Essential Porridges: celebrating the beauty and goodness in a bowl of porridge

5 October 2022 10:50 am

A bowl of porridge resonates well with anyone. Especially in Asia and Middle East – porridge is an essential meal option for the morning. It is nutritious, filling and also cost effective. On 10th October, we get the opportunity to celebrate the World’s Porridge Day. So here at Lanka Woman, as avid fans of porridge we thought about providing you with a recipe of porridges which you can enjoy in hot and cold weather. 

 For hot weather – a bowl of porridge with cooling effect 

  • 500 milliliters of thick coconut milk 
  • 75 grams of sago 
  • 400 grams of finely chopped ripe mangoes 
  • 100 – 150 grams of quick oats 
  • 50 grams of sugar or kithul jaggery

Let’s make it 
Soak sago for 30 minutes prior to cooking. Set this aside. Get a deep bottom pan and boil 400 milliliters of water. When the water is boiling add the soaked sago after draining the excess water – and stir till it looks clear. Then add the oats and stir it quickly since it will burn otherwise. While the oats are cooking add the jaggery and half the coconut milk. Now oats stir this and ensure the oats and sago are well cooked. Turn off the heat, and add the remaining coconut milk (this makes it extra creamy). If needed add   more sugar and pinch of salt. Serve in small bowls, garnished with mangoes. A truly delicious treat to beat the heat.
