curd one spoon at a time and keep mixing till it looks like one wet mixture. I required 1/2 Cup curd for 2 Cups Oats.

This should be the consistency of the mixture. It should be thick.

3. Now add ginger, garlic, green chillies, curry leaves, coriander leaves, garam masala powder, red chilli powder and salt.

4. Mix well and divide into equal portions.

5. Now divide the wheat dough also into equal number of balls. Take one and roll a little. Place one oats portion inside it.

6. Close and seal the edges.

7. Using dry flour, roll into a big circle like you roll regular parathas.

8. Now place it on a hot tava and cook both sides using ghee or oil.

9. Enjoy it hot with curd or any side dish. We love it with Amma’s tomato chutney.


* Don’t add a lot of curd than required or you will have difficulty filling it if it is more wet.

* The masalas and spices are to taste. I sometimes skip garlic or curry leaves if I don’t have. It’s all upto how your family loves it.

* I take out the green chilly before feeding each bite to my kids. You could skip it from their mixture itself if needed.
