My Notes:

  • You can even dry roast oats for 2mins then follow the same procedure, this helps in making fluffier upma.
  • I used quaker quick cooking oats, if you are using rolled or other oats variety adjust water quantity accordingly.
  • I always recommend any oats upma recipes to be served hot.
  • You dont need any side dish for lemon oats but if you prefer then serve it with coconut chutney.
  • I love the crunch in the peanuts so I recommend adding it.
