  • 1 cup oats
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 1 small tomato
  • 6 - 8 curry leaves
  • 1/2 tsp ginger finely chopped
  • 1 - 2 green chilli finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 cup mix vegetables (beans, peas, carrots, cauliflower) chopped
  • 3 cup water
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp coriander leaves finely chopped


  • Heat a pan and dry roast oats for 2 minutes. Keep stirring
    with a spoon.
  • Once done remove it from pan and place it on a dry clean plate.
  • Next, heat oil in a pan or wok.
  • Add mustard seeds, cumin seeds and let it splutter.
  • Then add in curry leaves and ginger and green chilies to the pan. (you can also add some lentils like urad dal & chana dal to give authentic upma flavor. But I have not added them here.)
  • Now add all chopped veggies and saute for 3 - 4 minutes on medium flame.
  • Stir occasionally and cover with a lid to fasten the process.
  • Now add water, salt to taste and bring it to a boil.
  • Next, add roasted oats stirring continuously.
  • Let it simmer till oats are cooked completely and soak up all liquid. It will take 3 - 5 minutes.
  • Add in a dash of lemon juice and some chopped coriander leaves. Give a nice stir.
  • Turn off heat and cover with a lid for 2 - 3 minutes before serving.
  • Serve hot with any ketchup or sauce.
  • Make a cup of green tea (for weight loss) or regular ginger tea.
