  1. Take a wide frying pan, heat oil and ghee. (Ghee gives good flavor avoid if you are too health conscious) Splutter mustard, split black gram, cumin seeds and curry leaves. Add chopped onion, green chili, ginger and veggies. Give it quick saute over medium heat for 3 minutes. Now add oats, turmeric powder, chili powder and salt. Mix to combine well and add water.

  2. Let the oats cook. If you prefer slightly dry version then add only 1 1/2 cups of water, cover and cook until it thickens. This way the upma will turn out like flakes and will look separated and fluffy. In my recipe, the water is slightly more and the consistency will look chunky. Quaker package instruction gives 1 cup oats ; 2 cups water. Adjust accordingly. Once it thickens , switch off and garnish with coriander/cilantro leaves.
