Oats 1 cup
Rava ½ cup
Green chilly 5
Curry leaf 1 strip
Ginger small piece
salt as required
Mustard, urad dal, cooking oil for tempering
Heat kadai, dry fry rava to golden colour , transfer to a plate. Dry fry oats , sauté only few times , transfer to another plate. Cut onions, green chillies and ginger.
Heat oil in kadai, add tempering items, then onion, ginger, green chillies and curry leaves , sauté till it is transparent. Add required water (oats requires less water compared to rava), add salt and close with lid, keep flame in medium. Once water starts boiling , add rava first, once it is half cooked, add oats and keep stirring till it is completely cooked and water is drained. Switch off burner and eat hot.
I have used cashews to enhance the look and taste, which is purely optional.
Tomato-coconut chutney is a good side dish for this ( posted separately).
