Want to take a break from sweetened oats, then give this savory version a try. Oats, referred to as “Jaee” in Hindi are high in fiber, provide important proteins and are loaded with iron. It’s light and something that will keep you full until lunch. 

Oats poha or savory oats hash is a heart- healthy breakfast recipe, quick and simple enough for a busy morning. Prepared with just basic ingredients, it’s a well-rounded one pot healthy breakfast recipe – ready in 15 minutes! 

RECIPE DETAIL – Sprinkle oats with water until they are soft. Do not wash them, or you will end you with soggy oats. They should feel wet and soft. Set it aside and continue with rest of the recipe. I have used Old fashioned rolled oats for this recipe. 


Meanwhile saute veggies of your choice until tender. Since its a breakfast recipe, I have kept it pretty simple. My choice of veggies is just a starting point but you are welcome to add more veggies, cashews, peanuts and improvise to your liking. 

This recipe yields 4 modest servings but feel free to double the servings and enjoy it for lunch too. 

Treat yourself to a healthy breakfast that will brighten up your morning. A perfect accompaniment to your morning tea. Easy to make, yummy and full of flavor!
