This easy, aromatic Chai Spiced Porridge with Passion Fruit recipe takes ordinary breakfast oats to a completely new level.
What is Chai?
As wholesome and warming as porridge undeniably is it can get a little monotonous. So I thought I’d spice it up a bit by using one of my favourite flavour combinations – chai. Chai tea is a beverage originating in India, made by brewing black tea with aromatic spices, often served with milk. These spices typically include cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, ginger and nutmeg.
Chai tea has in recent years also become popular in the West and all major supermarkets usually carry a selection of instant chai teas. I am not crazy about ordinary black tea, but spicy chai tea, with its refreshing aroma, is a far more exciting beverage. If you have never had it I recommend you give it a try.
CHAI SPICED PORRIDGE WITH PASSION FRUIT
Some chai tea recipes also use black peppercorns and I thought they would be a great addition to my chai spiced porridge. It’s really up to you how peppery you’d like your porridge to be. A good pinch of pepper was enough for me.
Although I wanted to add a kick to my chai spiced porridge recipe, it wouldn’t really work just as a savoury dish so I added a bit of sugar to it too. The crunchy, zingy passion fruit sprinkled on top completes this ultimate energy boosting, delicious wake-me-up porridge recipe.
Wake up and smell that porridge:)
- 1 cup porridge oats
- 1 cup water
- 3/4 cup milk of your choice
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/3 teaspoon each ground ginger cardamom, cloves, nutmeg

Combine the oats with the water, milk, spices and 1 tablespoon of sugar. Bring to boil, lower the heat and cook for 3 minutes stirring often. Serve with passion fruit and a sprinkling of demerara sugar. Makes 2 servings.
