Nice recipe, but do u call it oats kichidi or oats pongal
It is khichdi as pongal does not have vegetables. But you can name it as you like hmlatha.
Do we have to pressure cook it or just cooking in the pan itself enough
No problem. You can cook covered in a pan. It will take more time than pressure cooker.That's all.
Made today… so delicious.. going to try more oat recipes… wasn't so much fond of oats before but now your recipes have encouraged me to try more oats recipes… thanks a lot ��
Can this be taken in tiffin or will it turn soggy?
You can take it. It will thicken a little. It taste good when taken hot.
