Masala Oats

This is my first try on savory oats as masala oats. Usually I prepare the sweet porridge and have made payasam too (will post the recipe soon). I was quite unsure of howย masala oats would turn out, but then, decided to give it a try. And.. yes, it was a hit. The crunchy veggies in the soft and soggy oats were interesting. And the thought that we were having something absolutely healthy and nutritious added to the joy ๐Ÿ™‚ย To complete the breakfast, we had boiled eggs too.

 

All four of us enjoyed and were happy. Do you know what Tanu had to say, โ€œ It tastes like Maggi!!โ€ ๐Ÿ™‚ Yes, she was right, there was something, a distinct flavor that reminded me of Maggi too.. Ours used to be a Maggi family till sometime back. I remember those hectic days (before Tanu came to our lives), when I used to work in office and many a days Maggi was my savior for dinner. Seriously, those were the days I just started taking baby steps to independent cooking. And hardly knew anything.

As time passed by, I started learning things and also became more cautious of what we ate. So the frequency of Maggi lessened from frequent to less often. It was Tanu’s favorite too. But after the Maggi controversy, we started avoiding this junk totally. So this homemade spicy oats version took us back to those Maggi days.. ๐Ÿ™‚ And now I realize healthy things like oats can be tasty too ๐Ÿ™‚
