Thayir Oats

Thayir sadam literally means curd rice or yogurt rice.  Typically in any South-Indian meal, thayir sadam is served at the end. It is also offered to god and served as prasadam in temples.

Thayir sadam is my favorite comfort food of all. It is usually made with already cooked rice and yogurt which is seasoned with mustard seeds, green chilies, curry leaves, bengal gram, asafoetida, pomogranate and grapes.  The recipe below has a little twist to it. Instead of rice, I used oats in preparing this recipe.

Cooking time : 30 min | Serves: 2


1 cup Traditional oats
2 cups Yogurt
1 cup water

For seasoning
2 tsp Oil
1 tsp Mustard seeds
1 tsp Bengal gram 
1 sprig of curry leaves
2 Green chilies, finely chopped
1 Red Chilies
1 tsp Ginger, grated
2-3 sprigs of Cilantro


  • Boil water in a large pot. Add oats and stir well. Cook for 5 minutes until oats are completely cooked and water completely reduces. Cool this mixture completely

  • Now heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds, Bengal gram, red chilies and curry leaves. When it starts to sizzle, pour the seasoning to the cooled cooked oats
  • Add yogurt, freshly grated ginger, cilantro, green chilies and adjust salt as per taste. Mix well

  • Serve with lemon or mango pickle (optional)
