Recipe: Masala Oats

Recipe: Masala oats


Recently, I have come across many people who are starting their weight loss journey but are tired of eating bland, inedible food.


Chances are that during your weight loss journey,  you have been asked to stay away from sugars which means, your morning oats shouldn’t have any sweeteners – natural or artificial.

If you want to eat oats in the morning as a healthy breakfast, but you are so tired of the mushy texture without any flavour, you have to try this delicious recipe.



Oats are so beneficial for a healthy weight loss journey because:

  • They contain tons of fiber
  • They help balance your cholesterol
  • They make you feel full and energetic
  • And this recipe packs some veggies in it as well for micronutrients




Things you will need:

3 servings:


1 tablespoon oil

1 teaspoon cumin seeds

5-6 curry leaves (kadi patta)

1 medium onion chopped

1 medium tomato chopped

Handful of chopped spinach

2 cups oats

1 cup water

Salt to taste

½ teaspoon Turmeric

2 teaspoon Chilli powder


Cilantro to garnish

(optional) sev to garnish



  • Wash the oats 1-2 times in cold water and rinse
  • Add 1 cup of water and leave aside to soak
  • In a pan add oil, cumin seeds and curry leaves
  • When it starts splattering, add onions and saute
  • Once the onion is golden brown, add tomatoes and spinach
  • Cook for 1 min
  • Add in oats, salt and all the spices
  • Cover and cook until the oats are soft. The cooking should get rid of the slimy texture
  • Once cooked squeeze some lime to taste
  • Garnish with cilantro and sev
