I used to have oatmeal when I was younger and with my parents during Sahar in Ramadan. Nowadays I just have a plain bowl of cereal. I have to say, the oatmeal was better. Lots more energy in it than a plain bowl of cereal. It used to get me going all the day without even a hint I was hungry. Now I get hunger pangs around 3 hours before Iftar normally.
Note to self: Might want to add some boiled eggs or a paratha to the list of morning Sahar. Problem is, I don't know how a Aaalu ka Paratha with Cereal and milk is going to act up in my stomach. Guess we need to test that don't we.
