Oats Upma

Oats is very healthy. Making Oats a part of your daily diet provides many health benefits. It helps in reducing blood sugar levels, cholestrol levels and helps in weight control as well. Oats upma is very easy and preparation is similar and simple as any other upma. I added vegetables with the oats which made the upma more tasty and nutritious. This is a great hit at my home.


Oats - 1 cup  (I used Quaker oats, Old fashioned)
Onion - 1 small , finely chopped
Vegetables - 1/2 cup (I used peas, carrots, corn)
Ginger - 1/2" pc, finely chopped
Green chillies - 2 , finely chopped
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
Water - 2 cups

In a pan, roast the oats without adding any oil. Roast for a few minutes, until nice aroma comes. Oats should become slight brown. Keep aside the roasted oats.
Now, in the same pan, heat the oil. Add mustard seeds followed by cumin seeds.
When they finish popping, add green chillies and ginger. Saute them for a minute.
Now add the onion and saute them until the onion becomes transparent. Add vegetables.
When the vegetables are done, add water. When the water starts boiling, add salt.
Mix well and now add the roasted oats. Stir well and reduce the heat.
Cover the pan with a lid and allow the oats to cook.
Cook until oats become very soft and no water is left.

Serves 2-3

*You can add cashews or peanuts and roast it before adding the onions.
