Are you tired of eating oats the same way with milk or water or with fruits or yogurt ??? Try this recipe , you are going to love it . At present , I’m in a weight loss mission !! Being a foodie , I get demotivated so easily . So in order to make this journey an adventurous and smooth one , I do experiment with the foods that can satisfy you without compromising the calories .
Egg fried Oats with veggies is just one of them . My recipe is inspired by one of my very favorite virtual Aunts Suronjona Maya’s Oats Pilaf .
I added , omit few things . The quantity mentioned in the recipe is for 2 servings , each serving contains no more than 170 calorie . But If you like you can take the full containing not more than 340 Calories . Cool , isn’t it??
1/2 cup oats ( old fashioned)
2/3 rd cup Water/ chicken stock ( if you don’t have chicken stock replace it with 1 tea spoon chicken powder/ chicken bouillon )
2/3 rd cup cabbage , broccoli , carrot ( steamed or microwaved)
1/4 th cup green Peas
1 egg beaten
1 tbl spoon olive oil
green chilies chopped
1/2 tea spoon turmeric ( optional)
1. Dry roast the oats , until fragrant . Keep it aside .
2. Heat oil and add the onion and green chilies and fry . Now add the beaten egg . Scramble the egg . Add turmeric . Add the steamed veggies .
3. Add the oats . Add the chicken powder . Now add the water slowly . Those who are using instant oats , may not need this amount of water .
4. When the oats are moist and done , your fried rice style oats is ready ..
Since I used chicken bouillon/ chicken powder , I din’t add any extra salt . Same goes with chicken stock . Try to consume less sodium , if you are in a weight loss mission . 😀
