Spicy oat/ Oat upma


  • For all indians, you know how to make upma and this one is just using oat. Just roast it for few mins and then same recipe.
  • For others, if you like spicy food like my coworkers, here’s how you can make it with minimum ingredients.
  • Roast 1 cup oat dry few mins so it won’t be sticky and if u don’t mind sticky, skip this step.
  • Heat oil, add either cumin seeds or mustard seeds whatever you have. Cumin seeds will turn little brown and mustard seeds will crack,jump around so be careful.
  • Add 1/4th cup chopped red, white or yellow onion. Add chopped green pepper or jalapeno or green chilies depending on how spicy you like. Start slow though.
  • Saute onion for few mins and then you can add chopped tomatoes if you like. I didn’t.
  • Add pinch of turmeric powder and now add your roasted oat. Add water(Microwave for a min so it’s warm).
  • Add salt and when oat is done, add 1 tsp sugar. Add some cashews or any nuts you like.
  • You can squeeze some lemon, lime over it and garnish with cilantro.
  • It’s easy and very quick.
