Oats upma recipe – Easy breakfast recipes

      As I said before , I got a variety of wholegrains during my shopping to Mustafa. I have already posted with quinoa and I used quinoa in a variety of forms and also in place of rice. I will be posting some recipes with millets which is another grain I have been using. I also got a packet of steel cut oats. I have been using oats in my cooking for a long time and I have posted many recipes with it. This steel cut oats has a hard texture and takes little more time to cook than the usual quick cooking oats. As a result, it has a grainy texture like that of semolina or wheat rava. So I found this teel cut oats for upma.

       Oats is a very good food for people who are trying to lose weight as it is high in fiber and low in calories  and filling too. I make this during weeknights and serve with some salads making it a perfect meal for weight watchers.
