There are hundreds of options in oats what you can have as a breakfast food or even a proper healthy meal.

Some people prefer oats only with milk but I prefer both with milk as well as such meal cooked with vegetables. Although here not so many vegetables are added rather you can find plenty of potatoes in this potato oatmeal soup along with tomatoes and spices. You definitely came to know that because its name tells everything.
This potato oatmeal soup has its own taste because of various spices. But that does not mean this oatmeal soup is hard to cook rather I would say it is very simple and delicious soup what anybody will like.
Delicious soup & myself
When I am writing this post, it is actually raining outside so I wanted to make dal khichdi but I finally come up with a red lentil soup what I have just found better than this potato oatmeal soup (personal preference). I would definitely share that food too with my readers. But for this time, let’s talk about this oatmeal soup.
A few days back I have already shared another soup prepared with Oat and cheese. But that was not my favorite, that does not mean I did not like that soup. But if I compare both soups then I would prefer this potato oatmeal soup over oat soup with cheese.
Though I do not cook daily but I make mostly vegetarian soups or other snacks & starters because I started doing so when I was staying in Delhi away from my home for years. Most of the time when I cooked anything I made those in large quantity, so after having those often I used to skip my meals. Okay, that was my story what is yours?
Okay, now coming to potato oatmeal soup with tomatoes and spices

You just need to have oats, tomatoes, green peas, onion and spices (turmeric, mustard, fenugreek, nigella, cumin, and saunf) in your kitchen inventory. This soup is cooked with butter but you definitely can use oil to make this potato oatmeal with tomatoes and spices.

********** NATURE & FUN **********
It’s rainy season and in Kolkata, India we face heavy rain during the month of July and August. But rainfall starts little early from last days of June, so seasonal flowers start blooming accordingly. There are certain flowers bloom during these days and balsam & tuberose are most popular among those flowers. Here, tuberose has started blooming this year in our garden.
