Method:

Mix the curd and the oats together in a mixing bowl. Keep it aside for 20-25mins. Now add water to it to make the batter little thicker. Ensure it has a runny consistency. Add the chopped vegetables, salt, and mix everything well. Heat the Panniyarakkal, grease it with oil and pour the batter carefully. Cover it with a lid. Cook for 5-7 minutes. Flip each of the appams, and cook on the other side. Gorge on yummy and healthy appam with coconut or green chutney.

Pour the batter with a ladle and gently spread it on the tawa. Cook the Cheela on medium flame until the top begins to look cooked. Flip your Cheela and cook the other side. Your tasty Cheela is now ready!

  1. Oats and Spinach Pancakes

Neither oats nor spinach make it to anyone’s ‘favorite foods’ list. And when you bring them together, it would sit in the corner of the dinner table – UNTOUCHED. But you whip them up into a pancake and it will turn into your favorite healthy breakfast.

Ingredients: 1 cup oats powder, ½ cup chopped spinach, 1-2 chopped green chilies, ½ chopped onion, ½ tsp ginger powder, ½ tsp red chili powder, 1 tsp cumin seeds, ¼ tsp turmeric powder, ¼ tsp asafoetida, Salt to taste, Water as required, 4-5 tsp vegetable oil.

Method:

Except for the vegetable oil, add all the ingredients to a large bowl. Pour water, mix them well to make a smooth batter. Let it rest for 10 minutes. Take a  Cast Iron Frypan, brush some oil and pour a ladleful of the batter on it. You will see bubbles forming on the pancake which means it is cooked well. Now flip the pancake and let the other side cook. Your Oats and Spinach Pancake is ready to be savored.
