Oates Upama

As health reason I am now thinking to start trying some new kind of (main) ingredients in my recipe...so I statred with oates...
I usually don't prepare more recipes from (in fact i don't prepare anything except dosa and using as cereal) Oates.
So today I thought replacing the main ingredient of upama by Oates..and the result was very good.My hubby loved this upama...
here is my simple recipe,,as most similar to normal uapama...
Rolled Oates 3 cups
onion 2 finely chopped
green chilly 3 sliced
Cherry Tomato 7-8(cut in to 2-3 pices)
Vegetables chopped all together 2cups(like i have used...beans, peas,carrot,broccoli and cauliflower)
Sunflower Oil 2TBSP
Split Bengal gram lentil(chana dhal) 1TBSP
Mustered 1/2tsp
Curry leaves 6-7
Turmeric 1/2 tsp
salt to Taste
Lemon juice 1tsp
Curry powder or garam masala(optional)

Heat a pan and dry roast the oates till the nice aroma come out and keep aside.

Heat oil add Bengal gram lentil fry till the colour changes then add mustered, turmaric,green chilly and curry leaves. Fry for a min then add chopped onion fry for a min again( i have used while onion but red onion will give more taste and colour)

then add tomato again fry for a min

then add all chopped vegetables and fry till they are tender(all the vegetables i have used will be cooked fast so, have not used extra water to cook them).

Once the vegetable is tender Now add salt,sugar,lemon juice and if you want can add test of curry powder and mix well now add oates,mix well

...saute for 5 mins.....now the upama is ready...

Transfer the upama in to serving bowl garnish with your fav thing like,,,chilly, fresh coriander or in curry leaves.....or as like me ...

garnish with whole cashew nut, fresh coriander and chilly..and serve hot.....

Just have a bite plllzz...a healthy bite,,,I loved it really,,must try ...
