Oats dal khichdi recipe- Oats recipes

       As I have already posted some oats recipes by replacing the usual rice in the recipe, this is another recipe where oats occupies the place of rice in the popular dal khichdi. As its  gets quite boring eating sweetened oats or with salted buttermilk, its sometimes nice to spicen your oats and believe me its quite delicious.Also a small portion of it is quite filling, so take care that you dont make this in excess like your rice khichdi. Morever such recipes with oats should be enjoyed  hot and fresh. Because if you keep oats for a long time, it gets soggy and sticky too.

Recipe Notes

Khichdi will thicken with time.

When you serve, it should be of a semi solid consistency.

So plan the cooking accordingly. It will hardly take 30 minutes to make this dish.

According to me, anything with oats should be served immediately.
