I would run miles at the sight of porridge in any buffet and often wondered its presence among croissants, jam filled donuts, buttered toast, and muffins. Absolute misfit! wont you agree!!.
So when my dear friend 's' who is helping me shed my flab suggested that i should definitely reconsider my opinion - :-((( it was hard!!.
But truly i have been so biased!. Also when i followed her recipe i realised i have not been doing it right either. I think i was over doing on the milk and the quantity of oats often ending up with a mushy mess !. Of course i agree it is individual taste. I like mine when it is not too thick and gooey. I like it when it is more on the saucy and syrupy side. But the most interesting part to the recipe was adding seeds to it!.
Now we all know the goodness of flax seeds -and sunflower seeds
-Lowered blood cholesterol
-Lowered high blood pressure
-Sense of calmness under stress - that's something i can do with!!
-Increased metabolic rate with a positive impact on weight management - that's it ! my search ends here!!!!
So now for the recipe you will need -
2 -tbsp oats
Milk as required
1/2 tsp of brown sugar / honey
2 tbsp of sunflower seeds
2 tbsp of flax seeds
2 tbsp of raisins
and a dash of cinnamon - for flavouring.
I soaked the oats in water for few mins and added milk and cooked it to for few mins till it is well cooked and added all the other ings - flax seeds, brown sugar sunflower seeds and raisins and mixed it together and enjoy!
