Oats Handvo - A Gujarati Low Calorie Snack

oats handvo
This post is inspired by Ritu Mendiratta's oats handvo. I have been planning to make this savory snack for quite some time but could never try my hands at it.When Ritu posted her recipe, it instantly gave me the fillip to give this Gujarati snack a try. Though traditionally it is made using lentils and rice, we have chosen oats and semolina for the recipe.

This makes a delectable, savory snack that I would love to relish again as a healthy breakfast or evening snack.

Ingredients
1/2 cup- oat meal (powder)
1/2 cup- suji (unroasted - you may roast it)
3 tbsp- besan (optional - I included)
1/2 cup- curd
salt, red chilly powder, mustard seeds,
chana dal- 1/2 tsp
urad dal- 1/2 tsp
Baking soda- 1 fat pinch
curry leaves- a few
veggies of your choice- I included 1 carrot, 1 capsicum, handful of peas, green chilly
sesame seeds - 1 tsp
Oil- 1 tbsp
hing- pinch
roasted flax powder (alsi)- 1 tsp (optional)
Water- little (to make thick idli type batter)
