I love having oatmeal for breakfast. Most of the time my breakfast will be either cereal or oatmeal. I occasionally have idli or dosa or upma for breakfast. I have shared few versions of oatmeal, i make those version often. But most of the time it is plain ol oatmeal porridge with some kind of dried fruits on top.
In my place i couldn't find any other kind of oatmeal like rolled or steel cut. I could only get instant variety so i use those. But if you can get your hands on rolled oatmeal please use that because they are the best ones. Making oatmeal is not at all a recipe, but this is how i like to make my oatmeal..If i am having it plain i like to cook my oatmeal in water instead of milk and add a splash of milk at the end..I like my oatmeal sweet but not too sweet, so i add a tiny little amount of honey.
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
