Pakistani oat soup

IMG_0171

A dear Pakistani friend of mine sent me a bowl of this delicious soup on a cold Saudi day (60 degrees). I loved it so much that I had to get the recipe. This, of course meant I was to go over to her villa and watch her make it. I found that this process worked very well for me. Often times I had no idea what the ingredients were and it helped to actually watch the dish being made. This soup has remained a favorite especially for my daughter Saleeha who makes it weekly!  She made it and took these pictures and I am passing our recipe on to you. I hope you like it as much as we do!
