This dish is one of my favorites and make it often whenever I have some soaked green gram, sprouts, chana or even moth beans.
Sometimes I run out of ideas to cook oats as we eat them so often. But this is one dish which can taste different each time if you change the legumes in the recipe.
Rolled oats: This recipe is best made with rolled oats as the quick cook oats turn soggy and sticky.
Green gram or moth beans : I make this recipe with both. The recipe works with any kind of cooked beans like rajma or chana. Just ensure you don’t cook the beans to a mushy texture.
The entire dish turns out grainy and non sticky. If you do not follow the recipe correctly you may end up with a mushy dish.
This dish is good to eat on its own without any side. But it goes very well with just a bowl of yogurt.

How to make the recipe
- To go ahead with the rolled oats recipe, first soak matki or green gram for at least 3 to 6 hours.
