Oats Khichdi vegetarian meal for weight loss
How This Helps
Useful for : weight loss, altered lipid profile, diabetes, high protein vegetarian meal
Oats are extremely high in fibre and combining it with a pulse also helps us give good quality proteins. This is a very easy to prepare breakfast recipe that gives us a break from our regular oats porridge. Adding vegetables to it makes it rich in vitamin and minerals too. I prefer adding the vegetable stalk instead of water to cook oats so that we do not lose water soluble vitamin too.
