Tasty Facts

The standard proportions of oatmeal and liquid are 1:3. For example, half a glass of oatmeal is poured into one and a half glasses of liquid. In this case, you get a liquid porridge that can satisfy morning hunger. For viscous porridge, use the proportions 1:2 (half a glass of flakes 1 glass of liquid), for thick – 1:1.5 (half a glass of flakes – a quarter to a full glass of liquid). By liquid is meant water or milk, or a mixture of them in an arbitrary ratio. For tasty, but not very high-calorie oatmeal, it is recommended to use water and milk in half.
