The year 2020 has made us realize that a healthy lifestyle is a real treasure one should put all his/her efforts to work on in the best way without a single day of ignorance. I am a big aloo chat lover, but Potato hardly comes to my home as it places at the lowest in terms of liking to my family members’ favorite food item list.
So when I crave it, We go to the restaurants or in some potluck I make sure to have some Chat items —Pandemic blocked these options. Honestly, I also wanted to avoid Potatoes, Yes! You got the gist! My weighing scale scared of me.
To satisfy my craving, I got an idea of a healthy twist by making oats Tikki instead of aloo Tikki So that my family can also enjoy the potato less chat. Let’s have a quick recipe for oats Tikki chat!
Rolled Oats – 1 Cup
Carrot – 2 Grated
Salt- As per taste
Green Chilli- As per taste
Dry Mango Powder – 1tbsp.
Soaked Chick Peas -2 Cups
Onion – 1 finely chopped
Garlic -7-8 cloves
Ginger- 1 in
Salt- To taste
Coriander Powder- 2 tbsp
Everest Chhole Masala- 3 Tbsp
Grind all the items together. Add 1 tsp lemon juice.
Tamarind & Dates Chutney: I prefer to take readymade chutney from any Indian Grocery Store.
Garnish: Chopped Cilantro, Onion, Sev, Roasted Cumin Powder
1.Grind the rolled oats in mixer, keep it aside in a big bowl. Add the Tikki ingredients all together. mix it well by adding 1/4 cup of water.
2. Make a small tikkis .
3. Heat the griddle, grease it with oil and give it a good shallow fry.

Yummy! One of the things that have missed in the last year is the chat and roadside pani puri. Iam more of a “savory” person. Definitely going to try this out. Thanks for a healthy recipie.
I can resonate with, I am missing this roadside pani puri from last 5-6 years, this is on my toplist whenever I visit India!
Thanks for the interesting twist to make the food healthier. Loved your dishes.
Thank you 🙂
Healthy twist. I was looking for oats recipes and here it is. Delicious as well. Will try, if you let me know will it bind well because we add some bread crumbs for aloo tikki.
I didn’t use Bread crumb, but you can use a little portion of it for binding for smooth bind. 🙂
Wonderful healthy recipe, Archana. To tell u the truth I never eat oats and never tried too but I am tempted to try out your recipe. Thank you for sharing it 🙂
Thank you so much for your words Harjeet! 🙂
wow…..I loved the way you introduced oats in the chat..this makes it a healthier option. Would love to give it a try.
Thank you so much Swati! 🙂
Thanks for sharing these recipes. They seem really good – will incorporate these cooking tips.
Thank you so much Prerna! 🙂
Tikki chole chat is love for me but never thought of making it at home. I will try this recipe at home!
Wow Archana loved the healthy twist. I always try to experiment and do a healthy make over of our routine dishes. this one sounds just perfect. but I have one question regarding binding part in tikki. usually we use potato for that purpose. does oats alone work good. will give it a try for sure.
Thank you Surbhi for the read. Yes, dear oats bind well, also if you wish you can use just a little portion of brown bread crumb for sure shot result.
This looks interesting. I haven’t used oats in aloo tikki because of the consistency but will try out your recipe for sure. Thanks for sharing it.
Do try it Ritu, I am sure you will like it!
Great recipes and picture . Looking at all this one would feel hungry.
Looks delicious! A great innovation to cut calory without compromising taste. Difficult times lead to great ideas.
Totally agree Abhijit! Thank you for the reading!
I make these often. A perfect option instant chaat cravings. Oats are versatile and fill your tummy instantly.
True that Alpana Oats are the best healthy filler.
