The kids are at school and nursery. Time for an indulgent breakfast in an unusually quiet house with nothing more than the bowl and last nights episode of “Call the midwife”.
30g porridge oats
150 ml koko or other milk
3 cardamon pods, slightly split
3 dried chopped apricots
1 plum, chopped
1 mere drop of rose water
Add everything except the plum to the pan and bring to a bubble.
Bubble for a few minutes
Ladle lovingly into your bowl and scatter with chopped plum.
Devour , savouring the mildly coconutty and Turkish delight flavours.
