Author Notes: A warm, comforting porridge made with oats. The rose, cardamom and honey elevate the humble oats to an almost dessert like quality in this recipe. —Richa Gupta
cup Instant Cooking Oats
teaspoons dried Rose Petals
pieces Cardamom pods, crushed
- Add rose petals and cardamom pods to milk and slowly bring to a simmer. Avoid bringing to a boil quickly so that the flavors permeate the milk. I used 2% skim milk, but feel free to use any kind.
- Strain the milk and discard the rose petals and cardamom pods.
- In the same vessel, add oats, honey and the milk and cook for 3-4 minutes, adjusting its consistency to suit you. Add more milk to thin the porridge if you like. 1/4-1/2 cup will not alter the taste.
