Curd oats recipe – Oatmeal in seasoned yogurt. A good and healthy recipe for the hot summer days. This curd oats can be prepared under 25 minutes and is best to serve right away after preparing it. If you are into eating oats regularly, this may be for you. But this is not a low fat recipe since a good amount of curd goes into making this.

This recipe is a variation of the traditional curd rice we make at home using homemade curd recipe.

Any kind of oats just work well in this recipe. But I suggest using rolled oats and avoid instant or quick cook oats as they are more processed and the glycemic index is high. There are 2 ways of making this recipe which I have shared below.

Curd oats recipe – Method 1

1. Add instant or rolled oats to a large bowl and add hot water just enough to moisten them. Set aside to cool completely. Since rolled oats are already steamed during processing, they can also be consumed without cooking. Add yogurt to the cooled oats. Season as mentioned below.

Method 2 – How to make curd oats

1. Add oats to a pot along with water. You can also dry roast the oats first.

2. Cook until done.

3. Cool it completely.

4. Add beaten curd, grated carrots, cucumber, raw onion (optional), chopped coriander leaves and salt. Raw onion is said to bring down the body heat, so you may consider adding it here during summer. Mix them up well.

5. You can skip the tempering, but it adds mild aroma. Heat oil in a pan,Allow mustard and cumin to crackle. Saute until the urad dal turns slightly golden.
