Urban Platter Oats Online
Oat is a common cereal grain grown for its seeds. These seeds are what we know and consume as Oats. While oats can be consumed whole (known as groats), they take a long time to cook. This is why most people prefer rolled or steel cut oats.
Rolled or crushed oats are made by oat groats that’s have been dehusked and steamed before being rolled or pressed under large steel rollers and toasted. The end results are dry, flattened oats that can be used to make popular breakfast dishes such as oatmeal, porridge, granola and muesli. They can also be added to cakes, muffins, cookies and breads for added flavour and texture. Because rolled oats can be prepared with relative ease and a short time, they are also known as quick or instant oats.
To produce steel-cut oats, the groats are chopped using large steel blades. They have a coarser texture, are chewier and nuttier than rolled oats. Steel cut oats also take longer to cook.
Oats are also some of the healthiest grains on the planet. Oatmeal is gluten-free, nutritionally rich, contains more protein than most grains, lots of vitamins & minerals and is packed with fibre and even antioxidants. It promotes better gut health, low cholesterol, improved heart functions, weight control and can also help fight or control diabetes. It’s no wonder then, that doctors and nutritionists are always recommending oats. Oats also make a great replacement for wheat flour for people who are sensitive or allergic to wheat gluten or have celiac disease.
Oats are also surprisingly easy to use. Soak oats in a bowl of milk (bonus points for using Oat or Almond Milk) overnight in a fridge and you’ll have a ready-to-eat breakfast in the morning. Combine your oats with yoghurt, fresh fruits like apples, bananas, berries, kiwi, etc., dried fruits – raisins, currants, prunes, etc. and nuts like almonds, cashews, walnuts (the key is to mix & match to your taste) to make a muesli dish that packs more flavour, texture and most importantly more energy than your run-of-the-mill energy drinks out there. Sweeten your dish with alternative such as Date Syrup, Tapioca Syrup, Jaggery, Coconut Jaggery, Brown Rice Syrup etc. for added flavours without compromising on health.
Beyond breakfast, oats can be used as a replacement for a portion of breadcrumbs in your patties and cutlets, make for delightfully crunchy additions to cookies, cakes, muffins, breads & crumbles, and can also add some body to your pancakes when blended into the batter.
