Banana Apple Porridge

A healthy duet of grains like broken wheat and oats with fruits like banana and apples, this porridge is flavoursome and truly tempting. Sautéing the broken wheat and oats before cooking chases away the raw smell, while the cinnamon powder and fruits enhance the flavour and aroma further. The Banana and Apple Porridge is an ideal way to start a morning, as it not only gives a lot of energy but is also brimming with calcium, protein, fibre, etc.

Preparation Time: 5 minutes.
Cooking Time: 12 minutes.
Serves 4.

1 cup sliced banana
½ cup apple cubes (unpeeled)
¼ cup broken wheat (dalia), washed and drained
¼ cup quick cooking rolled oats
2 cups low-fat milk, 99.7% fat-free
2 tsp low-fat butter
1 tbsp powdered sugar
¼ tsp cinnamon (dalchini) powder

1. Heat the butter in a pressure cooker, add the broken wheat and sauté on a slow flame for 1 minute.
2. Add the oats and sauté on a slow flame for another 2 minutes.
3. Add the milk and 1 cup of water, mix well and pressure cook for 2 whistles.
4. Allow the steam to escape before opening the lid.
5. Add the sugar and cinnamon powder, mix well and cool slightly.
6. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
7. Just before serving, add the banana and apples and mix well.
Serve immediately.

  1. Hello Ma’am, I followed the exact recipe, however, in the first whistle itself, the cracked wheat came out of the whistle making a huge noise and mess(Cracked wheat out of whistle instead of just steam). Although I slowed down the flame, the same happened during the second whistle. I did not do any changes in steps of the recipe, however, I must admit, that I added 1 cup of milk and 1 cup of water for 1/4 cup of oats and cracked wheat (I followed the recipe on Tarladalal website). Is this the reason that the recipe went wrong? If not what must have been gone wrong? Besides, at the end, it did taste good, but it all got very messy and my pressure cooker and kitchen were ruined.
