Oats Rice

Oats Rice

My kids don’t like oats with milk so I generally used oats in flour form. But one day when I went for my grocery shopping I find oats quaker packet in which it is written oats for rice so I get that packet and made my regular rice with oats. Here I am using both in equal quantity. You can increase or decrease measure of oats according to tour taste.

Now I am using my rolled oats in place of this packet.


  1. Rice basmati 3/4 cup
  2. Rolled Oats 3/4 cup
  3. Water 2 1/2 cup
  1. Wash and soak oats and rice for half an hour. Drain it.
  2. Add water , drained rice and oats in microwave safe bowl for 15 minutes at high temperature.
  3. Serve warm with any veggie or dal of your choice. I served here with masoor dal.
  4. Soon I am going to post oats fried rice.
