Thayir Oats/Curd Oats – Oats with Yogurt Recipe

Thayir oats is nothing but curd rice version in oats. It is one of my favourite comforting food and great to have during summer. In South India, thayir sadam is generally served at the end of the meal. It is also offered as neivedhyam in temples and distributed as prasadam to everyone. When making curd rice, we usually do not add onions, but here I have added onions for extra taste. You can very well skip the onions and make the Thayir Oats as well. Do try out this healthy Thayir oats and post your comments here. Meanwhile do check out other interesting Oats Recipes and other Breakfast recipes here.

Boil water in a sauce pan. Add oats, salt and mix really well.

Cook the oats for about 5-6 minutes or until the oats is completely cooked.

Switch off the stove, transfer the cooked oats to a bowl and let it cool completely.

Now add the milk and yogurt to oats and mix really well.

Adjust the amount of salt at this stage.

Heat oil in a small kadai/pan, splutter mustard seeds, then add cumin seeds, Bengal gram, asafoetida and curry leaves.

When dal changes to golden color and the curry leaves turn crispy, add the chopped onions, green chillies, chopped ginger and fry well. Now switch off the stove.
