• Sour and ripe tomatoes are ideal for this recipe. If the tomatoes are not sour,you may squeeze in a little lemon juice.

A few more ideas:

• If you are planning to eat the oats immediately while hot, you can cook it to thick consistency. However it is better to keep it to a thin and flowing consistency if you are packing it in the lunchbox. If it is packed in a thick consistency, it tends to become like a thick cold lump.
