Protein Rich Savoury Oats / Homemade Masala Oats

A twist in our regular Masala oats or Savory oats, this dish is creamy, spicy and extremely healthy.

I recently turned Vegan (Have I already told you that in my previous posts?!) and It has made my lie a little more challenging because I have to make 3 different kind of dishes for all three meals almost every day since my little princess has her own demands and I haven't managed to turned my DH into a Vegan yet.

Anyway, I was a hardcore fan of Eggs in Masala oats where I would break 2-3 eggs into the boiling oats + veggies + masalas mixture. I admit that I do miss that sometimes but I have discovered a few things that replace that taste. This Masala oats with Tofu is one of those dishes that is one of my absolute favorites.

Heat oil in a pan, add mustard and cumin seeds. Once they splutter, add curry leaves.

Now, add all the veggies except tomatoes and peas. Add the Ginger garlic paste as well. Cover and cook for 2-3 minutes.

Add 2 cups of water, tomato and peas. Cover again and let it boil while we make almond-sesame mixture.

Grind the almonds and sesame seeds together with water just enough to make a paste.

Add the Almond-sesame paste and salt to the boiling mixture and give a good stir.

Add the masala powders, mix well and let the mixture boil for another minute.

Add oats and Tofu now, mix well so that there are no lumps. Cover and cook in simmer for at least 5 minutes before removing from flame.

Garnish with chopped Coriander leaves and serve hot.
