But as Agatha Christie once quoted, “To every problem, there is a most simple solution.”, here’s an unbelievably healthy and tasty solution to this!

The years we spent investing in our education were great; not only because we had limited tasks to do, but also because we had the privilege of getting healthy, wholesome meals at home! Now that we have started working towards our careers and living all by ourselves, the same ‘healthy, wholesome meals’ have become a thing we really crave, and we cannot deny that.

Presenting the super easy and downright delicious…



All you need:

Oats – 1 Cup

Water – 1 Cup

Peas – 1/2 Cup

Carrot – 1/2 Cup chopped

Garam masala – 1 Teaspoon

Chili powder – 1 Teaspoon

Salt – 1 Teaspoon

Turmeric – 1 Teaspoon

Corn – 2 Teaspoons

Garlic – Fried, 2 teaspoons

Coriander – For garnish

Spring onions – 2 Teaspoons


1. Cook oats in water. 

2. Add the spices and vegetables and bring the mix to a boil.

3. Transfer this into a bowl and garnish with corn, fried garlic, coriander and spring onions.
