Curd (Yogurt) rice is a favorite dish for all south Indians. In most South Indian homes, it is part of everyday meal. After a spicy meal, having some cool curd rice is very satisfying.During summers, I really enjoy curd dishes as a full meal whenever I get a chance.  I also already shared some dishes like the curd rice, curd semiya and curd idli. Oats with curd is another healthy variation of curd rice, made with oatmeal.

It is better to include some healthy grains like oats, millets and quinoa at least 2-3 times in a week to your meal. Oats is high in proteins, fiber and reduces cholesterol. In foreign countries, oatmeal is often served in sweet form. I have already shared apple cinnamon oats. In India, people enjoy savory oats equally. Do check out my other savory oats recipes - oats soup, bisi bele oats and oats dosa. Curd oats is another savory variation which has the tangy taste form yogurt and the flavor of an aromatic seasoning. Kids and adults will surely enjoy this curd oats. Even those who do not like oats may change their mind on tasting this curd oats.
