BM #87 Day 25 - 

I just realized that we are nearing the completion of this month long 'Explore the flavors'. We are thoroughly enjoying this series. hope all of you are as well. I shall post a Recap of the series in a few days. 

This is one of my favorite ways to consume Oats. As a South Indian it is expected that I make sambar everyday. We love the homey dals with greens, so they get done everyday. I make Sambar once in 10-15 days. Inevitably it gets leftover for the next day. 

My family is not so fond of Sambar with idlis. So I do a happy dance and make this Sambar oats for my older one and myself. My little one will eat this if I make papad as an accompaniment.

Oh My God! I just realized that I have not posted the humble everyday sambar which I make at home. The link for Sambar I have given below is a special version of Chettinad Sambar.

Ingredients - 

Sambar 3 cups
Rolled Oats 1 cup
Seasoning (Oil 2 tsp, Mustard Seeds, Chana Dal, Urad Dal , Cashews, Curry leaves, Asafotida)

Method Of Preparation -

Roast the rolled oats in a heated pan until they turn golden brown.

Remove from heat. Set aside and pour hot Sambar into it.

Prepare the seasoning and mix it in the Sambar oats.

Serve hot with raita.


Preparation Time 15 minutes
Serves 3
