Oat Avatar 7 – OAT SAMBHAR

October 12, 2012 by Snigdha

( My Spicy Oat with sambhar masala)

Boil together oatmeal (about 5- 6 tbsp ), 2-3 tbsp home made tomato puree ( i.e raw tomatoes ground in mixie),3 cups water, salt to taste and 1-1/2 tbsp Sambhar masala.. Half-way through, add chopped coriander leaves. Cook for 3-4 mins till oat is done and consistency is running semi solid. Really yummy with a slight tangy taste with flavour of South Indian sambhar(which most of you can not identify) and lovely aroma of fresh coriander leaves!  Enjoy !!

Recipe -Oat Avatar 5- Suji Oat Pitha

July 13, 2012 by Snigdha

Suji –Oat Pitha

Suji : oat meal or oat bran    =  2: 1 roughly  ( but any proportion will do)

Mix suji, oat, 1-2 tbsp curd, a few drops of olive oil ( or refined oil), salt, chopped spring onion( if available), chopped onion, chopped ginger, green chilli (a bit), pepper powder ( optional), chopped dhania patta and water.  Keep for 20-30 mins.   Adjust consistency by adding more water, as required to have a slightly thick, but spreadable, consistency of the mix.

Heat ½ tsp olive oil on a non-stick pan. Spread 1-2 small ladle-full of the mix like a pitha( pancake). Make slightly thick pitha ( and smaller rounds, otherwise it will be difficult to flip side) and sprinkle a few drops of olive oil on top side. Let it get fried on low fire – cover while frying, to let suji cook well. Flip side and fry on the other side. Serve hot with/without sauce/chutney.

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.
