Cinnamon Oatmeal: An Ayurvedic Twist To The Humble Dish

This simple cinnamon oatmeal recipe is the perfect dessert for cosy winter evenings, but it can be enjoyed almost any time of the year as well.

Ayurvedic Benefits

Its subtle sweetness and fragrant spices are great for balancing the aggravated kapha dosha, which tends to make you stiff, anxious and bloated during the colder months. The spices help melt the excess Kapha, while the oatmeal helps and rekindle the doused digestive fire.

Oatmeal's warm, soft consistency makes it easier to digest than other frozen, cold desserts, which can cause many imbalances in digestion. The cardamom in the recipe calms and soothes any erratic system in the body. It also alleviates bloating and constipation and releases tension and spasms. This Ayurvedic dessert is low in carbs, easy to digest and easy to make.

How to prepare:

  • Soak 5 badams (almonds) in water the night before you decide to make the dish.

  • The next morning, peel the soaked almonds and blend with ⅓ cup of oats.

  • Put the blended oats and almonds in a pot

  • Add ¼ tsp. of cardamom seeds (elaichi), ¼ tsp. of cinnamon (dalchini), 1 tsp of ghee, 1 tsp of honey, and one cup of milk to the mix.

  • Stir the mixture until it boils. Then simmer the heat and cook until the oatmeal is soft.

  • Garnish with a pinch of cinnamon and serve it hot.

Desserts don’t get any easier than this sweet, gooey, fragrant oatmeal. Not only is it quick and simple to make, it’s also Ayurveda approved, which means it’s healthy, wholesome, sattvic (promoting purity), and tridoshic (appropriate for all body types). Happy eating!
