Oatmeal is a very versatile cereal and can be had in many forms. One of them is as an Indian upma / porridge. The addition of onion, ginger and other spices makes it very delicious and healthy. You can go ahead and add veggies of your choice. It is a diabetic friendly cereal and also laden with fibre, so a good breakfast option.
