Oats Khichdi/Porridge
Ever since Saffola has started to advertise in a big way by offering a recipe book, I have become a big fan of it. Although I have just tried the "Coconut oats burfi", would love to try other recipes as well from the book.
I love to include oats in one or the other form in the daily breakfast recipes and one such dish I had recently prepared was "Oats Khicdhi" with lots of vegetables.

Sure shot a good way to make a kids have oats as well as vegetables. This is one of the fav. of my husband and son. Here it goes.
