Oatmeal Uppittu/Oatmeal Porridge

Quaker Oatmeal not only tastes delicious, it's good for your heart...

Oats have numerous uses in food; most commonly, they are rolled or crushed into oatmeal, or ground into fine oat flour. Oatmeal is chiefly eaten as porridge, but may also used in a variety of baked goods, such as oatcakes, oatmeal cookies, and oat bread. Oats are also an ingredient in many cold cereals, in particular muesli and granola. Oats may also be consumed raw, and cookies with raw oats are becoming popular.

Here is a 5minute Oatmeal Uppittu/porridge which is not only healthy but extremely tasty.. For all the busy folks who cannot afford to spend more than a few minutes for making a healthy breakfast.. try this and you will not be disappointed...


1 cup quick oats ( I have used quaker oats)
1.5 cups water
For seasoning: 2tsp oil, 1 tsp mustard, 1tsp jeera, 4-5 green chillies chopped, a twig of curry leaves, 2tsp cashew bits
a pinch of turmeric
grated coconut(optional)
juice of lime --1tsp

In a pan heat oil, add the seasonings, add green chillies and curry leaves and fry for a minute. Now add turmeric and mix well. Add water and boil.. When the water comes to a boil, add coconut, limejuice and salt and mixwell. Now reduce the flame and add the oats and mix well...Close the lid for a minute till the oats cook well.
Garnish with grated coconut and serve hot...
