Desi style oats porridge

Oats are great source of vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants. Begin your day with this healthy, tasty oats porridge.  In this recipe, I have added elaichi and saffron which makes it taste almost like kheer. Instead of adding elaichi and kesar, you can even top it up with fruits such as apple, strawberry etc.  Any which way, it tastes good . Here’s the recipe for Desi style Oats Porridge.


½ cup Oats                                                         
½ cup Hot Milk
