Oats Upma Recipe

Oats upma recipe is so easy and gets done in a short time duration. The way of preparing is similar to the traditional semolina upma. I usually add the cooked vegetable stock along with masala powder to taste differently from the normal upma. Also I do not love the light smell of oats so the vegetables and a twist of lemon covers the oats flavour. 

The recipe is great for the oats lovers who start their day with porridge of oats. This is as simple as oats porridge.

Add 2 cups of water to the pan and add the vegetables (1 chopped tomato, 3 spoons of carrot grates, one chopped potato) and allow them to boil. Add potato at the beginning as it takes longer time to boll. Add ginger grates, salt, sugar and one tea spoon of garam masala.

After the vegetable stock is boiled add the fried oats to the boiling water and stir continuously.  You can even add sweet corn kernels, it makes the recipe turn differently. Depending on the thickness and size of oats you may require more or less of water.
