3. Then pour into the porridge the right amount of oatmeal and mix. Cook porridge over low heat, stirring from time to time, so that the porridge is not burnt. Duration of cooking depends on the type of flakes, so we look at the exact time of cooking on the packaging from under the flakes. As a rule, for fast-cooking oatmeal the cooking time is 3-5 minutes, for large flakes such as "oat-flakes" - 10-15 minutes.
