Rava Oats Upma with Moong Dal | Diabetic Recipe!

I love Rava Upma, and mostly make once a week for breakfast or dinner. This time tried to make healthy version for cholestrol and diabetic people. I usally buy quick cook oats, this time wanted to try rolled oats.
Rava(Semolina/Sooji) - 2 cups
Rolled Oats - 1 cup

Pasiparuppu/Siru paruppu/Moong dal/Split green gram - 1/2 cup
Water - 5 to 6 cups
Onion - 1 no (thinly sliced)
Capsicum - 1 med(thinly sliced)
Cabbage - 1/2 no((thinly sliced)/shredded)
Olive Oil - 4 tspns
Ghee - 1 tspn
Green chilli - 2 nos(As per taste)
Mustard - 1/2 tspn
Urad/Channa dal mixed - 1 tspn
Asafotida(hing) - 2 pinches
Curry leaves - few
Turmeric - 1/2 tspn
Salt to taste
Corainder for garnishing.
Preparation Method
Wash and soak moong dal in warm water or normal water in a vessel.
Heat a kadai, roast the rava slightly till it becomes brown and gets nice aroma. Transfer it to a plate.
In the same kadai, dry roast rolled oats till slight brown. Transfer it to a plate.
In a vessel boil water and keep aside.
In a same kadai, add 3 tspns olive oil and mustard wait till it splutters. Now add dal and asafotida. Saute till its brown.
Add onion, ginger, garlic, green chilli, curry leaves and saute till onion is slightly brown.
Add capsicum, cabbage, a pinch of turmeric and saute for few mins. Add soaked  moong dal and mix.
Add boiled water, 1 tspn oil allow it to boil. Once its boiled reduce the heat. Check whether moong dal is cooked. Then add salt and curry leaves.
Slowly add the rava and mix well immediately without allowing it to form lumps. Add water if required. Close with a lid till rava cooks.
After 2 mins add roasted oats and mix well.
Slowly stir until no water is left. Check whether rava is nicely cooked otherwise sprinkle water mix and close the lid. Keep in low flame.
Off the stove. Garnish with coriander/cilantro.
