Have you ever imagined eating oatmeal with a chop stick? It’s so much fun!!! After discovering this Chinese Oatmeal recipe in my beloved kitchen I usually eat oatmeal with a chopstick. I feel so excited with the thought of it and brings so much pleasure within me. It’s a great way to break the monotony of oatmeal.
I came up with this recipe while I was craving for Hakka noodle at an odd hour. Yes, it was such an odd hour that I could not have ordered it for takeout neither did I have the noodles at home. I only had these steel cut oatmeal in my kitchen pantry. Now when I think about it I saved on lot of calories by not having noodles at home 🙂 . I kept wondering on how to satisfy my cravings for quite some time. My hunger pangs were increasing every minute. Finally, I heated little oil in a wok and added all the available vegetables in my refrigerator and Chinese flavorings. Then just tossed oatmeal to it with a sigh!!! Once it was done I kept looking at my plate for a while as I was skeptical in eating my own recipe. Suddenly it struck me to get a chopstick and hesitantly I took a bite of Chinese Oatmeal. I was zapped with its taste. I took another bite and kept on eating this dish until my plate was clean. By the time I finished this oatmeal lunch a big smile came on my face and I felt super satisfied. I did not miss noodles any more. 🙂
Amazing!!! I still can’t believe the versatility of oatmeal and its wonderful flavor that blends so well with almost any type of recipe. I am super happy to create Chinese Oatmeal and I regularly enjoy oatmeal lunch with chopsticks. With some improvisation and making it a one pot recipe I am sharing my favorite lunch with you all.
This Indo Chinese flavored oatmeal is so healthy and filling, full of whole grains and perfect to satisfy your Chinese cravings in a healthy way that you won’t miss the calorie laden Hakka noodles any more. 🙂
