Yummy Dishes You Can Make Using Oats

1) Oats Idli

Oats idlis are very instant and easy to make. All you need is a coarsely ground cup of oats (you can use oats flour too), semolina, curd, and some simple spices. Add some roasted chana dal to increase the crunch quotient of the idlis. Steaming them might take a little longer than your regular idlis, but the results are worth it. You can temper them with curry leaves and mustard seeds. Serve with a spicy sambar, a thick coconut chutney, or a tomato-peanut chutney.

Fluffy and soft oats idli are an ideal lunch option.

2) Oats Upma

Packaged masala oats are quite popular in the market and very tasty too. But you can very easily create a bowl of masala oats upma at home too? A few veggies, some zesty masalas, and a cup of rolled oats are all you need to satisfy your healthy breakfast needs. Squeeze half a lemon and add some sev on top for that zing!

3) Oats Dosa

A crisp and thin dosa in the times of quarantine sounds like a beautiful (and unachievable) dream. Let me tell you, you’re wrong. It’s possible and can be achieved with healthier ingredients. Making a perfectly crisp dosa at home with your regular non-stick tawa is an art in itself, but making it with oats is even more commendable. Use rice flour and oats flour in equal quantities. Add chopped onions to it, if you wish to. Enjoy with a bowl of sambar and some lip-smacking chutneys. Serve them immediately, as they get soggy too soon.

Tip – Make sure the batter is in flowing consistency. If it’s too thick, it won’t spread evenly. If it’s too thin, you won’t be able to flip it.

4) Oats Anda Bhurji

The taste of an anda bhurji (Masala scrambled eggs) with some butter bread and chai is an ideal anytime-any day meal. Make the usual onion-tomato-green chili masala for the bhurji and add a handful of toasted rolled oats to your scrambled egg mix before pouring it into the pan. Quickly take it off the heat once the eggs are done. Do not overcook the bhurji as it might become chewy.

5) Oats Kheer

One of the quickest kheers to make is an oats kheer. This can be made under 30 minutes and we can guarantee there will be no leftovers. Roast the oats in ghee, add full cream milk, and let it cook on a slow flame for 15 minutes. Crush a green cardamom pod and add in the mix for fragrant results. Add sugar or jaggery according to your taste. Once done, chill in the refrigerator for an hour. Add lots of dry fruits on top before serving.
