MW Okra & Oats Sabji

If u searching something which get ready within few minutes as side dish for ur rotis, u should definitely give a try to this simple, quick, nutritious, healthy and prefect side dish for rotis..This sabji is definitely a delicious dish in which i combined rolled oats to give them more taste, as it my way of adding healthy stuffs even in a simple sabji..Adding oats to the side dish like this, will definitely go for less oil and the rolled oats gets crispy once they get cooked along with veggies... Its one of my secret of cooking to increase the quantity of dishes whenever i have less veggies to cook for..With a 3/4cup of chopped veggies and rolled oats, u will get approximately a whole cup of sabji, also its quite a best way to add oats in our menu, anyhow the cooking time depends upon the microwave oven u r using for..

Okra & Oats Sabji


2cups Okra (chopped)
1no Onion (chopped)
1no Tomato (chopped)
3/4tsp Red chilly powder
1/4cup Rolled Oats
1/2tsp Cumin seed powder
1/2tsp Cumin seeds for tempering
1/4tsp Turmeric powder
1/2tsp Coriander powder
Few curry leaves
Salt
1tbsp Oil

Heat the oil along with cumin seeds in high for 2minutes in microwave safe bowl in microwave oven, add immediately the chopped onions, chopped tomatoes, curry leaves with salt and cook for 5 minutes in high (stir in between)..now add the chopped okra pieces to the veggies cook for 3minutes in high, take out the bowl and add the red chilly powder, cumin seed powder, turmeric powder, coriander powder (check for salt),stir well..cook again everything in high for 5 minutes until the veggies get well cooked, finally add the rolled oats to the almost cooked veggies, stir well and cook for 3minutes..

Serve hot as side dish with rotis..
