Oats fingers are a healthy snack or appetizer. This recipe can be done simply with oats and potatoes (veggies can be added) for vegetarians. And non-veg versions are made with adding cooked minced chicken, mutton, beef or fish as you wish. Kids would also like this dish because of the shape and taste. This dish is healthy as well since I have added oats with-it.
