Oats Upma

Another healthy innovation. I had this for dinner today.

This is where I took the recipe from here

Oats Upma Ingredients: (serves 2)
  • Oats – 1 Cup (e.g., Quaker Oats)
  • Finely Chopped Onion – 1
  • Chopped Green Chillies – 1
  • Oil – 1 and 1/2 tsp
  • Mustard Seeds – 1/2 tsp
  • Urad Dal or Split Black Bean (Gram) / White Lentils – 1/2 tsp
  • Curry Leaves
  • Turmeric Powder – 1/4 tsp
  • Sugar – 1/4 tsp
  • Lemon Juice – 1 tsp
  • Coriander Leaves / Cilantro
  • Salt

Time to Prepare: 15 min

How to Make Oats Upma :

1. Heat Oil in pan, add Mustard Seeds, once the Mustard Seeds splutter, add Urad Dal (White Lentils) and fry until they turn golden brown.

2. Now add Curry Leaves and chopped Green Chillies and fry for a minute. Then add chopped Onions and Turmeric Powder and fry until the Onions start to look a little transparent.

3. Add Salt and Sugar to the the above mixture and fry for a minute.

4. At this stage, add Oats to the pan and fry for 2-3 minutes or till you smell a nice aroma and Oats turn light brown in color.

5. Now sprinkle about 1/2 to 3/4 cup of water to the above fried Oats mixture in the pan and mix well all the ingredients with a spatulla and fry till the Oats turn soft. Make sure to not add excess water to the Oats Upma as the whole mixture can become too soggy and Oats Upma may not taste as good as it should.

6. Add Lemon Juice to the Oats Upma and mix well. Garnish with Coriander Leaves / Cilantro.
