What's in the name? LOL, ask me about it. I was so confuse, what to name this dish. It's a blend of batata (potato) vada with outer layer of dosa batter.

“Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper.” is an old saying in many countries. Most of the nutritionist suggest a bowl of oatmeal in the morning.

Because of COVID, many hotels did not serve the breakfast, this was the easiest healthy breakfast I was able to make in 2 mins using microwave in the room.

I have a very fond memory of my dad preparing churma ladoo. He is almost 90 and this recipe is as old as since he started making it in his young days. He never let my mom make this sweet by herself 😃  I have used his recipe but instead of ladoo or wheat flour I used oats as I am gluten intolerant and able to eat oats.

This recipe is inspired by Ranveer Brar's pani wale pakode. Since these pakoda are cooked in water, I have only used 1 tbsp oil to prepare the whole dish. Also, I am using beans, it makes this dish rich in protein. This dish is very similar to a dish called rasawala (rasiya) gota in Gujarati where we prepare gota (pakoda) with leftover rice and besan.
