Oats Upma
Oats Upma is my fav...I have tried oats upma few times but it ended up sticky most of the time...but finally got the trick to get this flaky version after few trials and now am hooked onto this recipe either for breakfast or even as a snack. I love oats in any form and the oats recipes section justifies it :)
