Shallow Fried Suji Kachori With Vermicelli Stuffing

oats kachori
Here's another healthy take on kachoris. After pan fried suji kachoris, it's time to get a step further and increase the amount of oats in the recipe. As a taste enhancer, I have added roasted bengal gram, and the idea works fine.

The stuffing in this suji kachori is of vermicelli, instead of the typical boiled potatoes. Does the experiment disappoint?

Na, not at all.

This is the reason I am sharing the oats kachori with you!

Oats seem to have become my go-to grain/cereal when it comes to doing food experiments. Why not! This healthiest, fiber-rich cereal offers umpteen health benefits, from being a rich source of dietary fiber to being an appetite-suppressant that immediately creates a feeling of full.

Other oats benefits include:

  • boost immunity
  • reduce diabetes 2 risk
  • control appetite
  • improve bowel movement
  • lower bad cholesterol
  • improve insulin sensitivity
  • control blood pressure

Do you still need more oats benefits to make this healthy grain a part of your regular diet?

Anyway let's come back to the oats kachori recipe:

Ingredients for semolina cutlet  

oats suji kachori

1/2 cup- dry roasted oats (powdered)
1/2 cup- dry roasted suji (semolina)
2 tbsp- bengal gram powder/ chana dal powder/ roasted besan (optional)
3/4-1 cup- water (just enough to soak the powdered oats, suji, and bengal gram)
ajwain, jeera, salt, haldi
1 tsp- oil as moyen (1 tsp more for shallow frying)

Ingredients for filling
1/2 cup- roasted vermicelli
1 onion
coriander powder,
1 tomato
black pepper powder( kali mirch)
salt, haldi
1/2 tsp oil

Procedure for stuffing suji kachori


  1. Dry roast vermicelli.
  2. Boil vermicelli in water for 5 minutes with little salt and a drop of oil.
  3. Wash under cold water and keep aside on a sieve.
  4. Take 1/2 tsp oil in a pan.
  5. Add onion. Sprinkle salt over it.
  6. Fry chopped tomato.
  7. Add vermicelli, black pepper powder, haldi.
  8. Check for salt. Turn off the flame.
  9. Keep the stuffing aside.


Procedure for Oats Kachori
oats kachori vermicelli stuffing


  1. Dry roast oats and powder them. I usually powder oats first and roast them later. 
  2. Dry roast suji. Keep aside.
  3. Grind raosted bengal gram to powder. If you are using chana dal, powder it and then dry roast it. Else, you can use besan. Dry roast besan so that the raw smell goes. Or you can skip this step altogether.
  4. Mix suji, oats powder, and roasted bengal gram powder/ besan/chana dal powder.
  5. Add salt, ajwain, jeera, and haldi.
  6. Add oil.
  7. Mix with hands.
  8. Now take water in a pan and pour this mixture into the water.
  9. Switch on the flame.
  10. Keep it on medium heat.
  11. Keep stirring until everything comes together as a mass in the center.
  12. Next switch off the flame.
  13. Add some coriander leaves to the dough.
  14. Knead little with hands. Make sure you do not burn your hands.
  15. Make big balls of the dough and flatten them with your palm.
  16. Add stuffing inside the flattened chapatis.
  17. Close all ends. In my case, two kachoris broke open, as I stuffed them too much.
  18. Take 1 tsp oil in a pan.
  19. Place each kachori at a distance. Turn the heat to medium. Cover & cook.
  20. Keep changing sides intermittently until done.
  21. It may take you good amount of time to shallow fry these oats kachoris, but the end result is worth all efforts.
  22. Enjoy!

Homemade Edible Powders: Beetroot, Onion, Garlic, Ginger, Lemon, Orange, Sambar, Kurma, Garam Masala

The title says it all. This post is all about edible powders that can be used as flavoring agents, natural color, and to make food visually attractive. What more do we need? Though I am not too much in favor of drying food and storing the same, this is the best option for those days when these veggies are out of season. During the season, please make it a point to enjoy these fresh and flavorful. There's nothing better and healthier than fresh produce, right?

Okay so the idea to make these powders popped up in my mind as I had too many beetroots at home. When nobody was too eager to have them, the best way to still consume these beauties was to sundry them to powder. I did exactly that.





Then I wondered if I can sundry lemon peels into powder just like we do to orange peels. I have been using orange peels as a face pack thus far. But since the baking bug has bitten me badly, I plan to use it as an edible powder for cakes and cookies too. Fingers crossed for the results though, sin…

The Best Multigrain Digestives: An Airfryer Recipe

The best multigrain digestives? I know I have shared too many digestives recipes but this one is my best. To be frank, I experiment, relish, share, and post the same for you all and then forget all about it because it's time to experiment again with new ingredients. So today it was another kind of digestives - relished by one and all. My cookie making spree has turned my cookie hater hubby into someone who has started to munch on these baked beauties.



Before sharing the simple cookie recipe, it is time to go through oats benefits. You are already aware of my love for oats. One reason you rarely find my recipes without this fibrous cereal grain. Did you go through the fiber benefits?











Go to my fiber benefits post to get deeper insight into the need for including fiber in your diet.



Ingredients
1 cup- oat flour
3/4 cup- whole wheat
1/4 cup- bran
1/4cup- ragi
2 tbsp- roasted quinoa powdered (roasted quinoa adds a nutty flavor to the recipe - substitute with almond powder if you do not h…

Diabetic Diet Cake With Watermelon: A Vegan Recipe

While people are still debating whether watermelon is a diabetes-friendly fruit, I still stick to my notion that diabetics can have this fruit for its sheer hydration effect. Not only this, the fruit is loaded with minerals, nutrients, and antioxidants that make it a health-friendly food. However, diabetics with kidney issues should avoid watermelon. Anyway, let's come back to the watermelon cake recipe for diabetics. Well, this cake uses another fruit - banana- which even I do not think is diabetes-friendly. But I went ahead with including a banana for this recipe merely to keep the fat content low. I hope you all know that a banana is a good substitute for an egg for an eggless cake recipe.

Since an egg is also loaded with saturated fat, diabetics should avoid it at any cost. So I had to choose between an egg and a banana for this diabetes-friendly cake, and ended up voting for this humble fruit - which is one of my favorites too. Yes!

When you think of a vegan diabetes-friendl…
