Oats chutney powder

Yesterday i tried chutney powder using oats for the first time,which was so delicious and yum As.we all know  it is a good source of dietary fibre."soluble fibre from oatmeal is low in saturated fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk of heart disease".source: U.S.FDA.So it is a great way to start your day with plenty of Energy.
              My kids do not like oats if i give them like a porridge .So i just add in our own south indian breakfast to make it more interesting like in idlies,dosas,upma, paddu/appo or any other food in different forms.But today for the first time i used oats in my dry chutney powder because kids love chutney powder a lot and that they want almost daily in their breakfast and some times in their lunch also.Yesterday  i actually wanted to prepare oats upma so for  that  i roasted my oats to keep in handy when i needed.But i am not very sure about the kids so prepared some vermicelli upma for them .Then i dropped my plan to prepare oats upma.So tried this chutney .
