How to make Vegetable Oats Upma Recipe?

 

  • To begin making the Vegetable Oats Upma Recipe, in a heavy bottomed pan; dry roast the rolled oats until it gets a roasted aroma and also turns lightly crisp.
  • Once roasted, transfer the roasted oats to another bowl and allow it to cool.
  • Heat the oil/desi ghee (1 teaspoon) in the same heavy bottomed pan; add the red chillies, mustard seeds, urad dal. Allow the mustard seeds to crackle and allow the red chilli and the urad dal to roast and turn a little brown.
  • At this stage, add the onion, green chillies, ginger and curry leaves and saute till they become soft.
  • Add in the turmeric powder, salt, steamed vegetables and tomatoes and saute it for about half a minute.
  • Finally, add the oats and stir well so that all the ingredients get well combined. Cover the pan, turn the heat to low and allow it to steam for a few minutes in the heat.
  • The water released from the tomatoes is enough to cook the oats. Add a few drops of warm water if needed (not too much as the oats will get soggy).
  • Garnish with coriander leaves and freshly grated coconut.
  • Serve Vegetable Oats Upma along with Mint Chutney for a healthy breakfast.
