I had bookmarked this recipe from Madhuri's blog a long time back. Somehow I was not able to prepare this one. Hubby usually has Oats porridge for breakfast and one day Lil Angel wanted pasta.So it was pasta for her and Oats kharabhath for me.
A very simple recipe which has loads of health benefits from Oats and the veggies added to it and very filling too.The original recipe uses green chillies but I added a little sambar powder to spice it up. The taste was awesome
I used :
[The original recipe is here]
Quick cooking oats ,lightly toasted - 1 cup
Onion - 1, chopped
Tomato,chopped - 1
Frozen green peas - a handful
Capsicum,chopped - 1, small
Sambar powder- 1 1/2 teaspoons
Curry leaves -a few
Mustard seeds - 1 teaspoon
Cumin seeds - 1 teaspoon
Turmeric powder - a pinch
Oil - 1 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Finely chopped coriander leaves and grated coconut to garnish
- Heat oil in a pan and put in mustard seeds, cumin and curry leaves
- When it splutters put in onion and capsicum and cook till onion turns translucent.
- Add the tomato and cook till mushy.
- Add water [ I used 1 1/2 cup] ,peas, turmeric powder,sambar powder, salt and bring to boil.
- When it comes to a rolling boil, slowly add the toasted oats and stir to mix so that there are no lumps.
- Cook till the mixture comes together and the oats is cooked.
- If more water is needed add warm water. If the mixture is watery, cook for a few more minutes.
- Remove from heat and serve garnished with coriander leaves and grated coconut.
Today is the fifth day of BM #6.Check out blogging marathon page to see what my fellow marathoners are cooking this week.
- This dish tastes best when served piping hot.
- Kharabhath is good on its own ,but if you prefer a side dish, coconut chutney is a good one to go with it.
