Oats pongal recipe - Oats recipes

My hubby doesn't prefer eating rice in the night. So it's mostly chapatis for dinner. But there are some days when I don't get time to make chapatis. So we came up with the idea of using oats in cooking and substituting rice with oats.Though I have used oats in idlis and dosai before, a hubby's friend suggested using in upma etc. I made paniyaaram with oats recently. Then I tried this pongal with a lot of hesitation , but it actually tasted good. I will surely try upma soon.

       Always serve it immediately as it might turn dry very soon.
