Oats,Mixed Veggies & Moongdal Khichdi

Its been a long, i posted foods prepared with my favourite grain 'Oats', here is my recent comforting and favourite food i prepared just for our lunch yesterday. Usually i make this type of dal khichdi with rice and dals whenever i feel lazy to cook as it goes for quick and easy breezy preparation. This time i combined veggies, oats together in this dal khichdi and used cooked moongdal instead of toordal or masoor dal.You can simply have this nutritious,filling and colourful khichi  with a pickle or else with few fried papads. You can also replace the oats with wheat rava, quinoa or brown rice for preparing the same khichdi if you dont want to prepare them with oats.

This nutritious khichdi suits prefectly for breakfast,lunch and for dinner too.As i used moongdal and whole black peppers in this healthy khichdi,am sending this wonderful dish to Kalyani's Magic Mingle,Ramadan Friendly Recipes by Halal Foodie and to my own event Healthy Diet-Cooking with Whole grains guest hosted by Jaya.

1cup Rolled oats
1/2cup Cooked yellow moongdal
1cup Mixed veggies (carrots,beans,bellpeppers,peas)
1no Onion (chopped)
1tsp Ginger (grated)
1tsp Garlic (chopped)
1tsp Mustard seeds+Cumin seeds
1no Green chillies (slit opened)
10nos Whole black peppers
Few curry leaves
1/4tsp Turmeric powder
1no Bay leaves

Heat enough oil, fry the mustard seeds,cumin seeds and bay leaves, add immediately the chopped onions,slit opened green chillies,grated ginger,curryleaves and chopped garlic, cook until the onions turns transculent.

Now add the mixed veggies,whole black peppers, turmeric powder and salt,cook for few seconds, add two cups of water,cooked moongdal and bring to boil.

Meanwhile dry roast the rolled oats and keep aside.

Add the roasted oats to the boiling water,stir well and cook for few minutes, put off the stove and dont disturn for few seconds.

Serve hot with pickles or papads.
