MASALA OATS UPMA / OATS UPMA


I was not a great fan of oats upma  until one friend of mine asked  me how to cook oats upma without becoming sticky and mushy. Just follow the method and you will get a non-sticky oats upma. :)

INGREDIENTS:

Oats - 1 cup
Water - just to sprinkle
Oil - 1 tablespoon
Carrot - 1 (small)
Shelled peas & beans - 1/4 cup
Onions (optional)

Bakers Noodles masala - 1/2 tsp. ( for masala oats)
Mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp.
Gram dhal- 1/4 tsp.
Urad dhal - 1/2 tsp.
Green chillies - 2

Grated ginger - 1/8 tsp.
Curry leaves - few
Coriander leaves - few

METHOD:

In a kadai, dry roast oats. Keep aside.

Grate carrots and slice beans.

In the same kadai, heat oil, and add mustard seeds. When it splutters, add urad dhal, gram dhal, slit green chillies, grated ginger, curry leaves and hing. When they turn golden brown,(if using onions add at this stage and fry till translucent), add vegetables and shelled peas. Add little salt and saute for till cooked. (Add the noodles masala and saute if you want a masala oats upma. If you are cooking an oats upma skip the noodles masala). Now, add oats and salt to taste. Mix well. Sprinkle a teaspoon of water, and cook it covered. Within few seconds, take out the lid and sprinkle again a teaspoon of water and cook it covered. Repeat the process until cooked. Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot with ketchup.
