Bored with eating oatmeal the same common way ? Cooked in milk, adding sugar/honey, nuts, raisin, dates etc.??

Try this out. You would love it, if you like the ready-to-cook instant noodles’ flavour. Got this idea from my daughter – improvised a bit.

SPICY OAT

2 serves

Boil together oatmeal (about 5- 6 tbsp ), about 2 cups water, salt to taste, 1 tbsp Ruchi Curry masala ( or any other brand) and ½ tsp Grihasti Chowmen masala ( if you have). Cook for 3-4 mins till oat is done.

Can it get any simpler?

You can add only peas and corn – makes a good combination.

Spicy Oat with vegetables 

Dry fry oatmeal lightly and keep aside.  Boil together enough water ( a little over 1 cup per 3 tbsp oat), vegetables ( peas, finely chopped carrot, beans, cauli flower ), chopped onion, chopped dhania patta, curry powder ( 1 tbsp per 3 -4 tbsp of oat), a bit of Grihasti Chowmein masala ( skip if you do not have- just add more curry masala) and salt to taste. Cook for 2-3 mins till vegetables are half done. Stir in the fried oatmeal and cook for another 2 minutes. Serve hot.
