Semolina short noodles and Oats Pulao

Some people are reluctant to go with completely healthy diets like oats dish.   I mix in the healthy ingredients and no one would have even noticed it including my husband!  Ofcourse, he is never reluctant to eat my healthy dishes.    He would know it only when i tell him and kids also eat it.    We add lots of veggies in anything we make and my hubby is the one who usually helps me in the cutting.  He cuts them very nicely.  Thatz a great help for my morning cooking.    I wake up early and I start my cooking only after taking bath and it includes my simple morning pooja routine.   Without help, I cannot make it happen.. 

What you need?
(approx for 2 adults and 2 kids)

Roasted Semolina noodles - 3/4 cup (Semiya in Tamil)
Old flash Oats - 3/4 cup
Veggies of your choice carrots, beans, peas - 2 cups
Tomato/Red capsium - 2 (Optional)
Ginger gr chilli paste-1 tsp
spice powder - 1/2 tsp
asofoedita - 1/8 tsp
coriander leaves-few

Water- 2.5 cups

Tadka

Oil-2 Tbsp
mustard seeds-1/2 tsp, cumin seeds-1/8 tsp

How to make?

Do tadka, add spice powder,ginger gr chillies, asofoedita, add tomato paste if using, fry for 3 mins.

Add veggies, salt and water and let it boil

Add roasted semolina, mix well and cover for 10-15 mins on medium.  Time would depend on your stove.  Watch out. 

Just when you see the all the water is absorbed, add oat flakes, give a mix and turn off the stove, close the lid and let it all mix together for 10 mins.

All done.    You can skip the tomato/capsicum gridning if you dont need it.   It is flexible recipe.
