IMG_8477When I came to Kerala around five years back I noticed a revolution of oats supply here. People regularly have oats porridge with milk. Especially for babies and people with health reasons, oats have become a regular dish.

I am not very much into oats. But I know oats is healthy. How to make it yummy is always a challenge. I learned from experience that if kids suffer from constipation oats porridge is the best food since it is fibrous.

This is a simple oats porridge with caramelized apples and without milk. If your kid is used to milk then you can prepare it with milk. Some kids tend to have cough congestion with milk intake. Also milk is known to increase constipation.


Quick Cooking Oats – 1 cup

Sugar ย – 2 tblspn or as per taste

Chopped Apple – 1/2 cup

Powdered jaggery – 1 cup

Cinnamon Powder – 1 tsp

Salt as per taste


  1. In a pan take oats, 2 cups water, cinnamon and salt. Bring it to a boil and cook for 2 minutes.
  2. Take it off flame.
  3. In a pan take thinly chopped apples and powdered jaggery.
  4. Cook on low flame.
  5. Remove from flame when the apples have become sticky and nicely caramelized.
  6. Add it to the oats and mix well.
  7. ย Serve it warm

Oats porridge is quickly prepared and is soothing on a day when you have cough and cold.ย IMG_8478
