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 recipe.

i always add some veggies in it for some more nutrition. addition of veggies also makes the oats 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.

tips for making oats khichdi

  • you can add veggies of your choice also. i add whatever spare veggies i have in the fridge.
  • 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.
  • for a no spicy oats khichdi, skip green chilies, red chili powder and add less ginger.
  • for a no onion no garlic khichdi, just skip the onions.
  • 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.

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

  1. Loved the idea of having oats as khichdi with moong dal and veggies.With a dash of lime juice it was simply delicious.5 stars

  2. Hello maam…I just love your recipes.I have tried many of them nd each recipe turned out great.
    Thank you for your recipes. ☺5 stars

  3. 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.5 stars

  4. Nice recipe… 🙂
    Can it be had as breakfast? The said measurements will suffice 1 person or 2?5 stars
