Spicy Vegetable oats - south indian style

Oats is the new healthy breakfast in all households.While we all know its healthy we also know its not all that easy to gulp down a mug of oats!!

Oats are readily available in many flavoured packs these days but I hardly use up the oats I got ages ago so why would I get a new pack.Looking at this recipe my mom would ask "why cant you just have it when you know its healthy!" well i can just swallow it but I would be happier if i had it more easily with liking.

This can be used as baby food too.My lil one hates oats so disguise it with fruits and other flavours so he can eat it atleast a bit!

Preparation time - 20 minutes
