To make oats upma, regular rolled oats are best suited. The health benefits of regular rolled oats are more when compared to the quick cook oats. Regular rolled oats have a low glycemic index than the quick cook oats. So those who want to include oats in their diet for health reasons must favor rolled oats.

Tarla Dalal    Dear David, There is very minimal nutritional difference between the regular rolled oats and quick cooking rolled oats. This recipe has been tried using quick cooking rolled oats, but you can opt for regular rolled oats also. However the cooking time for regular rolled oats is more than the quick oats hence kindly keep a check while cooking them. Also the amount of water may vary.
