A healthy and delicious savory masala oats breakfast dish loaded with lots of vegetables and mild spices and healthy goodness.
When we were in India, we’d tried the Quaker masala oats a couple of times for breakfast and liked it a lot. Ever since then after moving to Ireland I always make the home made version of the masala oats which is more healthy and without any preservative. Actually, the other reason is as we don’t get it here so have to make at home only.
These masala oats are super easy to make and a very filling breakfast dish to make on busy weekdays or just any other day when you are feeling too lazy to cook elaborate breakfast meals. As we are doing protein rich recipes, I knew I had to post this simple breakfast dish which was going nuts in the drafts since ages.
Actually, it kind of feels weird but I think I am getting kind of automatic subtheme based on course. The first three recipes are breakfast and who knows may be luckily I do get a course based subtheme with the rest of the recipes too, fingers crossing.
Here are some more recipes using Oats. Do look out if you like fiber and protein-rich oats for your breakfast.
