Masala Oats

Masala Oats

My 258th recipe, “Masala Oats”, a quick, easy and delicious breakfast made with Quaker® Oats. Are you one of the those folks who believe that breakfast is the most important meal of the day ? If so, you can also count me in. I always try not to skip breakfast. That is the reason why I have posted so many breakfast recipes on this blog, next only to the count of desserts 🙂

And, how do you all like your breakfast ? I want my breakfast to be
– Hearty and filling.
– Not heavy on my tummy and weighing me down
– Quick and easy to make.

When I was thinking about what to prepare today, I didn’t have to think hard. I knew that Oats would be the best choice. I love having oats for breakfast. While I make some unique recipes with oats, I also try to substitute oats instead of rice in some of the classic recipes. It perfectly matches all the criteria I had mentioned for my perfect breakfast. I love sweet dishes for breakfast occasionally, however, most of the times I typically crave for savory foods.

Especially when I need some extra energy in the morning what better way than having some spicy food. So I decided to try making a spicy version of oats. This masala oats needs just a couple of veggies, a few basic spices and a box of Quaker® Oats. Within 10 mins you can treat yourself to a warm and comforting bowl of masala oats. This masala oats is just perfect for folks who love oats but like a different flavor profile than what they are used to eat regularly.

Notes | FAQ

- When sautéing onion with salt, in a non-stick pan, the onions will release moisture and hence will not burn. So no need of adding any extra oil. If you use a regular pan, you may need to add about 1/2 tsp of oil to saute the onions.
- Optionally, you can also add minced garlic, chopped tomatoes along with the onions for enhanced flavor.
- If you do not have sambar powder, you can substitute with 1/4 tsp red chilli powder + 1/8 tsp coriander powder + 1/8 tsp jeera powder.
- You can add any veggies of your choice. I added carrots and green beans.
