Masala oats, a super quick and healthy recipe ready in few minutes and absolutely delicious. I used quick cooking oats and made it to a porridge consistency. Loaded with veggies like carrots, beans, capsicum which gave a good crunch to this spicy oats. This recipe is similar to Chicken Oats | Oats haleem, except the chicken and fried onions part.

Masala oats is a good option for breakfast, lunch or even dinner. Serve it with pappad and raita to have a wonderful lunch/ dinner meal.
