Oats Upma

Yum
Sweet oats were never meant for me... I cannot bring myself to eat them. I prefer corn flakes to sweet oats. Now savory oats is something worth eating. Until recently we never got savoury oats all nicely packed, ready to eat. Even then, the packaged savoury oats do contain certain ingredients that are not so healthy like corn starch and cashew nuts. This is an easy way to prepare savory oats at home.

Ingredients:


Onion - 1 (chopped)
Tomato - 1 small (chopped)
Plain Oats - 1 cup (I use Quaker)
Curry leaves - 5-6
Green chili - 1 (chopped)
Oil - 2 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder or haldi - 1/2 tsp
Coriander leaves - 1 tbsp (chopped)
Lime juice - 1/2 tsp
Salt
Water

Method:

Heat oil in a kadhai and add mustard seeds.
Once the seeds splutter, add curry leaves, onion, chili and fry.
After the onion is cooked and translucent, add the tomato and fry for 1-2 mins.
Add water (enough to cook the oats - read instructions on the box)
Add oats
Add haldi and salt.
Remove from heat once the oats are cooked (Appx 3-5 mins)
Add lime juice and coriander. Serve hot.
