Oats and Aubergine – Savoury Porridge/Vangibath

Oats Aubergine2


To someone who has never tried making or eating savory oats, they might sound a little strange. Usually, when we think of oatmeal or porridge, we see sweet fruits and spices folded into the creamy grains. But, believe me, savory oats hit a spot of filling satisfaction that sometimes the sweeter can’t really give. I love to incorporate veggies into mine to bring it full circle.

This dish is similar to Vangibath, south Indian breakfast dish.
