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 :)
