Add onions and fry till they turn transparent. Meanwhile, rinse the oats in a colander under running water and drain up the entire water.
Once the onions are well fried add turmeric. If you prefer to use tomato you can add it now and fry till it turns mushy and reduce the flame to low.
Add the rinsed oats, sprinkle salt. mix well. Cover and cook for about 6 to 7 minutes. stirring occasionally till fully cooked.
If needed you can sprinkle little water, if you want it to be mushy.
