Oats was always considered baby food or food when you are sick. So when Pappa brought a tin of oats I was quite upset, as I was sure no one would eat it as porridge, the only way I knew to cook oats. However Pappa told me was that I could add buttermilk. I was in no mood to experiment so I made porridge and some granola bars (the recipe of which I had modified) finished the tin.
The other day when I was shopping for my groceries hubby dear was with me and he brought a packet of oats and told me to make the granola bars again. Now coming from him this is very high praise I still have to make them. I will make it patience…………. patience.
On the packet there was the website address for more recipes. Curiosity, my middle name and I found the recipe for my no hassle breakfast. I have basically modified the recipe from this site
3 tblspn oats
1 cup water
¼ tsp salt
¾ soup bowl buttermilk/ or ½ cup curds
1 Green chilli (Adjust as per taste)
1/2 knuckle sized ginger (say ¼ Inch)

- Boil the water with the salt.
- Add the oats and cook. Cool.
- In the meanwhile whip buttermilk or curds with the ginger and coriander in the blender to form a smooth paste. Mix with the oats.
