Chicken and Oats Soup

It’s been a cold and cloudy morning with chill breeze. When I got up in the morning, I could not see the opposite apartment as it is covered with dense fog. I was not in a mood to enter kitchen to make piping hot breakfast….rather want to tuck down under the warm blanket and hug my darling Lil’M and sleep for some more time.
But I was feeling peckish at that early hour in the morning….may be because I had very early dinner last night….…so throwed my laziness and entered kitchen to make some piping hot food which is indulging and comforting…but not elaborate…All I could think of was soup…as I already told you about my love for comforting soups…I thought of making Oats soup as it is very simple in making and can be made in no time…
Chicken and Oats Soup
I make this chicken and oats soup mostly in seher, during Ramadan fasting’s. This time I used curried chicken pieces, which were lying in the fridge from yesterday night’s dinner where I made chicken khorma to pair up with jeera rice.

By the time the soup was ready my darling little sister also got up and we two had our chairs in the balcony to sit and enjoy the magical winter morning....throwing ourselves in warm clothes and wrapping the fingers around the bowl of hot comforting soup and setting myself free to soak in the serenity of the surroundings…and planning for the day is something I call….’BLISS’.

NOTES:
  • The soup thickens as it turns cool. So remember to turn off when there is enough water in the soup.
  • I will strain the coriander and mint leaves before adding oats to the soup.

VARIATIONS:
  • You can add sweet corn or baby corn to this soup.
  • I sometimes use curried chicken to make this soup. I shred the chicken pieces before adding it to the broth. This gives amazing taste to the soup.
