Oats Chilla or Salty Oats Pancake

Hello Everyone,

'A good breakfast fuels you up and gets you ready for the day.' 

So, nothing is better than having oats in breakfast to kick start the day.
Rich in fiber, high in protein, low in fat, gluten free and a dish made in less oil = Healthy Day

The recipe that I am sharing with you all today is 'Oats Chilla' or 'Oats Pura ' or 'Salty Oats Pancake'. Usually, the chilla is made from besan(gram flour) but these pancakes are made from oats and quantity of besan (gram flour) added to it is less which makes them extremely filling and light.

Here goes the recipe:
