Method:

  1. Soak the channa dal in water for an hour. Heat a pan and add the cooking oats and dry roast it for couple of minutes or till you get a nice aroma and the color changes slightly. Take the roasted oats and keep it aside

  2. In the same pan, add sooji and dry roast till you get a nice aroma. Take roasted oats and sooji to the mixer

  3. Grind the oats and sooji to a coarse powder. Take the ground oats-sooji powder in a mixing bowl. To that add rice flour and salt

  4. Add sour curd and mix well. We need to add enough water to get a batter consistency. Keep this aside for 10 minutes. Meanwhile lets prepare the seasoning. Heat the pan and add a teaspoon of oil and when the oil is hot, add mustard seeds. When the mustard seeds starts to sputter, add split urid dal, chopped green chillies and curry leaves and saute all of them for couple of minutes. 

  5. Add the seasoned ingredients and soaked channa dal to the prepared batter. Finally add the cooking soda and you can see bubbles coming up in the batter. Gently mix once. You can feel the batter getting softer and thinner in consistency after adding cooking soda. But we need to add the cooking soda just before frying the paniyaram. Keep the paniyaram mould in flame. Add 1/2 teaspoon of oil in each mould. When the paniyaram mould is piping hot, keep the flame low and add the oats paniyaram batter to each hole until it fills 3/4 of the hole. Let it cook on one side. 

  6. Gently flip it over and cook it on the other side. When the paniyaram is cooked and becomes golden brown, remove each paniyaram from flame. Repeat the same for rest of the batter. 

  7. The yummy and tasty Instant Oats Paniyaram is now ready to serve!

    1. Hi, soaked channa dal is only for additional taste. we can add channa dal with the other seasoned ingredients without soaking too,

    2. You could also soak the channa dal quickly, but putting it in a thermos with hot water for 10 minutes. By the time you are done dry roasting the dry ingredients it will be ready.

    1. You can use rice instead of rawa. Or you can also use idli dosa batter and mix with oats powder.
