This recipe came about following a class on Indian food at Tony Tan's cooking school.
He had used poha, a beaten or rolled rice flake, that looks like rolled oats, to some extent. The dish that we ate was like a rice pudding made in the oven.
Although I have no food allergies or intolerances, that I am aware of, the thought crossed my mind that it should be easy enough to substitute the rolled oats for these poha flakes in my porridge, since there were still some sitting there.
The idea of using rice flakes is probably second nature to those individuals with gluten intolerance, but I decided to post the recipe anyway.
It is basically porridge with whatever you desire to add to it to suit your taste.
You can change the milk to skim milk, or just use water.
I used kithul treacle because it was there in the pantry.
