I have been getting so many requests from readers for variations of Masala Oats recipe that I had posted long back. Today I am sharing a recipe that I had tried few times so wanted to share it here. Recently I was given a huge batch of Murungakeerai / Drumstick leaves so I have been using it almost daily into the recipes I made. But I wanted to make a masala oats with greens which is definately a really healthy porridge that is so easy to make which is filling. I got to know that Murungakeerai/ Drumstick leaves is great to treat Vitamin D deficiency.
