From ‘Indian Superfoods’ comes a super Porridge recipe!


On Tuesday I posted my review of chef Gurpareet Bains inagural ‘Indian Superfoods Supper Club’. I enjoyed Gurpareet’s food so much that I asked if I could reproduce one of the recipes from ‘Indian Superfood‘ here on the blog. That nice man Mr Bains said yes! and not only did Gurpareet agree to share a superfood recipe he agreed to share the super Porridge recipe!

Add the oats to a deep, heavy-based saucepan and cook over a low-medium heat until the oats change to a slightly darker colour as they roast – this should take 3-5 minutes. Remember to stir frequently.

Add all the remaining ingredients to the saucepan and mix well. Bring to the boil over a medium heat, then reduce to a gentle simmer and cook, uncovered for 10 minutes, stirring frequently.

Remove the pan from the heat and serve immediately, sprinkled with the extra almonds and dried cranberries.
