Oats upma recipe is for those, who prefer to have the benefits of oats, yet do not want to compromise on taste. Oats upma for babies are very common in many Indian houses and it is mainly eaten for morning breakfast but some prefer to have a warm breakfast with a spicy touch to it without any addition of milk or fruits. I have added some finely chopped veggies and I do suggest to add them as they give a good texture and of course a nutritional boost to the upma. You can add your choice of veggies.
I have added oats to my family’s morning breakfast for a number of reasons. First, it is very easy and quick to prepare. Second, there is less chance of going wrong with oats, and eventually an ideal recipe during busy morning hours. lastly, the health benefits of oats cannot be ignored and hence making it an ideal meal to start your day. Frankly, this recipe is a welcome change from the regular stuff I made it in my kitchen and especially when its loaded with veggies.
