Have a look at what are the ingredients that you require and also the method of preparation.
Ingredients: 1 cup of quick cooking oats or rolled oats 2 cups of water and 1 cup of milk
OR 2 to 2.5 cups of water or 2 to 2.5 cups milk 2 tablespoons of sugar, or as per taste
Procedure: A cup of milk provides a slightly thicker consistency. For a thinner consistency, you may add more milk or water. If you want to add some honey, then add it when the porridge becomes warm or cools down to room temperature, as honey becomes toxic on being heated. Take a cup of quick cooking oats or rolled oats in a saucepan. Stir it very well and heat the porridge mixture by adding water or milk on a low to medium fire. Add sugar and do stir it frequently and allow the porridge to simmer. Serve the oats porridge hot or warm or at room temperature. If you want to add some chopped fruits, then add them when the porridge becomes warm or cools down entirely.
