Oats Cutlet? Oats Patty?

                No, we haven’t named it right yet. image however, one morning we tried this for a breakfast. It turned out great and filling too.

original oats – 1cup
mustard seeds – half teaspoon (not mandatory)
peanuts – one tablespoon (not mandatory)
Jeera – one teaspoon (not mandatory)
green chilies – 2 (chop it to size you like)
onions (if required) – 2 tablespoons (chopped)
red chili powder – 1 teaspoon
salt – for your taste (i mean, take a bit taste and put it away) 🙂
olive oil – 1 or 2 tablespoons

Heat a skillet / vessel on a stove with 1 tablespoon of olive oil in it. Add some mustard seeds and for few minutes. follow the usual tadka process. add jeera and peanuts along. after 2 to 3 minutes with peanuts add the chopped green chilies and chopped onions. let the onion fry in oil for most part. add salt according to your taste as mentioned above

now, add one cup of oats and mix well. you may have to sprinkle some water to it can be mixed well for about 8 to 10 minutes, till you see the oats getting softened. and turn off the stove.

use a cookie cutter or a lid of a metal box/bottle would help too. fill the prepared oats mix into the template and drop it to a microwave safe or an oven safe tray (as appropriate).

to options to bake:
either you may use the Microwave or the conventional oven. We used microwave this time. place the tray in microwave oven for about 2 to 4 minutes. keep a watch along the way so it doesn’t get too hard and not get charred.

serve hot / warm with ketchup. I don’t eat Ketchup and the plate in this picture doesn’t show it.
