This week has been so crazy, erratic sleeping patterns, busy schedules, having one drink too many at times and hung over mornings. So much so that I was not even able to go up to the kitchen and do one of my favorite things in this world, cooking breakfast. Add to it all the backlogs. Okay, enough of complaining and back to action!!
Oatmeal is one of my most loved breakfasts. I do think it is difficult to get it just right when making Oatmeal, either it's too runny for me or a bit too cloying. After years (literally) of going wrong I have finally found something that suits me best, and is perfect on my palette!
Oatmeal is one of those things where you can go completely crazy. Oats with Mango with a hint of Cinnamon is my favorite! And I discovered some new flavored Oatmeal treats from Quaker Oats at the Supermarket the other day. The Lemon and Veggie combo seemed intriguing. So I gave that a try too. Here's my recipe for Mango Oatmeal.
Recipe : Self
1 Cup Instant Oats.
1 Cup Warm Milk
2 Cups Water
4 tbsp Sugar
A pinch of Salt (1/2 tsp)
1 tsp Cinnamon Powder
1/2 tbsp Butter
Half a Mango, Chopped into dices.
Soak the Oats in 1 Cup Milk and 1 Cup Water. Reserve 1 Cup Water for later. Let it sit for 30 minutes.
Chop the Mango. Let it chill in the refrigerator.
Mix the Cinnamon and Sugar. I ground the two since I had no powder. I used 1 inch of Cinnamon. Also add the Butter. Then turn the heat on medium low.
In a Saucepan, add the soaked Oats, remaining Water, Salt, Sugar and Cinnamon. Add the Butter too.
Let this cook stirring continuously for 10 minutes, till you get a nice fluffy texture. Pour in a bowl and top with chopped Mangoes. Enjoy!
