The Indian population is becoming more health conscious by the day. How else do you explain products like whole wheat biscuits, sugar free cookies, fat free tea whitener, fat free real fruit yogurt – flooding the markets? Bagrey’s oats, muesli and other cereals were the ones to hit the market early on, some 4 years ago. Between Bagrey’s quick cooking oats and Quakers (Lays) Instant oats, I prefer the former, making sure I never run out of it.
A heaping into a bubbling soup or for a 2 minute breakfast, it is the best we can have. Oats being rich in fibre and low in Glycemic index, it is one of the most healthiest foods for weight watchers, diabetics or simply health conscious.
My two minute breakfast with oats goes like this – 1/4 cup oats + 1 cup water + 1/4 tsp salt + handful of frozen peas — Microwave at HIGH for 1 and half minutes, stirring once inbetween. Remove and add a dollop of fresh yogurt – serve HOT!
Oats is best for dinner if you have only yourself to feed or if you have come in after a tired day and in no mood to make anything elaborate. A regular salt and pepper seasoned porridge might sound quite boring though. Hence this nutritious, filling, Indianised Oats porridge.
