  1. Bring water and salt to a boil in a small saucepan. Stir in oats, reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid is absorbed, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat, cover and let stand 2 to 3 minutes. Top with raisins, cashews and curry powder.
  • Overnight oats variation: Combine ½ cup old-fashioned rolled oats with ½ cup water and a pinch of salt in a jar or bowl. Cover and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, add toppings, as desired. Eat cold or heat up. Makes about 1 cup.
  • Steel-cut oats variation: Bring 1 cup water and a pinch of salt to a boil in a small saucepan. Add ⅓ cup steel-cut oats, reduce heat to a bare simmer, cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid is absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand, covered, 2 to 3 minutes. Add toppings. Makes about ¾ cup.
  • People with celiac disease or gluten-sensitivity should use oats that are labeled “gluten-free,” as oats are often cross-contaminated with wheat and barley.

This has wonderful flavor and is now a favorite way to fix oatmeal. I used a sweet curry from Penzeys and it gave it just the right amount of spice. The cashews and raisins balanced out more savory and sweet notes. Great.
