oats khichdi recipe

one of the ways i include oats in our diet is by preparing oats khichdi. oats dosa, oats idli and this oats khichdi are some of our family favorite recipe with oats. so at times i prepare this oats khichdi and give a skip to the regular moong dal khichdi.

i always add some veggies in it for some more nutrition. addition of veggies also make the khichdi more tasty. otherwise kids won’t like the bland taste of oats. the recipe is very easy and similar to the way khichdi is made. you can add veggies of your choice also. i add whatever spare veggies i have in the fridge. the recipe is also quick to prepare.

you can use quick cooking oats as well as rolled oats to prepare the recipe. if using rolled oats, then just add some more water. the recipe can doubled or tripled. you can even halve the recipe and prepare this khichdi for 1-2 person only, as not everyone is fond of oats.

few more delicious khichdi recipes you can try are sabudana khichdi, masala khichdi, palak khichdi, rava kichadi (sooji khichdi) and bhaja muger khichuri (bengali moong dal khichdi).

oats khichdi can be served plain or along with some curd, raita or pickle. i simply drizzle some lemon juice and have it.

  1. The recipe turned out to be very delicious. May i know the calorie count for the recipe

    • thanks dt. i will have to calculate the calories. will add in the recipe box in some time.

  2. Thank you so much for your good work! I’m a vegetarian from Europe and really, really love your recipes! They are so simple, versatile and yummy. There are a few recipes for oat-based stews in our country, but they usually taste very bland, you eat them when you’re stomach-sick 😉 So I never would have thought of adding oats to lentils and veggies. But we really loved the flavor and the thickening effect. The only thing I have to adapt for our tastebuds is the amount of green chili – we are just to weak … but I hope I will get used to it sooner or later.

    • Welcome Alfredo. Glad to read your positive feedback. In Indian cooking we use more spices than is used in Europe.

  3. Nice recipe… 🙂
    Can it be had as breakfast? The said measurements will suffice 1 person or 2?

    • Poornima, yes you can have oats khichdi for breakfast. Just enough for 2 person. But depends upon serving size also.

  4. Hi . 1/3 cup means it’s less than 1/4 cup ?

    • nasreen, its more. 1/4 is 25% and 1/3 is 33%.
