It’s always good to tantalize your taste buds with a scrumptious, creamy, and warm homemade oatmeal porridge.
Oats happens to be that one special ingredient that never went out of style with me. I tried all things oats and continue to be amazed at the number of recipe options available. Let’s quickly run through memory lane with the recipes I’ve done, I mean it’s the only honorable thing I can do for this versatile ingredient domesticated horses thrived on. You can do pancakes, waffles, oatmeal porridge, crepes well the list goes on but out of all my favorite and the easiest oats recipe is oatmeal porridge. All this time I’ve been cooking my oatmeal the conventional way so I wanted to try something new, behold turmeric Oatmeal porridge.
Turmeric is a very common ingredient in Sri Lanka, it’s not just used in cooking only but also used in many Ayurvedic medicines. We, Sri Lankans, add this to almost every single curry we make, it’s not just adding the dash of yellow color to the curry, it also allows the release of curcumin when used in cooking. According to Healthline, Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric, it has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant.
