Easy cooking ideas for singles #4
It is day 4 of easy cooking ideas for singles and the recipe for today is a healthy Oatmeal Porridge (not sweet mind you). I follow the dictum of “Breakfast like a King, Lunch like a Prince, and Dine like a Pauper” to the T. Breakfast for me is the most important meal of the day. I cannot do without breakfast. Lunch for me is not very heavy either- a simple vegetable and a cup of yoghurt is what I eat. And dinner has to be very light and early. I love the oatmeal porridge (daliya) that I have on most, week nights.
It is a very nutritious and protein rich meal in itself. Just dry roast the wheat oatmeal and add it to sautéed and boiled vegetables.
Oatmeal Porridge or Daliya
1 small cup Oatmeal (wheat daliya)
3 cups water
1 onion chopped
1 potato chopped
1 tomato chopped
2 tbsp green peas
4 French beans
2 green chillies slit
Salt to taste
1 tsp Chilli powder
1 tsp olive oil
Coriander leaves to garnish
In a kadhai (wok) dry roast the oatmeal and keep aside. Add the onion, green chillies, potato and green peas and sauté. (You can add any vegetables of your choice. I usually add carrot and beans but I had run out of them last night.) I usually make do with what I have. Once the veggies are a bit done, add the salt, chilli powder and the water. Once the water comes to a boil, add the roasted oatmeal and stir. I don’t like it very thick as I like to have it slurpy in a bowl. Add coriander and your dinner is ready to eat.
Now isn’t that a real easy and healthy cooking idea for singles?
