A new wave of vegetarian cooking!

Quick Upit (cream of wheat and oats) – Breakfast

This weekend we had a lot of family and guests stay for the weekend. Although cereal is readily available and eating out is a must. The one wake up meal that is always available at my house is a hot stirred pot of salty cream of wheat. The salty smell brings everyone to the kitchen for a quick morning feast.

If you are looking for something salty in the morning then start the day with Upit (cream of wheat and oats) made healthy, tasty and satisfying.

Salty breakfast


  • 1/2 cup cream of wheat (suji)
  • 1 1/2 cup flat oats
  • 1 to 2 jalapeno sliced or any green chile
  • 1/2 red onion (optional)
  • 4 Campari tomatoes on vine
  • Finely chopped cilantro
  • 1 stem of curry leaves (optional)
  • 2 1/2 cup of  hot water


  • 2 tbsp oil (I use olive, but can use vegetable, safola oil, etc)
  • 1/2 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1/2 tsp urad daal
  • 1/8 tsp carom (ajwain)
  • 1/8 tsp asafoetida (hing)
  • 1/8 tsp fenugreek seeds (methi)
  • 1 tsp salt or to taste


Temper mustard, urad and carom, reduce heat then add hing, methi, jalapeno and salt. After a min. add cream of wheat and roast for 3 min., then add oats and roast for 2 min. more. Add boiling water slowly while stirring so no clumps are formed. Mix in the tomatoes and cilantro.

Serve with 1 tsp of butter and chutney pudi (dry chutney made from lentils/spices)
