Sweet Oats porridge

While our weekend breakfast menu always overwhelm with Indian delicacies,  I can make simple breakfasts only for weekdays.  Oats porridge is my favorite and I like it better than any cereal. Starting the day with a healthy and sweet breakfast makes one's day productive. Apple and bananas go well with oats. we can use either one or both to get that fruity flavor.  Oats is similar to the poha (Indian rice flakes / aval), so it gets cooked in stove top or MW. Just boiling or  microwaving is enough.

Sweet oats porridge with fruits.

Ingredients: (for 2 serving)
Old fashioned oats - 1/2 cup
milk - 1 cup
water - 1/2 cup
cinnamon powder - 2 pinches
brown sugar - 4 tsp
apple - 1
banana - 1
raisins - 10
almond - 2

Peel, core and finely chop the apple . Likewise chop the banana too.
Microwave the oats with water for 2 minutes. Take out and keep aside for 2 minutes.
Again microwave for 3 minutes along with milk, finely chopped banana and apple.
Divide it in 2 bowls.
Top each with some raisins, a dash of cinnamon, slivered almond.
It would be a nice idea to keep some apple sauce in refrigerator, to avoid chopping the apples. But fresh apples taste better.

Serve warm with an omelet as side.
