Masala Oats


Recently i went to buy a water bottle for Zini, and i saw packs of homestyle masala oats by quakers. (Yeah i can go out to buy something and come back with something else ;) ) i thought of giving it a try and oh i loved it. So from now onwards, move over maggie as the masala oats are my new comfort food :)

But then one day i ran out of the masala oats packs, but i had simple white oats at home, so i thought of making my version of masala oats, and they too turned out yummy :) so now i am regularly making this :)


Ready to Eat
Ready to Eat - You can garnish with Dhania patta if you want to :)
How do i make it??? See for yourself..

4 pods of Garlic - crushed or grated

1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper

Red Chilli powder (Optional)

1/2 teaspoon Dhania powder

1/4 teaspoon Turmeric

2 Cups water

1/2 cups oats

1/2 teaspoon oil

Method:

1) In a kadai, add the oil, onion, carrot, garlic, ginger and chilli paste.

2) Saute till the onions brown, then add tomatos.

3) Add Pepper, Chilli powder, Turmeric, Dhania powder and Salt. Keep stirring for 1 minute.

4) Add water, and then add Oats.

5) Now let the oats cook (Takes around 4-5 minutes).

6) Add sugar, if you want to...

And Dig in :)

Note: You can skip some masala or add some, you can experiment with it. And the measurements that i gave are as per my taste palate, you can change the amount of masala and other ingredients as per your liking and enjoy :)
