Daahlia – Golden oats

AKA Yellow oats
Dahlia with banana
These Oats are made with Milk and Turmeric. Turmeric is mainly used for health benefits but it also adds an interesting pungent flavour too that can be easily offset by some sweetness or by putting less in it. In India oats are called Dulia, we’ve called it Daahlia because it’s mixed with Turmeric making it look like Daal (lentil soup).
