HOW TO MAKE SPICED BUTTERMILK OATS PORRIDGE?
Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time: 5 mins
Makes 2 largish glasses
Allergy Info: Soy and Nut free
Quick cooking oats 2 tbsp
Water 1/2 c
Thick sour yogurt 1 c
Mint leaves 8 to 9
Coriander leaves 3 tbsp chopped finely
Green chili 1 small minced
Grated ginger 1/4 tsp
Shallots 2 to 3 minced finely ( optional but recommended)
Ice cubes a few
Water 1 c
Salt to taste
1. I found that sour curd works best for this. The sourness elevates the porridge to another level.
2. Not cooking the oats leaves a raw taste of the oats in the porridge.
3. Skip the ginger and green chili if making this for children.
4. Shallots lend a nice flavor to the porridge but you must serve this immediately if you add shallots. Or the porridge turns bitter. Alternatively, you may chop the shallots finely and add as a garnish in the end.
Heat 1/2 c of water and cook the oats until done.
In a blender, place cooked oats, ice cubes and the rest of the ingredients except 1 c of water and yogurt and blend to a puree.
Now, add yogurt and blend again.
Adjust consistency by adding more water if you want a thinner porridge.
