Shilpa Shetty recently showed us how to cook upma in a healthier way. The Dhadkan actor took to Instagram to share a recipe using oats and sattu, along with nutritious vegetables to cook the dish.

“It’s a tedious job to wake up every morning and decide the menu for the day. It has to be different, healthy, and filling – all at once…The oats sattu upma is loaded with essential nutrients, is extremely filling, and lip-smackingly tasty,” Shilpa wrote alongside the recipe video.

Oats are rich in antioxidants and fibre. They are not only filling but are also known to lower cholesterol levels and improve blood sugar levels, according to Healthline. Sattu, on the other hand, has cooling properties that keep the body hydrated, besides high fibre content. It has a low glycaemic index, improves digestion and boosts energy.
