This is a no cook recipe, popularly served for breakfast. The preparation for this breakfast begins at night.

Simply take oats and milk in a mason jar or a glass bowl, mix well and keep in the refrigerator overnight. In the morning, the oats mixture looks soft, thick and creamy like a pudding. Before serving, top it with your favourite fruits and dry fruits, and serve it chilled. For sweetening, dizzle some honey or add 1 tea spoon maple syrup or just add 1/2  a tea spoon powdered sugar.
