I make oatmeal 2 ways, one is sweet and the other is savoury. As much as I like eating sweet oatmeal with fruits for breakfast, I sometimes crave for savoury and what better way to turn your oatmeal into a savoury dish!
This Savoury Oatmeal is spicy and tangy at the same time. In India, we get masala oats in a small packet enough for one person. I do miss those. I couldn’t find it in Qatar, so that’s when I decided to make it at home with fresh ingredients rather than the store-bought one.
You can use any type of oats like steel-cut, rolled or instant oats to make this recipe.
So if you crave of eating something savoury try my Savoury Oatmeal for breakfast.
