Oats Vadai Recipe
Oats Vadai Recipe is the first oats recipe I have tasted. I used to make porridge everyday for my hubby, but I never took an attempt to taste it. When it was raining last evening, we felt like having something hot and crispy. I quickly browsed for some easy recipes and came across this instant oats vada.So immediately gave it a try with some customizations. Unlike the usual vadas which demands for soaking the dhal and grinding, this vada can be prepared in just 15 minutes. This vada turns out to be very crispy and tasty.Here is the recipe for yummy vada.

  4. Looks yummy. But did you grind the oats in step 1

    1. Thanks for dropping in your comments. No I did not grind the oats. If you soak it in water for 10 - 15 minutes, it becomes soft and mushy. Make sure you add water just enough to wet the oats.
