Garbanzo Oats Vadai..

I got the idea of making these vadai after seeing Priya's post, Chickpea bread masal Vadai.  It came out pretty good. Here goes the recipe.

  1. Garbanzo Beans - 1 cup
  2. Instant oats - 1/4 cup
  3. Green chillies - 3 (acc to taste)
  4. Onion - 1 Medium sized (finely chopped)
  5. Coriander leaves - 2 tbsp (chopped)
  6. Salt to taste
  7. Ajwain -  a pinch
  8. Fennel seeds - 1/4 tsp
  9. Corn flour - 2 tsp
  10. Oil -  to deep fry
Soak garbanzo beans for four hours.  Pressure cook it. Let it cool. Grind it coarsely. Now add instant oats, salt, chopped onion, chillies, coriander leaves, corn flour, ajwain & fennel seeds and make it a soft dought. Sprinkle water if necessary.  Pre heat oil. Take required amount of dough to make one vada, flatten it and deep fry it till it becomes golden brown.

Vadais didn't come out well first. Then I added two teaspoons corn flour to the batter and it came out pretty good..

This recipe goes to T&T hosting by PJ, an event by Lakshmi

I replaced bread with oats and skipped garlic pods cos my kiddos are not excited about garlic.
