Blogging Marathon# 46: Week 2/ Day 2

Theme: Lemon/ Lime Recipes

Dish: Lemon Oats/ Oats Nimmakaya Pulihora

For the ‘Lemon/ Lime recipes‘ theme, I have a very simple and healthy dish with oats today. My husband is not a big fan of oats or may be I should he doesn’t like oats cooked in any way. But I like oats, both in savory & sweet preparations like this breakfast oats or this vegetable oats. I usually make these dishes for myself when my husband is traveling 🙂

Today’s recipe is a healthier alternate to Lemon rice/ Nimmakaya Pulihora. I can eat these lemon flavored oats any time of the day — filling breakfast or light lunch/ dinner. My peanut loving 2 year old loved it too.

  1. My husband also does not likes oats when cooked. He likes it as is for breakfast, but not in any cooked dishes. I am drooling looking at the pictures and this is such a quick dish to make.

  2. I tried upma with oats but some how I didn’t like that now going to try this. when we get bored with every day cereal can make like this nice one…

  3. Wow its good to see you make yourself such interesting ones and not diet when your hubby is out of town…:).I might mostly end up eating the bread..lol…very nice version with oats..

  4. I still can’t wrap my head around savory oats preparations but I am sure it was just as flavorful and delicious as the lemon rice version
