Oats Vegetable Upma | Uppittu

Oats is a popular grain nowadays and recommended for health reasons . Eating Oats as is a huge problem for my family so came up with a recipe wherein I could make them eat Oats. Made “Oats Vegetable Upma” – iyengar style. No Onion, No garlic but with Vegetables. Came out very nice and my family did not even know it was Oats until I told them ;)

  • In the same pan add oil heat it then add mustard seeds , chana dal, curry leaves, green chillies and asafoetida fry till dal turn into golden color
