Wheat and Oats Roll



Roll needs no introduction. Rolls are made of refined flour. I thought of making it healthy with some different ingredients. This can be served as a breakfast item, a tea time snack or for dinner.
Basic info about the recipe
Cuisine                                                           - South Indian
Serves                                                            - 2 people.
Ingredients
  1. Atta                                                      - 2 cups
  2. Oats                                                     - 1 cup
  3. Besan                                                   - 1 tbsp
  4. Salt                                                      - to taste
  5. Carrot                                                   - 1 no:
  6. Onion                                                   - 1 no:
  7. Tomato                                                 - 1 no:
  8. Oregano                                               - as required
  9. Red chilli flakes                                     - as required
  10.  Oil                                                       - as required.

Method: Grate the carrot. Dice the onion and tomato and keep aside.
Make a dosa batter with wheat, oats, besan, salt and water.( the consistency should not be very thick)
Heat a pan and pour a ladle of batter to it. Sprinkle the grated carrot, onion and tomato( like uthappam). Drizzle some drops of oil. Wait to cook.
Carefully flip to the other side and allow to cook.
Remove from pan and sprinkle some red chilli flakes and oregano on top. Roll and serve hot.

Notes: If you are making this for children, you can avoid red chilli flakes and put some grated cheese on top. In that case allow the cheese to melt and then add oregano.

Sambol



Having given the recipe for suttu, it is time now to post sambol which is the perfect combination for the previously mentioned suttu. Sambol is a Srilankan side dish prepared with coconut. Some would add dry fish to this dish even though I prefer a vegetarian one.
Basic info about the recipe
Cuisine                                                 - Sri Lankan
Serves                                                  - 2-3 people.
Ingredients
  1. Grated coconut                           - half a coconut

  5. Lemon juice                                - 2 tsp

Method: Grind all the ingredients together except lime juice. Water should not be added at the time of grinding as it is a dry chutney.
Transfer to a bowl. Add lime juice. Mix well and serve.
