Vegetables to add in Masala Oats Recipe
I take long time to pick up vegetables as it is my favorite way to pass time! Almost every day I go out to buy vegetables. To buy vegetables is the stress buster for me First I take a round of the vegetable market then get the ones which are very tempting, for the same reason I prefer to make this masala oats recipe with fresh juicy vegetables. I have added some nice bell pepper, carrot, beans, fresh cherry tomatoes. You can add any types of vegetables like shredded cabbage, spinach, green onion, bottle gourd, sometimes I even add grated fresh turmeric (kachi haldi) and even gooseberries (amla).
Tomato and coriander is the essential ingredient which gives nice taste to this recipe. Yesterday I bought some cherry tomatoes to add it in salad but I used some of them in my masala oats recipe. I have added lemon juice to give a tang to this recipe as cherry tomatoes are sweet as compared to other tomatoes . The sweet and sour taste of tomatoes and lemon made this recipe awesome. Well normal variety of tomatoes can also be used to make this recipe. Sometimes I also add desi tomatoes in masala oats it gives nice sour taste t0 it.

My attempt at your Masala oats. I included a link to a Google photo but there was an error in submitting my comment so I removed it.
I made your recipe following it exactly using standard US measuring spoons; it was not too nice and there was too much turmeric. Please try it again. Also it takes 35 minutes which I think is too long.
Omg! Loving the recipe sooo much
