Oats Upma | Breakfast recipe | Oats Recipe

Oats Upma, a healthy and quick to make breakfast with oats and indian spices.  Few years back oats was getting popular in India like anything and almost all the indian dishes have an oats version like oats upma, oats dosa , oats khichdi and the list goes on. As of now, the whole world had already tried everything possible with oats and moves on to the other grains.But here i'm sharing my first oats recipe now since i'm so reluctant to try instantly when something new comes into market, as usual i have taken my own phase of time to get to know about that and slowly started to use in my cooking. Now for last one year i have been cooking oats regularly at home and now i'm quite confident about how to handle the oats and out of all my experiments with oats, this upma is my most favorite breakfast recipe with oats. It's really very simple and delicious with mild flavors and comes handy on your busy mornings. Now let's check out the recipe.

Stir it between to avoid sticking at the bottom. Tada, non sticky, fluffy oats upma is ready. Add some coriander leaves on the top while serving.

Notes:
  • Depends on the moisture in the onions and oats quality, you may need more or less of 1 tbsp of water as i mentioned here.
  • Don't pour all the water at once. Slowly add the water and gently mix the oats. It helps to make sure that every grain of  oats is completely wet.
  • Add the spices more or less as per your liking.
  • Upma tastes good as it is, but if you like, you can serve them with chutney or sambar.
