Being a vegetarian, it is quite difficult to get a healthy vegetarian breakfast when we travel. I generally prepare this oat mix so that I no need to struggle looking for vegetarian breakfasts in the morning.  This mix is also ideal for those who prefer to have some snacks in the evening while working in office. All we need is a cup of hot water and coffee mug and we get this healthy dish ready in 2 minutes.
Since I do not prefer my breakfast to be too spicy, I have not added too much of spice to this dish. You may increase the spice levels if you wish too. I had tried mixing various combination of spices like Sambar Powder,Rasam Powderand plain chili powder, however I felt rasam powder was the best as it gave the soupy taste to this dish.
The mix must be stored in airtight container after it cools down to room temperature. For very cold climates or places where aircon is running continuously it stays between 7 to 10 days outside the refrigerator while for very hot climates it stays between 4 to 5 days.

2 minutes Vegetable Oats mix

Recipe: 2 Minute Vegetable Oat Mix
Preparation Time : 15 mins
Marination: 1 hr
Baking Time: 20 minutes
Yields : 2 Cups
Oven Temperature : 180 deg c

Quick or Instant Oats – 2 cups
Carrot - 1/3 Cup
Beans - 1/3 Cup
Capsicum - 1/3 cup
Garlic - 1 clove (Optional)
Oil – 1 tsp
Salt – to taste
Rasam Powder – 1 tsp
Aluminium foil – to cover the tray

1.       Take an oven tray and cover it up with aluminum foil.
2.       Add all the vegetables. I choose carrot, capsicum, beans. You can choose any vegetables except tomato, cucumber or those which gives too much water after cutting. Do not add spinach.
3.       Add oats, rasam powder, salt and oil.
4.       Mix them well
5.       Let this marinate for an hour at least. You can marinate it up to 3 hours also.
6.       After 1 hour, pre heat oven and let this cook for a total of 18 – 20 minutes.
7.       The oats and all vegetables would turn crispy, that is the correct time to switch off.
8.       Take out and allow it to cool to room temperature. Store them in an airtight container.
9.       To serve, take the desired quantity in a cup and pour hot water. Close it for 2 minutes and consume.

Do not add leafy vegetables.
Do not add vegetables which gives more water like cucumber, tomato, bottle guard.
Onion cooks much faster than the rest hence do not add onion’s as the main vegetable. Add them in equal parts like other vegetables. If you are a beginner, I would suggest you to avoid it.
Capsicum gives a good flavor hence do not omit. However it is not a mandatory vegetable.
The spice quantity mentioned is not too spicy as I do not prefer to eat very spicy in the early morning. You may alter the spice levels.
You may add garam masala and garlic too.

1 tsp = 5ml
1 tblsp – 15 ml
1 cup = 200 ml
