Oats Upma Recipe (Easy Oats Upma) | Indian Oats Recipes

Oats Upma
Oats Upma is my fav...I have tried oats upma few times but it ended up sticky most of the time...but finally got the trick to get this flaky version after few trials and now am hooked onto this recipe either for breakfast or even as a snack. I love oats in any form and the oats recipes section justifies it :)

My Notes:

  • Dont add the water fully, just add little by little and cook covered thats the trick here to get flaky upma.
  • You can dry roast oats and store it so that its easier to make during the morning hours.
  • As I used quick cooking oats, just little water was enough for it to get cooked. If you are using steel cut oats, you need to add more water accordingly.
  • You can even add cooked vegetables to the upma along with oats to make it a filling and wholesome breakfast.
