  1. Hi Kamala
    Wanted to share a recipe with you. Last week I was faced with task of make a full idli,pongal breakfast for 12 folks. I had only 45 mins and realized I only had 1 cup of coconut shredded. So in desperation I improvised with 1 cup of oatmeal added to the coconut and a handful of peanuts and potty kadalai and ground everything with green chillies and salt. I the seasoned it the usual way. Honestly it did not taste any different from the normal coconut chutney and nobody knew they were eating healthy. Also made brown rice pongal which also tasted normal and fine
    in short another use for oatmeal. And healthier rice to eat!!
