ABOUT Oats Celery Upma RECIPE

Oats are a very healthy option and can be had in many forms. It is generally had with milk, fruits and nuts with some honey added to it for breakfast. Why not in the form of an Upma (South Indian Porridge)? This is exactly what I made, but, with some celery added to it for a totally different flavour. It is a diabetic friendly cereal and is laden with lots of fibre. Hence a good breakfast option.
