Oats Upama | Oats Khichdi | Masala Oats Porridge

Oats have become my recent fixation.
They are quick to make, healthy to eat and tasty to palates when you make a salty porridge.
They are also excellent to fill your stomach before dinner and prevents you from eating any other junk food.
I would recommend everybody to include Oats in your monthly Grocery Shopping. With the Quacker Oats or Kellogs Oats available so easily,I wish even the office cafetaria, hotels & restaurants start including it in their Menu.
Unquestionably, it is not going to effect their Budget in any way.Infact, it will be a good strategy to draw more customers and score more over their competitors.
