Idli is a must breakfast in every household in south India, who cant say no this steamed cakes which are rich in carbohydrates and proteins. We usually make at least twice in a week and kids love this breakfast with peanut chutney and sambar. This time I came up with this delicious and healthy oats idly. During night time I make oats upma for me and to my husband instead of rice and it tastes awesome with mixed veggies and some sprinkled lemon juice. Oats are rich in anti-oxidants and rich in fibre and it has amazing components to reduce cholesterol. We make different types of oats like lemon rice,bisebelebath , dosa which I  have posted earlier. Yesterday I made oats idli thought to post on my blog.
