Tomato oats is a very simple dish similar to tomato rice. I have replaced rice with rolled oats. This dish is low in calories and is great for weight loss. It keeps you fuller for a longer time, reduces your hunger cravings and it is also delicious. It takes just 15 minutes to make this dish with oats. Today we will learn how to make delicious tomato oats with step wise pictures.
Place oats in a sieve/colander and rinse it for a few seconds. Drain the water completely and let it sit for 15 minutes. Meantime we will prepare the tomato masala.
Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds, when it splutters, add finely chopped onion, green chilli and curry leaves.
When onion turns transparent, add finely chopped ginger, garlic and saute for a few seconds.
Than add chopped tomatoes, turmeric powder, coriander powder, sambar powder and salt needed.
Cook until tomato becomes mushy and the rawness of the spice powder goes.
Then add the rolled oats, mix well and cook for another 2-3 seconds.
Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot with any raita/pachadi of your choice.
Note – Use only rolled oats or steel cut oats for this recipe. You will get rolled oats in big supermarkets and also online on Amazon (India). Rolled oats are much healthier than quick cooking oats.
