Toddler Breakfast Series: Oats Masala Paratha

If a poll was conducted on the most preferred Indian breakfast recipes, I am sure parathas would feature among the top five. They are high on carbohydrates, keeping the child full and energetic for a longer time. Of course, they are easy to make too! This recipe, the Oats Masala Paratha is a great variation from the usual parathas. It is ideal for kids since oats are high in fibre, rich in minerals and low in sodium.

You can add some vegetables to the paratha and enrich it further. These parathas, full of the goodness of oats and wheat, are best eaten off the griddle as they tend to harden on cooling.

Oats Masala Paratha

Makes 6 parathas


  • 1 cup quick cooking oats
  • ½ cup whole wheat flour / atta
  • 1/4th cup chopped spinach
  • 1/4th cup chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons oil (for dough)
  • 1/4th teaspoon turmeric powder / haldi
  • 1/2 teaspoon jeera / cumin seeds
  • ½ teaspoon finely chopped green chillies or red chilli powder (optional)
  • Salt as per taste
  • Water to knead the dough, as required
  • Oil for cooking


Step 1 – Grind the oats to a coarse powder. If your child is younger (around 2 years old) then grind it to a fine powder, similar in consistency to the flour.

Step 2 – Combine the oats powder, whole wheat flour, spinach, onion, oil, haldi, jeera and salt in a wide thali.

Step 3 –  Add water and knead everything together to make soft, pliable dough. Cover the dough and set it aside for 15 minutes.

Step 4 – When you are ready to make parathas, divide dough into 6 balls and roll them thin like chapattis. Cook on a hot griddle, applying oil on both sides.

Serve these yummy oat masala parathas hot with a chutney or ketchup.
