Oat – Palak Pitha ( Oat Pancake)

Suji : oat meal or oat bran    =  2: 1 roughly  ( but any proportion will do)

Use olive oil for best taste; otherwise can use refined oil.

Mix suji, oat, 1-2 tbsp curd, water, a few drops of olive oil, salt, chopped palak ( only leaf portion – each chopped into 2-3 pieces), sliced onion ( in generous quantity and a bit thick slice) and chopped green chilli ( just slit into two halves).  Keep for 20-30 mins.   Adjust consistency of the mix by adding more water, as required to have a slightly thick, but spreadable, consistency.

Heat ½ tsp olive oila on a non-stick pan. Spread 1-2 small ladle-full of the mix like a pitha( pancake). Make slightly thick pitha ( and smaller rounds, otherwise it will be difficult to flip side) and sprinkle a few drops of olive oil on top side. Let it get fried on low fire – cover while frying, to let suji cook well. Flip side and fry on the other side. Serve hot with/without sauce/chutney.
