Oats is very healthy and its useful and easy digestive. Oats contain beta-glucans, a type of soluble fibre that slows down the absorption of carbohydrates into the bloodstream. This slower digestion prevents dramatic spikes in blood sugar and insulin levels that would otherwise encourage our bodies to produce and store fat. So I thought to make different varieties of oats recipes ..Oats rava idly is a stand by when i do not have stock of idli dosa batter but prefer to eat idli. Kids will surely love this fluffy soft idly.. Its a perfect blend of oats and grains that you can make for a weekday breakfast or its perfect for ur kids tiffin …. My daughter love it
