Oats Coconut Pathiri | Oats Thenga Pathiri


Oats Coconut Pathiri is a delightful variation from the traditional ‘Thenga Pathiri’ prepared with coconut and rice flour. Thenga Pathiri is a thin and soft textured flatbread usually served with curry dishes. For preparing Oats Thenga Pathiri, you use powdered oats instead of rice flour. You can also add some spicy flavorings to add to the richness of the dish and to enhance the flavoring, which I have not done here. This is optional and here I have provided a basic oats dish. I am adding some vital points here that might be useful for you. Be careful while adding water and do not make it watery. It should be a well manageable sticky dough that can be easily rolled out in a pathiri pressing pan. Those who are bored of the usual rice flour pathiris can try Oats Thenga Pathiri that grants a distinct flavor. This is a variety dish and believe me I required no side dish with this. I tasted the healthy innovative dish at my friend’s place and loved it at first sight itself.

Oats Coconut Pathiri is wholesome, healthy and very filling too. You can pack Oats Thenga Pathiri in tiffin boxes too for your kid. My kid loves it with honey drizzled on top and that is a great relief for me since I am a working mom.
