My Notes:

  • You can use vegetables of your choice. Also if you like the veggies in pieces just mash it roughly.
  • Adjust water according to the oats variety. If you want you can add curd / buttermilk, mix it while serving.
  • Adding the vegetables and spice powders even before the oats is cooked helps in blending the flavours well. You can also pressure cook the vegetables, oats together with the spice powders.
  • Amma usually sautes onion and tomato well and then add it to the other other ingredients. You can try this too as tomatoes give a nice flavour.

  31. I've been wanting to adopt Oats but could never stick to it because of the bland and dispassionate taste.
