I have not got much interest in Oats recipes before as I didn’t know the medicinal values of it but when I wanted to shed the extra weight after delivery, I was told to increase the intake of Oats by the nutritionist. Hence, I started collecting different recipes using the Oatmeal. One of them is the upma which tastes really good.


Oats – 1 cup

Mustard seed – 1 small tsp

Urad dal – 1 tsp

Chenna dal – 1 tsp

Red chilies – 2-3

Salt – As required

Tamarind Juice – 3 tsp

Turmeric Powder – a pinch

Asafoetida – a pinch

Curry Leaves – few

Oil – 1 tsp


· Powder the oats in the grinder.

· Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds. When they crackle, add the dals and fry. Then add the red chilies and curry leaves and fry for few seconds.

· Now add the tamarind juice. Add necessary salt, turmeric powder, and asafoetida.

· When the tamarind juice starts boiling, add the oats powder, stir constantly until it becomes thicken.

· Serve hot with any chutney or sambar.
