Oats Upma – Ever get tired of eating the gritty oatmeal every morning for breakfast……Here’s an interesting and somewhat crunchy twist to eating oats, with the added goodness of veggies in it too. Perfect sunday morning healthy breakfast!
Ingredients: Serves 2
4 cups of oats ( I use the thick hand rolled oats from the Whole foods organic section )
Fresh chopped veggies….take your pick, I used onion, carrots and green bell peppers
2 green chillies….slit lengthwise
Salt to taste
Cilantroe to Garnish
2 tbsp Oil, one string of curry leaves and 1 tsp mustard seeds for seasoning
Soak the oats in water for an hour. In a pan, heat 2 tbsp oil and season the mustard seeds, green chillies and curry leaves. Add the onions and cook them till the onions turn golden brown. Then add the carrots and bell pepper and cook until they are soft.
Add salt to taste. Then toss in the soaked oats and cook on slow flame for 4-5 minutes. Once cool, squeeze the juice from one lemon, garnish with Cilantroe and serve.
