Ingredients
  • 3, 28g Sachets Quaker® Regular Instant Oatmeal (approx. 1 cup)
  • 1 tsp, Ghee
  • 1 small Onion, finely chopped
  • 2 Thai Chilis, split lengthwise
  • 1/4 cup, finely cubed Carrots
  • 1/4 cup, Frozen Peas
  • 1/4 cup, Fried/Roasted Cashews
  • 1.5 cups, Water
  • Salt to Taste
  • Chopped fresh Coriander to garnish
Directions
  1. In a small frying pan on medium-high heat, toast Quaker® Regular Instant Oatmeal for 2-3 minutes until slightly golden with a nutty aroma. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.

  2. In the same pan, add Ghee. Add Onion, Ginger and Chilis and sauté until softened. Then add Carrots and Peas, and sauté for 2 minutes to make vegetables tender.

  3. Add Roasted Cashews, Water, and Salt to Taste. Increase heat to high, and bring mixture to a rolling boil.

  4. Once boiling, drop heat to medium, and stir in toasted Oatmeal. Continue stirring mixture for 6-7 minutes, until almost all the water has been absorbed and the mixture takes on the texture of a thick porridge.

  5. Remove from heat and garnish with fresh chopped Coriander. Serve immediately. Enjoy! :)
