In a pan, roast oats until slightly brown. Powder the oats in a grinder or a blender and put this powder into a bowl.
Add the remaining ingredients to the oat powder
Now start by adding a little water and keep mixing the ingredients in the bowl. Make a smooth yet runny batter
Now heat the pan or skillet on medium heat. Once hot, drizzle a teaspoon of oil into the pan, add the batter and spread it evenly forming a round shape.
Making sure it is not too thick, let the chilla cook. Be sure to cook on medium heat, so it cooks evenly throughout.
Once the bottom is cooked, drizzle some more oil on the chilla’s top and flip it using a spatula
Once both the sides are cooked, remove the oats chilla off the gas. Repeat the same process using the rest of the batter
Protein-Rich: One serving of oatmeal has around 5g of protein, which makes it pretty protein rich for the amount of calories you’re consuming.
Helps in Preventing and Treating Diabetes: Oatmeal is a good complex carb, it is able to slow down the digestion of sugar. The beta-glucans make sure sugar is not absorbed too quickly by the body. This reduces blood sugar spikes and keeps your blood sugar levels stable.
Helps in Weight Loss: There is so much fiber in oats, they actually promote the feeling of having a full belly. When we feel full, our satiety hormones trigger and we don’t have the constant urge to snack and overeat.
Calms & de-stresses:Magnesium present in oatmeal has the ability to de-stress, promote feelings of calmness, and reduce anxiety and panic attacks.
Banishes Skin Problems: Nutrients in oatmeal like copper, zinc, selenium, thiamin, and niacin contribute to support skin health.
Boosts Energy:Oatmeal is both a slow-digesting carb and a protein-rich source of energy for your body. Oatmeal is full of good carbs that keep your body feeling energised and alert.
Boosts Your Immune: Beta-glucan not only helps neutrophils (the most abundant type of non-specific immune cell) navigate to the site of an infection more quickly, it also enhances their ability to eliminate the bacteria they find there.
Keeps Your Heart Healthy:Oats are full of omega-3 fatty acids, folate, potassium, and calcium – all heart-loving essential fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals. Oat beta-glucan per day may lower the risk of heart disease.
FOR SELECTION & STORAGE
Buy small quantities of oats at one time since this grain has a slightly higher fat content than other grains and will go rancid more quickly. Also, in a packed container make sure there is no evidence of moisture.
If you purchase prepared oats products such as oatmeal, look at the ingredients to ensure that the product does not contain any salt, sugar or other additives.
