I just noticed that something went wrong with my post this morning! My internet connection sometimes plays little jokes on me, so here comes the recipe:
1 tsp butter (in Ayurveda they use Ghee, which is clarified butter)
1 cup water
2 tsp Maple Syrup (or honey or any dark, warm sweetener you like)
1/16 tsp Cardamom
1/4 cup oatmeal
1/8 tsp cloves
Heat water, add all the ingredients and boil until oats are soft (usually takes around 4 minutes). I prefer the wholegrain, "harder" oats, they provide more nutrients than the "paper" ones.
A quick Ayurvedic excursion for the interested readers: Cloves bring heat to the surface, open the pores, and warm the liver. Cloves ground Vata. They have enough power to keep Kapha warm in the winter. A good winter breakfast for all three doshas. Cardamom counteracts the sliminess of oatmeal.
