Well! I just entered that motherhood zone where my toddler already is picking up on her father's taste-buds. And being momsoon in Mumbai it already gives its way to call for some fried stuff to be snacked on, so I just thought of making my healthy version of oats cutlet, where I infused vegetables in it, well! not because my daughter is picky on veggies but her dad is.
So here we go with having veggies filled oats cooked in minimal oil. Healthy isn't tasteless anymore!!
Serving- 6 medium sized cutlets and 4 mini cutlets. Preparation-10mins
Cooking time-15 mins
1 cup rolled oats
1 big boiled and mashed potatoe
1/2 cup yellow bell-pepper chopped

1/2 teaspoon chilli flakes
2 green chillies chopped
1/2 teaspoon chat masala
1 inch ginger grated
3 cloves of garlic grated

2. Add chopped onion, saute for a min.
3. Add chopped vegetables and oats and saute for 3-4mins on medium flame.
