This is not an out and out oats recipe,but added with lots of lentils/protein. I tried this paniyaram last week and just loved it…This is somewhat like the khara paniyaram recipe I have in my archive, just that I replaced rice with oats and the taste was really awesome and the paniyarams were so so soft. I don’t make any oats recipes which tastes sweet as I cant even eat two mouths and love to try different savoury recipes with oats. Have it for breakfast(soak lentils over night),or dinner or even as an evening snack,you will love it!
