Cheesy Oats Paratha

Nowadays most of our dinner goes for parathas that too with oats, i cant stop myself adding oats to my many dishes am preparing, coz may be am changing myself as health nut...I just love anything with oats, even my family members started loving oats in everything.....yea we are trying to eat less rice and having more healthy stuffs in our way of having our lunch, breakfast and dinner...Sometimes our snacks also goes for baked version of many snacks,coz before i used deepfry almost everything...Am happy that i can eat healthy and better now..Yesterday i prepared this cheesy oats paratha with chicken dhansak,parsi curry sure i will post soon..Both together tastes marvellous, with this melting cheesy oats parathas we had a fantastic lunch sterday..Even for dusting this paratha i used quick cooking oats and i prepared my parathas with puri presser for prefect round shapes which hardly need few drops of oil and i didnt struggled to make out parathas that too stuffed cheesy parathas as stuffed parathas are tend to be sticky to the rolling pin coz of the stuffing ingredients..




2cups Wheat flour
1+1/2cup Oats flour
3/4cup Grated emmental cheese /any other cheese
1tsp Cumin powder
1/2tsp Pepper powder
Salt
1cup Curd
Quick cooking oats for dusting
Oil for cooking and for greasing




Make a soft dough with wheat flour, oats flour, cumin seed powder,salt, curd and water...Keep aside for half an hour..meanwhile take the grated cheese in a bowl, add the pepper powder and 3pinches of salt, mix and keep in fridge..

Make 10-12 medium sized balls from the dough...flatten the dough balls a bit with ur fingers, place a tablespoon of spiced grated cheese, close the cheese completely with the dough, flatten them again, dust with quick cooking oats, keep aside..Do the same to all other dough balls..Grease the puri presser, drop the oats dusted doughs and press until the dough gets well flatten..if u dont have puri presser, dust the dough with all purpose flour and roll them as parathas..

Heat few drops of oil and place the flattened paratha, cook on both side until they turns golden brown..Serve hot either with any side dish, kids will enjoy without any side dish, the left over cheesy oats parathas can also suits prefectly for evening snacks if they are served warm..
