Oats Upam

I wanted to make something fast for lunch and get back to my routine work. My husband love upma, but I dont like to make it with rava. So I was going thru my pantry and I saw Quick Oats. I thought why not this instead of Rava. And voila, Lunch is served.  There are lots of recipes and variation you can do in this. You can add what ever vegetables you have on hand and make it. I wanted to make it fast and I love corn so I used that only.

  5. Thank you for posting! Can I ask... do you cook the white urad dal prior to making this dish? or do you buy them cooked in a can?

    Thank you :)

    1. Hi, thanks for stopping by, Indians mostly dont use lentils from can, we buy it in bulk and use it as needed in dishes. For this dish you dont need to cook, Just add it raw and it will cook in that hot oil.
