oats-vegetable-upma

After all these festivals and all these cooking plus Vj’s busy office schedule, I failed to keep track of my weight. No proper workouts that I do usually too. So after a month when I saw my weight I was plus 2 kg. So I thought its high time to get back to tract and wanted first to cut down my rice intake. I love oats and make few dishes out of it, as you can check it here in my Indian style oats recipes page. Only thing I must want everything hot, whatever it is I can eat. And this upma is one I often make but never thought of blogging about it here. But I cheat sometimes making it without vegetables. But Its always better to add few vegetables, to make it healthy and tasty too. But such simple and easy recipe you can make it for yourself. I had with fresh squeezed orange juice. And here is the cute napkin you gave Sharmi, atlast I used it properly and thanks for the same :)

Oats upma recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Breakfast
Prep Time: 10 mins    |  Cook time: 15 mins    Serves: 1

Ingredients

Quick cook oats - 1 cup

Onion - 1

Mixed vegetables - 3/4 cup

Green chilli - 3

Water - 1/2 cup

Salt - As needed

Coconut oil/ sesame oil - 1 tsp


To temper

Oil - 2 tsp

Mustard - 3/4 tsp

Urad dal - 1 tsp

Channa dal - 2 tsp

Curry leaves - 1 sprig


Method

  1. Chop vegetables and onion finely. I used half a carrot, 4 beans and a fist full of forzen peas. slit green chillies. Heat oil in a pan and temper with the items given under ‘To temper’ table, then add onion and fry until transparent. Add vegetables, green chillies and if you want you can sprinkle 1/4 tsp sugar to maintain its  colour and fry in medium flame for 2 minutes. Add a little salt just for the vegetables if you want.
  2. 1-oats-upma
  3. Add the oats, salt and mix well for a minute. Add 1/4 cup water and mix well and cook covered for 2 minutes.
  4. 2-oats-upma
  5. Later again sprinkle the remaining water and mix well and cook covered for another 2 minutes. This way it wont turn too gooey but still gets cooked moist. Top with coconut oil or sesame oil if desired.
  6. 3-oats-upma

Notes

  • You can add your own choice of vegetables, just make sure you chop finely to make sure it gets cooked.
  • You can add finely chopped ginger along with onion to make it flavourful and easy to digest.
  • You can add turmeric if you want to make it look yellow.
Always eat hot immediately. I have it as such, if you want you can eat it with any chutney or sambar.

  20. Nice recipe! looks very delicious and healthy.. one question, you have mentioned that you used instant oats, I usually buy normal (non instant version) oats from Quaker. In that case will the same amount of water be enough? and are there any other changes that I need to make to the above recipe? Please clarify. Thanks
