Oats Upma is my favourite, though I am not a big fan of oats(the porridge variety) I like this upma. This is a healthy breakfast/dinner recipe which can be made in a jiffy. Its kids friendly too. It supplies a steady stream of energy that kids require especially to kick start the day. Loaded with vegetables this is completely nutritious. If u are a fan of sambar sadham, try this Sambar Sadham recipe with Oats.

Now to the recipe.

  1. Use vegetables of your choice like potato, beans, capsicum..
  2. Do not exceed the amount of water as mentioned, else the upma will be soggy.
  3. U can add chilli powder for a colourful upma.
  4. U can add lemon juice for a tangy flavor.
