Oats Mixed Vegetable Uthappam (Instant)
Uthappam is one of the easiest breakfast dishes that you can try. With some dosa batter and chopped veggies on hand, you can create a delicious breakfast in minutes. I am all about adding some wholesome ingredients like whole grains or vegetables in every meal – hence the mixed veggie oats uthappam! I also feel that the quicker it is to prepare something, the more likely I will try it – So I opt for simple and quick recipe fixes.
Microwave Khaman-Oats Spinach Dhokla
Khaman Dhokla is an Indian steamed savory cake made using chickpea flour/gram flour/besan. It is one quick, healthy treat that is loved by all! It is one of those classic dishes like Indian samosas. There a ton of variants and recipes already up on the internet for a lot of khaman dhokla recipes and other variants! But this is my take on it. I figured it had to feature on my blog since I make it practically every time I am hungry and want something super quick. There are a couple of pros and cons of using microwave to prepare dhokla. For the plus points – it is really easy, quick and is a great way to stay away from junk food when you are super hungry! On the other hand, like most quick shortcuts to Indian food, using a microwave just does not give the same texture as steaming the dhokla. That being said I still love this recipe 😀
Healthy Mango and Oats Pancakes
Being a vegetarian (minus eggs) person, pancakes are again one thing that I can’t have outside 🙁 I knew what needs to be done to whip up a quick batch of eggless pancakes, but somehow I never got around it! And then today I was home all day and the weather was really warm and I wanted ice-cream. So the ever-faithful, absolutely healthy and smashing one-ingredient ice-cream came to my rescue! While the ice-cream was freezing – I thought of having pancakes and ice-cream for lunch 🙂 That is not too bad right – oats, mangoes, bananas and milk!
