About Overnight Curd Oats in a Jar Recipe

I am a big fan of oats and I usually like to start my day with a jar of overnight oats with milk, fruits, nuts and berries. No cooking and easy breakfast is what makes overnight oats in a jar really interesting. So one day I thought why not try out a savory version of the overnight oats and I came up with the overnight curd oats in a jar. This is inspired from the popular South Indian dish called Curd rice.

How to make Overnight Curd Oats in a Jar

  1. Take a clean jar with a lid. I love using empty nutella jars for my overnight oats.
  2. Mix curd with some milk and add it to the oats.
  3. Prepare the tadka by heating oil in a pan and adding the mustard seeds, cumin seeds, urad dal, green chili, onion, curry leaves, ginger and coriander leaves.
  4. Pour the tempering over the oats curd and mix well.
  5. Transfer the curd oats into the jar and refrigerate it overnight.
  6. Your overnight will be ready to enjoy in the morning. Garnish with pomegranate seeds and some pickle and enjoy.

My Tip:

You can adjust the amount of curd and milk according to the consistency you want. If you find the oats soaked up most of the liquid over night, simply add a little milk or curd in the morning and give it a mix.
