Oats Upma

After 8 months, I'm having Oats Upma. I was in India for kuttan delivery. He was 6 months in my tummy. This time I want to eat healthy and also variety of foods. During pregnancy, I used to have oats upma or cereals in the morning, rice in afternoon and rotis in the night. This gave me a chance to have varied grains with vegetables in a day.
Well, since then I have prepared oats upma only now. It is my most favorite. It hardly takes 10 mins to cook.

You need:
Oats - 1 cup
Onion - 1 small chopped
ginger paste - 1/4 tsp
green chillies - 2 slit open
curry leaves few
turmeric powder - a pinch
hing powder - a pinch
salt to taste
oil to saute
Water - 1/2 cup
To Tamper
Mustard seeds
Urad and channa dhal
Soak the oats in water for less than a minute, like how you do for poha. Just soak and then drain the water away completely.
Heat oil in the pan, tamper mustard seeds. Roast the Urad and channa dhal until golden color. Add the chopped onion. Once onion is saute till golden brown then add curry leaves, ginger, chillies, hing and turmeric powder. Now add the oats and bring the flame to minimum. Close with a lid. Keep it for 5 - 8 mins. Oats upma is ready to be served.
Serve hot with chutney of your choice.
