    I heard Oats is good for reducing cholesterol. I want to know simple recipes for oats.

    Also does anybody know what needs to be included in daily food(Indian) that reduces or is free off cholesterol?

    The recipe I follow to make oats porridge is very simple...try this.

    1 cup - Oats
    1/2 cup - water
    1 cup - ordinary milk
    1 cup - condensed milk
    Salt to taste
    1/4 cup sugar
    1 dash cinnamon
    1 dash elaichi powder

    How to Cook?
    1. Soak oats overnight in 1/2 cup water.
    2. Bring to boil 1/2 cup of water. Add salt.
    3. Slowly add soaked oats to boiling water.
    4. Stir oats in boiling water. Bring oats and water to a boil.

    What is Sabhudana?

    I recently came across a recipe in a monthly family magazine called 'sabudhana kichadi'

    The recipe was more like a normal rava kichadi, except for what was mentioned about sabudhana. It was asked to be soaked and cooked with the vegetables.

    Is this wheat rava? Does anyone here know what it is?

    Sabudhana is sago

    Hi Malar,

    Sabudhana is nothing but Sago; It is not wheat rava.
    To cook sago/sabudhana, you need to soak it for 1 - 2 hours.
    Too much of soaking will also cause sago to melt and when you cook it will absorb too much of oil.

    Sabudhana kichadi is more like a tiffen item. Cooked with all vegetables it will taste like rava kichadi and children will love it.

    If you are interested, I will also let you know about sabudhana vada. That is very easy too.

    Sabudhana

    Hi Roshni,

    Thanks for clarifying about Sabudhana. It was quiet sometime since I logged in and got to see your messages. Sure, I'm interested in knowing the recipe for sabudhana vada. Please share the same.

    I normally use sago once in a while to make payasam (more like a kheer). I also make a porridge kind of for my kid, whey she is down with fever. Adding buttermilk to the porridge it tastes good at the time of sickness.

    Sabhudana Vada

    Ingredients:

    Sabhudhana (Sago) - 1 cup
    Ginger Garlic paste - 2 tsp
    Green Chillies - 4 nos (grind it into a paste)
    Potatoes - 2 nos. (boiled and mashed)
    Groundnuts Powdered - 1/4 cup
    Salt to taste
    Oil for frying

    Method:

    Soak saboodhana for 8 hours (or overnight if you want to prepare it in the morning). Strain water from the saboodhana and add the mashed potatoes, green chilli paste, ginger garlic paste, salt, powdered groundnuts and mix it well. Let the mixture be firm and tight.

    Heat oil in a Kadai and take the batter little and flatten it like a vada and fry in the oil. Let the vada get slightly cooked and then add the next Vada.
    This vada will be crisp outside and soft inside.

    Note: Vadas can stick when you try frying 2 or 3 at the same time. So care should be taken to add one by one after it is cooked.
    Also, if you feel it is absorbing too much of oil, add 1/2 cup rice flour to the mixture.

    Hope you like this vada.

    Hi Nancy,

    I am glad that you liked the porridge recipe.
    "1 dash" is similar to saying a pinch or sprinkle.
