Instant Yogurt Oats

Yogurt Oats - Healthy alternative to Yogurt rice

Life is running at full throttle. Days, weeks & months seems to pass by in a blur. Looking forward to summer and some downtime. Have quite a few posts in drafts and its been crazy trying to find time to post. Made this today for lunch, simple, easy to make and delicious and not to mention healthy, I knew I had to post it. Traditional yogurt rice recipe is made with rice and every family has their own version. My version today has the same traditional seasoning but added some toppings and replaced rice with oats for a healthier version.

Ingredients
2 cups Yogurt
1/2 cup milk

Seasoning
1 tbsp oil
1 tspn mustard seeds
1 tspn jeera/cumin
1 tspn urad dal
1 tspn Vamu/Ajwain 
pinch of hing
10~15 curry leaves
Salt according to taste

for toppings
finely chopped onions, tomatoes, green chiles, coriander, cucumber & grated carrot

Process
1. Add tbsp of oil in a pan and allow to heat and when hot add all the seasoning ingredients and fry till you see the mustard seeds pop
2. Now add oats and toast for about 4~5 minutes constantly till you have a nice aroma

3. Remove from heat and transfer into a bowl
4.  Add yogurt to the oats and mix well, add milk and salt and toss till all the oats are covered, if the mixture seems too thick add a little water/yogurt.
6. Mix well and wrap the container with foil and allow for oats to soak the  yogurt for about 15 minutes
7. Serve Oats with all chopped vegetables as toppings.
Delicious and satisfying Yogurt Oats healthy without being carb rich.

Have a good week ahead ..............
