Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: Indian
Servings: 2


  • Pressure cooker, 3 Litre


  • ½ cup Instant Oats I used Quaker easy cook
  • 6 Flakes of Garlic
  • 3 tablespoon Carrot chopped
  • ½ Tomato chopped
  • 1 Green chilli Chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon Fennel crush slightly
  • 2 tablespoon Coriander leaves chopped
  • Salt to taste
  • ¼ cup grated Coconut Or Low fat Milk - ¼ cup


  • Pressure cook everything with enough water (just add to cover the oats), except coconut or milk in the above ingredients up to 2 whistles.
  • Open the cooker and mash it well with a masher. Make sure you mash the garlic properly so that the flavor blends well.
  • Extract milk from the coconut by grinding it with lukewarm water and squeeze out the milk.
  • Add the extracted milk or low fat milk to the porridge and mix well and just heat a little.


  • Instead of extracting coconut milk, you can also add it grated as such.
