This recipe combines two of my favorite comfort foods: chai tea and oatmeal. The oatmeal is scented with the wonderful flavors of cinnamon, ginger, and of course cardamom. —Ordinary Blogger (Rivki Locker)

In This Recipe
Combine the water, milk, ginger and spices in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over a medium flame and then immediately remove from the heat.
Cover the saucepan and let the milk sit for about 1/2 hour.
After the milk has been steeping for about 1/2 hour, drain it, discarding the ginger and spices and putting the flavored milk back in the saucepan.
Add the oatmeal to the saucepan and bring to a boil over low heat. Simmer for about 15 minutes, until the oatmeal is as soft as you like it.
