People ask me to post healthy and easy breakfast recipes all the time, especially tasty oatmeal recipes. Now, I love oatmeal. I can eat oatmeal with just a little water and some nuts and raisins thrown in. My husband, however, hates oatmeal with a passion. So, sometimes I try new ways to make disguised oatmeal breakfasts. Some of these work, some don’t. Like, seriously! Sometimes he will eat oatmeal without even realizing what it is. So I thought I will quickly post one of the most successful disguised oatmeal recipes in my family while I eat breakfast. I believe this recipe works because it gives a flattened rice texture, and tastes very close to the classic Bengali “aam doi cheere” (mango yogurt and flattened rice).
I use no sweeteners. For me the sweetness of the mangoes and coconut work fine. But you can totally add a little bit of sugar or honey if you like. A healthier way to sweeten the oatmeal would be to add 8-10 raisins. Also, adding a little chopped almonds will give a nice textural contrast. I use Greek yogurt, but feel free to use regular plain yogurt.
