I was looking for healthy grain options for this months challenge and I shortlisted oats to be one of them.

So for this challenge I decided to make this quick and easy, savory 10 minutes Vegetable Oats Upma. I am serious, this Oats upma can be done in just 10 minutes and is loaded with the goodness of Vegetables and oats.

Coming to today’s recipe of Savory 10 minutes Vegetable Oats Upma I have made it similar to our upma style but with the addition of vegetables like beans and tomatoes. You can use vegetables of your choice. Generally steel cut oats is used in upma but I could not get that. Porridge oats is widely available here and that is always there in my pantry. So I used the same. Cooking time might vary with steel cut oats.


Ingredients

  • 1 cup oats (I use porridge oat’s)
  • 1 cup water
  • ¼ cup chopped beans
  • 1 tomatoes chopped finely
  • 1 small onion chopped finely
  • 1/4 Cup chopped capsicum
  • ¼ inch ginger grated or paste
  • Salt to taste
  • 1-2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp oil
  • ½ tsp mustard seeds
  • ½ tsp cumin seeds
  • ¼ tsp turmeric
  • ¼ tsp red chilly powder
  • 1 green chilly chopped
  • 7-8 curry leaves
  • 1-2 tbsp cashews chopped (For garnish)
  • ¼ cup coriander chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Desiccated coconut


Preparation

  • Dry roast the oats for 5-7 on medium till they start changing colour.
  • Keep it aside.
  • Simultaneously In a pan add oil.
  • Once the oil is hot, add mustard seeds, cumin seeds and let it splutter.
  • Then add curry leaves, ginger paste, onion.
  • Let this cook for a min.
  • Once the onion is translucent add the green beans and cook for 1-2 mins.
  • Now add peppers, tomatoes, red chilly powder, green chilly, turmeric and half of the coriander.
  • Mix everything and add water and let the mixture come to a boil.
  • Once the water starts boiling add the oats.
  • Simmer this on slow to medium stirring in between.
  • Do not stir too much else you will crush all the oats
  • Also do cook on slow, as oats will immediately absorb all the water.
  • We need to cook this a bit to incorporate the masalas.
  • After 3-5 mins, add the remaining coriander, cashews and switch off.
  • Close it with a lid and let it sit for 5 mins.
  • Garnish with coriander and Serve immediately.
