I have always bought oats hoping I will use them and till date, the entire packet goes to my domestic maid or to my bin if unfortunately it gets expired.

  • Salt

  • Red chillies(whole)

  • Apple cider vinegar(optional)

  • Mustard seeds(Rai)

  • Urad daal(optional)

Serves 1


1. In a non stick pan, heat 1 table spoon of oil.  Add 1 small cup oats to it.

2. Saute till oats turn a bit brown. Cook on a low-medium flame for 3-4 minutes only because oats get burnt very quickly.

3. Once oats turn brown, transfer them to a different utensil and add 2 tablespoon of oil in the pan.

4. Add onion in the pan with mustard seeds once oil heats up a bit. Saute until onion turns golden brown.

5. Add all chopped vegetables and saute. Cook for 3-4 minutes. You can add all vegetables that you like in this step.

6. Add salt, red chillies, turmeric, curry leaves. You can add spices as per your liking.

7. Add 1 cup hot water and let it come to boil.

8. Add half a table spoon apple cider vinegar.

9. Add oats back to the pan and cook for 3-4 minutes.

10. Simmer the gas and cover the lid for 1-2 minutes.

Tadaa, oats upma is ready! Let you upma hold a bit of water else it would feel grainy when you eat. Apple cider vinegar is a must have for me in dishes where I want to mask taste of …everything I don’t like 😉 . It masked the taste of oats totally 😛 . Next time I will skip it and see how oats really taste like 😀
