Masala Oats

Over the past few decades, oats has become a very popular “health food”. We commonly have it as porridge, and these days many of us even go for “overnight oats” or instant masala oats, which are often purchased from stores and prepared within minutes at home. Why store-bought ones when the same can be made at home, “INSTANT”-ly.
