INDIAN MITHAI OVERNIGHT OATS
February has started off with a bang, with so many positive beginnings, ideas and results. It also entailed a spontaneous vacation that proved to be one of the best trips of my life – but more on that later. This also means I have been incredibly busy multi-tasking, and it has been so exhausting but ever so rewarding. Inspiration has been flooding in from every corner.
Today we bring East and West together. Overnight oats is a popular breakfast as its easy, healthy, nutritious, and tends to sit well with every kind of picky eater. If you’ve been following Kitchen Therapy for some time now, you will notice a lack of Indian touches to the recipes. My upbringing around the world has me favouring other cuisines more often than Indian. Additionally, I believe that there are many amazing Indian food bloggers offering sumptuous options.
But this concoction is something I could not resist to share. I have the elderly in mind with this recipe, and it has been tried and tested successfully with them.
I use the delicious SPRIG Bourbon Vanilla Extract, Cinnamon and Cardamom
