4) 2 1/2 Cups Water or Vegetable Stock
5) Salt and Pepper to taste
6) 1 Tablespoon Butter

Preparation:
1) Melt Butter in a Pan. Add the carrots and peas and cook for about 5 minutes until soft.
2) Add the oatmeal and fry for a minute or two.
3) Add salt and pepper and add water.
4) Bring it to a boil and let it simmer on a slow flame for about 5 minutes.
5) Ready to be served. This is a hearty soup. Can be served as is.

  2. Thanks Shanthi. I just checked your recipe too. I love that you have added rasam to your porridge. That should give it the added punch.
