Serve oats chillas plain or with any chutney of your choice or with tomato sauce.

I always serve this oats chilla with cilantro chutney. Serves prefer it with tomato ketchup.

You can also serve it with cilantro coconut chutney or tomato chutney.

It is not ideal, but I eat this chilla with a hot cup of coffee (or tea).

Tips & Notes

  • you can add many more veggies here like tomato, green pepper, green onions, and spinach. Just make sure to finely chop all of them before adding them to the recipe.
  • The texture of these chillas is so much better when the veggies are finely chopped.
  •  Leftover chillas can be wrapped in a paper towel and then in an aluminum foil (this prevents them from getting soggy) and refrigerated.
  • if you wish, you can make these more filling and protein-packed by pairing these with tofu scramble.
  • For small kids, skip the green chilies and red chili powder.
  • For rolled oats, grind in the same way. After making the batter, keep covered for 30 minutes.
