Oats And Corn Khichdi

I am a person who like to have porridge in breakfast.This I have started 2 years back I normaly have porridge for my dreakfast with any cereals like oats, wheat, ragi . Normaly I used to take them with milk, honey and fruits. Being a spicy food lover I get bored with this sweet poridge and I tried to mix my cereals with Dal or sambar then I got this Idea of making upma and kichdi with my cereals and I like that taste.So that I change my breakfast some days spicy and some days sweet. In that arry of spicy poridge recipes this Spicy Oats And Corn Khichdi is my favorite breakfast. Hope you also like this version.
