It some times is very boring to eat oats the way we eat it.....with milk...decorated with nuts ,fruits tried in my kitchen this Otas usual trying something healthy...but here it is from my Grand Veg Kitchen.....
Oats Upma – For Healthy and Tasty breakfast
1 Cup rolled oats (I used Quaker Rolled Oats)
½ Cup chopped veggies like-carrots, beans with peas and corn
2-3 Green chilies finely chopped
1 Onion finely chopped
1 String curry leaves
1 tsp Ginger paste
1tsp Mustard
1tsp Urad dal
2tbsp Oil
1 tsp Sugar
Pinch of turmeric
Coriander leaves for garnish
½ cut lemon
1 ½ -2 cups water
Salt to taste


Roast the oats in a thick bottom pan for 3-5 mins till it emits aroma. Keep aside. 

In the same pan add oil n when oil is heated add mustard, urad dal, turmeric, green chilies,curry leaves, onion, ginger paste n fry till onion turns pink in color.
Then add the veggies n ½ cup of water n let it cook for 4-5 mins.

Then add salt & sugar and 1 cup water and bring it to boil. 

Squeeze the lemon into it & immediately add the roasted oats and stir. Let it cook for two mins. 

If u feel its very dry add another ½ cup of water and cook for few mins till it reaches a desirable upma consistency.
Please note that oats turn sticky very fast so please do not add too much water
Garnish with coriander leaves. Serve hot!!
