This is a very nutritious and healthy dish. I learnt to make this from my dad. Do try this dish and see ur kids gobble up this tasty oats dish. This is a good way to make kids eat oats.
White Oats – 2 cups
Onions – 1 medium
Potatoes – 1 medium
Green chillies – 2
Jeera (cumin seeds)- 1 tsp
Coriander leaves for garnishing
Turmeric powder – 1 tsp
Nylon sev for garnish (optional)
In a strainer add the oats and pour water onto it and keep it aside. All the water will get drained down from the strainer. Keep it aside for sometime.
In a pan put some oil. Add jeera and the green chillies. Sautee for some time. Now add the chopped onions and let it cook till tender. Add the cubed potatoes, turmeric powder and fry till the potato get fully cooked and a bit roasted.
Now once the potatos is cooked add the oats into it… and mix well.Cook it covered for 10 mins on medium flame.Now garnish it with chopped coriander leaves.Add the fresh lemon juice and mix well. Serve in a plate and garnish with nylon sev and serve.
It can be made healthier by adding tofu or carrots instead of potatos if one is on a carbohydrate restricted diet.
