OATS UPMA

INDIAN DIET RECIPES

After trying out Instant Oats Idli , i wanted to explore more Indian version of Oats recipes. I tried out this Oats Upma for a weeknight dinner for myself ,and i liked it too. so after 2 days i made the Oats Upma again for me and my hubby. We both liked it and  yesterday when i made the Oats Upma again i clicked the pictures too. This Upma is made in a jiffy and to be more honest , it tasted pretty good . So over to the recipe of Oats Upma:
INGREDIENTS:

OATS(QUICK COOKING OATS) 3/4 CUP
WATER 1/4 CUP – 1/2 CUP
ONION 1
CARROT(CHOPPED FINELY) 2-3 TBLSP

MUSTARD 1/4 TSP
TURMERIC POWDER A PINCH
URAD DAL 1/4 TSP

METHOD:

  • Dry roast the oats for few minutes without getting it burnt.

step 1

  • Chop the onions finely and slit the green chilli.
  • In a pan, add oil and add the mustard seeds, urad dal, green chilli, ginger and when the mustard splutters and the urad dal changes color add the onions, followed by that add carrots, and curry leaves and asafoetida. Saute well and add salt.
Step 3 Step 4
  • Once the onions becomes translucent add the roasted Oats and sprinkle with 1/4 cup of water.
  • Close the lid and cook for 1- 2 minutes in a low flame.  Take out the lid and mix it again, if you  feel it is dry just sprinkle 2-3 tblsp of water and mix well. Keep in the flame for few minutes and switch off the flame.

CaN the oats be ground to coarse powder like the regular upma, so tht it is a texture suitable for kids? Have you tried it that way?
