Oats Khara Pongal | Indian Oats Recipes

Print Friendly and PDF

When I posted 'Savory Oats Porridge' previously many of you liked it and even tried at home and are happy with the results.Apart from that,I do a lot of savory versions of oats porridge's to give my family a healthy start of the day.Oats pongal is one among them which is very easy to make and is very tasty to eat.I prepare this in a way very much similar to our beloved south Indian style pongal and there is no compromise in taste as well.If you are looking for a healthy breakfast this recipe is for you,add this to your menu definitely.

Ingredients:
1 1/4 cup quick cooking Oats
3/4 cup yellow moong dal
6-8 cashew nuts,broken
8-10 peppercorns,slightly crushed
1/2" ginger,finely chopped
3-4 green chillies,slit
8-10 curry leaves
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
a pinch of turmeric
1 tsp jeera
few pinches of hing
1 tbsp ghee
2 tsp oil
salt to taste

Method:
  • Heat ghee and oil in a thick bottomed pan or small pressure cooker.Add broken cashewnuts and fry until light golden in color and remove them from oil using a slotted spoon.
  • In the remaining oil,crackle mustard seeds,jeera and add slit green chillies,ginger and fry until they wilt.
  • Add curry leaves,hing and fry slightly.
  • Add yellow moong dal and fry until you get a nice aroma and is light golden brown in color.
  • Add four cups of water and cook until the moong dal is cooked and soft.If you are using pressure cooker,pressure cook it for 4 whistles.
  • Add enough salt,pinch of turmeric and oats and stir well.cover it and cook it on low flame for 8-10 mins until everything is well mixed.If you feel the consistency is slightly thicker add some milk or water at this stage to get the desired consistency.
  • Add the fried cashew nuts and mix well.
Serve it piping hot with Coconut chutney/Sambar/ Tamarind gojju with some extra ghee on top.Eat this right away and do not keep it for long as the oats starts becoming sticky later.
