In our place, almost all the telugu channels run cooking shows in TV. Most of them are scheduled at the same time. While flipping through those channels I came across a recipe called Oats upma, though the food blog is not new for oats upma, still the method that the chef followed was slightly different. Honestly I do not remember anything other than one major point that the chef roasted slightly the oats and grinded them into coarse powder like rawa. I did the same and followed the way I make upma with sooji. The upma is really good and healthy too.
Here is how I made the upma:
1 cup oats rawa
2 green chillies slit length wise
1 small onion
1 small tomato
few curry leaves
little turmeric powder
salt as per taste
1 tbsp oil
1 tsp chana dal
1 tsp urad dal
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
2 red chillies chopped into small pieces
1. Heat oil in a pan and add the tempering ingredients.
2. When the mustard seeds splutter add green chillies, onion, curry leaves and saute for a minute.
3. Add chopped tomato, sprinkle little salt and cook until tomato is soft.
4. Now pour about 1 1/2 cup water, add salt and let it come to boil.
5. Now add oats rawa and cook until it turns thick like any other upma.
I may want to cut the sooji upma and add this into my regular diet as it is good for health. I also posted Oats idli in my other blog named SnackORama. Check that out also and enjoy.
