Oats Upma a healthy breakfast which is loved by everyone as the mix vegetables are added to it.The curry leaves give the extraordinary flavor to the oats upma. When i wake on Sunday morning mom asked me what you will have in breakfast so it thought to make the the healthy morning by making the oats upma . I had used the gluten free organic steel cut oats which are natural.
steel cut oats are a rich source of fiber, protein and magnesium not only are you able to eat them as oatmeal but they add health benefits to breads, bakes and protein shakes all of that simply makes our oats a cut above the rest.The difference between rolled and steel cut oats is that steel cut leaves the endosperm intact, making them healthier than rolled.
