Masala Oat Slice

This idea came to me as I was thinking of my childhood; every time we visited India I would request Maggi Masala flavoured 2 minute noodles. Something about the flavouring just made me so happy.

As an adult, when masala oats came out, I was overjoyed!

My aim was to finally bake something savoury and so what came to mind was a masala oat slice.

I combined my favourite masala oat recipe with an oatmeal slice to create this delicious thing. If it wasn’t for public consumption I probably would have made it more spicy, but since it was, it isn’t as spicy as I would have liked it.

FYI: Public consumption went down really well. I had to refill the plate!

What you’ll need

  • 2 cups Rolled oats
  • 1.5 cup Plain Flour
  • 1 Tbsp Baking powder
  • Alternatively just use 1 cup of self raising flour
  • 250g or equivalent Butter/Margarine/Oil
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • Ground coriander
  • Ground cumin
  • Red chilli powder
  • Tomato paste/ finely chopped tomatoes
  • Turmeric
  • Garlic
  • Stock cube
  • Garam Masala
  • Boiling water

Procedure

  1. In a large bowl combine 1.5 cups of rolled oats, flour, (baking powder), brown sugar and a little of all the spices, minus the stock cube
  2. In a smaller bowl place the rest of the oats (1/2 cup), plenty of the spices, stock cube, garlic and tomato paste and pour boiled water over it until just covered. Allow to soak for about 30 minutes.
  3. Melt butter or margarine, if using. Make sure your eggs are beaten
  4. To the dry mix, add butter/margarine/oil, eggs and wet oat mix
  5. Mix until combined
  6. Pour into baking pan and allow to cook for 20 minutes
  7. Cut into whatever sized pieces you’d like
