I always love to eat any kind of muthia and so you will find many varieties on the blog like steamed and fried methi muthia, palak methi muthia, dudhi muthia.

You know that oats are rich in fiber which is good for your health. It is nutritious and healthy snack not only because we added oats, also we are using the steaming method over fried one.

Everyone should include oats in their diet. I usually make oatmeal and top with fruits and honey. This is the first time I am using oats in Indian recipe and it is just wow, simply yummy. I have used Tarla Dalal’s recipe.

After making this oats methi muthia, I am planning to make more Indian oats recipes not sure what dishes. What Indian recipes do you make using oats?
