This is the regular traditional oats made into an African swallow food. This is the wet method. You can also make it into
for same purpose.
Measure the Oats into the jar of your blender.
Pour 3 cups of warm water into the blender.
Allow to soak for about 45 secs to develop the stretch. Then blend till smooth.
Pour into a 2 Quart sauce pan and place on a lit stove. Stir continuously until it comes together. (Please don't leave unattended, it will burn. )
Allow to cool for about a minute then serve with any soup of your choice. You can wrap in sean wrap and put in warmer if not ready to serve. Enjoy!!!
I like my oatmeal swallow to have some texture (like garri) so I don't blend it too smooth.
If you want a very smooth texture, blend till it's very smooth or you
blend it dry till it's finely ground.
If you want it lighter/softer add an extra 1/2 cup of water while blending.
Remember to let it cool after cooking. It may seem too soft but cooling down will thicken it.
