Summary

With interesting textures and a remarkable balance of flavors, MTR 3 minute Breakfast dal oats make for a flavorful breakfast.

Oats have been a highly sought-after carbohydrate source, thanks to its high fiber content. A hearty, satisfying start to the day, oatmeals are exceptionally convenient breakfast options for those busy mornings. 

Typically relished as cinnamon-sweetened, milk-soaked overnight oats, we can’t say no to a warm bowl of oats with a masaledar twist. MTR, a brand that aims at making breakfast and snacks super easy for those who are always on the go, introduced a new product in their 3-minute breakfast range.

Read our MTR 3 minute breakfast dal oats review to find out whether this is worth a try. What does a bowl of dal and oats taste like? Let’s find out.

Our MTR dal oats review is divided into two stages- pre and post-cooking.

Visually, this mix primarily had rolled oats, some dehydrated carrots, onions, and black mustard seeds. A masala mix dominated the aroma. 

This instant breakfast requires no cooking, you just need to add half a cup (175 ml) of boiling water and cover the contents for three minutes. We followed these steps and three minutes later, the result was a khichdi-like consistency.

One spoonful into the taste test, we knew this is a pretty good product by MTR. Balanced salt levels, a strong chili kick, and overall tasty flavors. The tomatoes brought a desirable tanginess which tied the entire dish together. Talking about flavoring agents, we could taste the black mustard seeds and cumin. 

The dehydrated veggies, especially onions, add a bold bite. We always appreciate some textural variety. 

On the other hand, when we scrutinized the ingredient list we came across ghee and garlic. The aromas of these ingredients were barely there and so was the case with their flavors. 

That said, as the oatmeal started to cool down it became thicker.
