Oats Spiced Buttermilk / Oats Buttermilk Porridge/Congee

Oats Spiced buttermilk / Oats Buttermilk Porridge, first Oats recipe in My space. Before My marriage because of some health issue i gained my weight little more. So Dr. advised to reduce weight and to follow strict diet, no junk foods, no deep fried snacks, no chocolate, ice creams, sweets n the list was too big n its all my fav :( But at the same time my health is also more important to me, so i sacrificed everything and about for a year n half i was in strict diet, medications n regular exercises. Only That time i was introduced to Oats n Oats recipes by dietitian. And this Oats Moor Congee was also taught by her. I used to take this for my breakfast, very simple healthy n filling recipe. A glass of this congee n a desired choice of fruit is enough to start your day in a healthy way.
As i was taking this for long time in daily basis, almost a year so i got strong aversion towards Oats n stopped adding oats to my diet in any form. More than 2-3 yrs i stopped it n recently felt that my aversion towards oats was reduced n started including it Weekly once or twice in idly, adai n paniyaram form(posting it soon). After a very very long time Friday made this Mooru congee for my breakfast n really loved it. And also wanted to share this healthy recipe with u. Now to the recipe...

Ingredients
  1. Oats     1/4 cup (i used Quaker old fashioned)
  2. Yogurt/curd        1/4 cup (i used low fat)
  3. Water       2 cups or as needed
  4. Cumin seeds      1/8 tsp
  5. Hing        a pinch
  6. Cilantro      4-5sprigs
  7. Ginger       1" piece
  8. Green chili     1 no.(optional)
  9. Curry leaves      few
  10. Pearl Onions       4-5( peeled n thinly chopped)
  11. Salt    to taste
Method
  • First make spiced buttermilk/Neer Moor, take a bowl add curd n churn it for a minute then add 1-2 cups of water and churn it well till frothy or simply pulse it in a blender for few seconds.
  • To this buttermilk, add pounded ginger, chili, cilantro,curry leaves, n enough salt, hing n cumin seeds.
  • Mix everything well and keep aside for 10-15 minutes or more.
  • Then take a microwave safe bowl, add oats n enough water to cook oats n microwave cook for 2 minutes.
  • Once done, remove from the MW oven and mash it well using spoon n allow to cool for a while.
  • After that add already prepared spiced buttermilk, n add finely chopped pearl onions mix well...adjust salt n water to desired taste.
  • That's it healthy n tasty Oats Spiced Buttermilk ready.

Notes:
For a quicker version, in a blender add curd, cooked oats,chili, ginger, hing n salt pulse it for few seconds, add water to desired consistency. top it with sliced onions n have it.
But the freshly churned buttermilk gives u unique taste n flavor to this congee than the blended one.
