Oats Upma

Oats upma is healthy, super quick and easy to make. I have added mixed vegetables to increase the nutrition proportion and a bit of whole garam masala spices to increase the flavor of upma. Enjoyed every
spoonful of the oats upma.

Ingredients :

Oats - 1 cup, dry roast for 5 minutes and cool
Carrot - 1, cubed
French Beans - 5-6, string and chop into pieces
Green peas - fistful (optional)
Onion - 1, finely sliced
Green Chilies - 2, slit
Ginger - 1tsp (grated)
Dry roasted peanuts - 1 tbsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste
Water - 1 cup
Ghee - 2 tsps
Oil - 2 tsps
Curry leaves - 1 spring

Tempering Tadka:

Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Cloves - 2
Cinnamon Stick - small piece
Cardamom - 1
Bay Leaf - 1

Method :

Heat oil and ghee in a heavy bottomed vessel. Add mustard seeds and allow to splutter. Add whole spices and curry leaves, saute for a minute on low to medium flame.

Add the onions, ginger and green chilies and saute for 3-4 mins. Add
carrots and beans and saute on medium flame for 5 mins. Add turmeric
powder and salt and mix.

Place lid and cook on low flame for 6-7 mts. Add a cup of water and
bring to a boil. Reduce flame, place lid and cook until the water is
half absorbed.

Now add the dry roasted oats and peanuts, mix well. Place lid for 3
minutes. Turn off heat and mix well.

Remove onto a serving bowl and garnish with fresh tomato.
