This Oats Poha recipe is truly a wholesome, tasty healthy and a quick breakfast recipe. Oats are one of the healthiest grains that are gluten free, and are a great source of protein, vitamins, minerals, fibre and antioxidants.

I have used instant oats here but you can also replace them with rolled/ steel cut oats. Oats have low glycemic index that will keep you full for a longer time and also aid in weight management.

This Oats Onion Poha is made in a similar way as any regular flattened rice poha recipe so you can use your own variations when adding the vegetables and spices to this Oats Poha recipe.

Ingredients

Direction:

  • Take 1 cup of oats in a bowl. Add just enough water to soak the oats and make them soft but not mushy. Drain off any excess water from the oats and keep them aside.
