Everything on there looks so delicious, but there are definitely some recipes that haven’t turned out quite right. Working from home has been a blessing, but it’s also been way too easy to get carried away on a project and then before I know it, it’s breakfast/Dinner time and I am rushing to put a meal together. I am all about easy meals that taste good and are healthy, so I thought I’d share some recipes I’ve been loving lately, that are pretty quick to whip up during the week. Also, all of these involve Oats. Yes, oats! I am an oat addict and mother has made sure she ads her little touch to oats every time I crib for a change.

Snacking in bed or even having any food in the bedroom was something that was considered a big no-no in my house growing up. Eating belonged in the dining room, bedrooms were for sleeping, laundry needed to be put away promptly. Everything had a place and every room had a purpose. But let’s face it — sometimes it’s fun to just lounge around, snack in bed and binge watch a show and then go experiment with something that is always stocked up in the kitchen.
Here’s how I go about experimenting with something that is always in my kitchen, all courtesy my mother’s magical touch to my bland recipes.
Next time you find Quaker oats and you think they are boring and there’s nothing more to them, this is what you can do :
Recipe ONE - Khichu
- Roasted Oats powder
- Cumin Seeds
In a bowl, mix oats powder, cumin seeds and salt. Add water till the oats achieve a thin consistency. The batter must be slightly thinner than your average Idli batter. Grease a dish and add the batter to the dish. Take a big vessel with water and heat the water. Place the dish with the batter inside and cover the vessel. Let the Khichu steam for 5-7 Minutes. When you lift the lid, if the khichu has risen then it is cooked and ready to eat. Take if off the heat and serve it in a bowl with a mix of chilly powder and a pinch of salt.
Recipe TWO - Scrambled OatsIngredients:
- 5 tablespoon oats
- 1 chopped onion
- Green chillies
- Tomatoes (if you like)
Saute the vegetables in oil first and then add the oats with some water. Once the oats are cooked, add the cheese and heat till the mixture turns dry.
Take off the flame, garnish with coriander and serve.
The tastiest bowl of Khichu and Scrambled oats is ready for breakfast!
