Porridge happens to be one of the breakfast dishes on my weekly menu. It’s fulfilling and good for your health too. Mostly porridge are made with rice. In this recipe I am using oats which takes it to a whole new level.

If you are not an oats lover, this recipe is sure to make you eat them. The Indian masala twist is what makes this recipe an exceptional one. Give it a try and enjoy it.


  • 6 tbsp quick cooking oats(I use quaker oats)
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 clove garlic chopped
  • 1/2 carrot chopped
  • 4 beans chopped
  • 1/4 cup green peas

  • 1/4 tsp turmeric  powder
