Oats Upma




Oats - 1 cup

Oil - 1 tsp.

Ginger - 1/2 tsp. finely chopped
Coriander leaves - 2 tsp.

Mustard - 1/2 tsp.
Urid dhall - 1/2 tsp.
Curry Leaves - 1 spring


  1. Dry roast the oats until it gives a good aroma. Do not over burn it.
  2. Chop onions and green chillies finely.
  3. Heat oil in a pan and season it with the seasoning ingredients.
  4. Add Onions, ginger and green chillies and saute until onions become translucent and all the raw smell disappears.
  5. Add salt and saute for a minute.
  6. Add oats and saute well for 2 minutes and it smells good.
  7. Sprinkle water little by little to ensure that oats doesn't become soggy.
  8. Add lime juice and garnish with coriander leaves.

  • Do not add more water since oats will become very soggy. The first time I made I added lots of water and it became soggy. So sprinkle water little by little.
