Recipe for Oats Upma
(Adapted from the suggestion on the cover of the rolled oats brand I usually purchase)
Rolled oats – 1 cup, roasted without oil till stiff (about 4-5minutes) on medium flame
Water – 2 cups
Onion – 1/4 cup chopped fine
Green chilli – 1 small (this one is real hot!), chopped fine
Curry leaves – few, chopped fine
Ginger – 1″, chopped fine
Sesame oil (preferably) – 1 tbsp.
Mustard seeds – 1 tsp.
Bengalgram/Chana dal – 1/2 tsp.
Black gram/ Urad dal – 1/2 tsp.
Groundnuts/ Moongphali – 1 tbsp.
Heat oil. Splutter the seasonings one by one and wait for the peanuts to turn pink and crisp.
Add the curry leaves, ginger, green chillies and onion. Saute till the onions turn transluscent. Now add the water and salt and bring to a boil.
Add the roasted oats. Stir till the water is absorbed and the mixture comes together.
Serve with or without chutney and pickle. I prefer it as it is without any accompaniment.
🙂 Have a perfect day!!
