Healthy Oatmeal Recipe

Oatmeal and vegetable patties are super healthy snacks for fussy kids! My little one refuses to have oats in any other form esp. when cooked with sweetened milk. Vegetable patties with boiled veggies and oats is power packed with nutrients, fiber and energy, enough to get your little ones up and dancing on their little feet.

Ingredients
Oats – 5 tablespoons
Boiled potatoes – 2
Boiled and mashed veggies (carrots, green peas, french beans) – 1 cup
Coriander-Cumin(dhania zeera) roasted and powdered – 1/4 teaspoon
Carom seeds(ajwain) – 1/4 teaspoon
Red chilly powder – as required or optional
Salt – as required
Onion finally chopped – 1 teaspoon
Fennel seed powder – 1/4 teaspoon

How to prepare
Powder oats in a mixer to a rough consistency. Mix together mashed vegetables, boiled potatoes, onion and all spices/condiments together. Make small oblong flattened balls and shallow fry on a non-stick frying pan with very less oil. Use just enough oil to grease the pan, that is all. You can even use a microwave. Keep it on a HIGH for 50 secs or so, till the vegetable patties are cooked thoroughly.

Serve hot with tomato sauce or cheese dips!
