How to make Steel Cut Oats Porridge
Make sure you use steel cuts for this particular recipe. You can easily get steel cut oats online or in a supermarket. Start by heating ghee in a pan. Add the steel cut oats to it and gently roast for just a few minutes. Crush the green cardamom and add it to the oats while they are being roasted.
Steel cut oats take more time to cook than rolled oats, that's why we need to pressure cook them. Add the roasted oats to a pressure cooker and add 2 cups of water to it. Cook on a medium flame for 20 minutes.
Now open the lid of the cooker and place it on medium heat. Add 2 cups of milk, mix well and let it come to a boil. Now add powdered jaggery as per your taste and give a nice mix. Cook for 1-2 minutes more and turn off the flame.
Pour the porridge in a bowl, garnish with chopped banana slices and serve.
