Oats Pongal / Oats with Moong Dal / Oats & Lentil Dish– Pongal Special Recipes / Diabetic Friendly Recipes


 I always prefer oats to have for breakfast and dinner..Yes a little Diet consicious..I don’t prefer oats porridge daily because I will get bored easily and leave the diet..So what I do is, I cook lots of healthy dishes with oats and have it..So my oats diet will last longer..


This is a awesome dish which is made with a mixture of dal and oats which it makes it even more healthier..You can have it for breakfast, lunch or dinner, any way it is good…I served it with Tomato Chutney and it tasted so good..

  60. I've never cooked oats with dal before. At first I only wanted to make a half-portion - one cup of oats, half a cup of dal - because I wasn't sure if everyone would like this combination. But then I thought "Hey, it's a Yummy Tummy recipe - of course everyone will like it!". And so I added more ingredients and made the full portion. And, yes, we did love it.

  61. I tried this today. My hubby loved this dish so much. He asked to prepare this dish often... thanks for yummy dish

    ReplyDelete
  62. Wow this looks yummy ! I always have oats porridge for breakfast as part of my diet and its so boring! Oats pongal looks yum!

    Aarthi can i request you to post more of healthy and less calories recipes for ppl like me who are trying to lose weight? Varieties while dieting will make us stick to the diet :) And instead of ghee here can we add oil? or will it spoil the taste?
