Hello friends
Welcome to ''my cuisine''. According to me cuisine or the culinary art is just that an art. The art of creating delicious foods with a conscience to health has various dimensions with which we can experiment and I have just started to experiment in my kitchen. There is nothing more heartwarming than a hot aroma filled food on a cold rainy day to cheer us up or nothing more satisfactory than satisfying the taste buds of our loved and dear ones.This was the reason i found my new love for cooking. Hope you would enjoy my various recipes......

Spicy Oats upma

They say that oats is a real healthy food, but I have never really liked to eat it as porridge. Could be the fact that its sweet, and hence thought of trying this version of upma. You got to believe it.... it was good and quite filling too......So here is how I did it. Its a pretty fast recipe.

  • Oats - 1 cup
  • Onion - 1 (diced)
  • Green chilly - 1 (chopped)
  • Red chilli flakes - 2 tbsps
  • mustard seeds - 1 tsp
  • Urad dal - 2 tsp
  • Chana dal - 1 tsp
  • Curry leaves - few
  • Coriander leaves - 1 tbsp
  • Asafoetida - a pinch
  • Dry fry the oats in a frying pan for about ten minutes.Set them aside.
  • Pour a little oil in the pan and splutter the mustard seeds, urad dal, chana dal, asafoetida, curry leaves and the chilly. Add the diced onions and the chili flakes. Saute until the onions are soft and translucent. 
  • Pour 2 cups of water and let it come to a boil. Add the oats and let it cook and absorb all the water.
  • Sprinkle with coriander leaves and serve immediately.
You can also serve with any kind of chutney or houmous......
