Oatmeal – Scottish Porridge Recipe


Well, one thing both me and Q did all through our travel in Europe was to try out the local cuisine. Afterall food constitutes a major part to your whole travel experience. Derek a friend of our’s whom we met in Kerala made Scottish porridge for us when we visited him in Edinburgh – Scotland. It tastes different from the oatmeal porridge I am used to making. And I am definitely going to make this back home and why not??..variety only makes life interesting!

Oats – 5 tbsp

Water – 1 cup


Honey / sugar – optional

Mixed dry fruits – 1 tbsp

Fresh fruit – banana / blueberries etc

  1. In a pan boil water and oats with salt together with occasionally adding few tsps of milk till whole thing turns to a lumpy mass.
  2. Serve in a bowl.
  3. Top it up with required milk, fresh fruits, dry fruits and sweetner.
