Baked Oats Thattai Recipe, Savory Cracker
This baked Oats and Rice Thattai Recipe is a healthier twist to a popular Tamilian snack which traditionally is made using rice flour and is deep fried.
In this baked variation, I have incorporated oat flour with rice flour. And instead of deep frying, two healthier variations have been presented. You can either bake them in the oven or air fry them for a healthier twist.
The other ingredients in Thattai are very basic and fixed. You need to combine asafoetida, red chilli, salt, butter with rice flour. For some crunchiness and color, roasted gram and curry leaves are added too.
It is customary to prepare Thattai for Janmashtami. But it is an equally popular snack during diwali or navratri too. Requiring very few ingredients, this is an easy recipe and stays well for a long time.
I am sure that you will try this healthier baked oats thattai recipe during this festive season and have some guilt free indulgence.
