  1. In a pan over medium heat dry roast the oats for 2-3 minutes or until aromatic.

Recipe Notes

  • I like to dry roast the oats but you can completely skip this step if needed.
  • Add any veggies of your choice like grated carrots.
  • Do not skip gram flour in this recipe. It not only binds all the ingredients but also gives this oats chilla a very moist texture.
  • If you are using rolled oats then grind them in a mixer grinder to form a coarse powder before using.

    May I ask is there a gluten free substitute for graham flour, that you would suggest that will give the same result? Thanks for the great recipe! Caroline

    Hi Aarti, thanks so much for responding! Great I am going to try it! I will have to use something gluten free for the semolina. Amaranth or buckwheat? What is the purpose of the semolina in this recipe? Binding, thickening? I’m sure either would wok just as well! Thanks again. Cheers, Caroline
