Oats Kozhukattai Recipe

My Notes

  • Adjust water according to the consistency, the consistency should be sticky not brittle. If its too dry then it will not hold shape.Also water quantity should be little lesser than oats, this way you get the right consistency without making it mushy.
  • Once done the kozhukattais will look shiny, this way you can identify when it gets done.
  • You can even powder oats to a coarse mixture and make kozhukattais.
  • Add coconut and onion for extra crunch.You can even add any vegetables of your choice.

  12. Hi sharmi

    Had been wondering wat to make out of oats other than the usual porridge. My husband is bored of it now and me too. If by chance I happen to utter the word porridge, my husbands fury translates to death sentence.

    This sure is the next thing with oats.
    Thank you so much sharmi :)
