Is Apple Cinnamon Oats an Indian recipe? If not then are there any variations how it is prepared elsewhere in the world?

Can you provide an example as to how that dish is prepared in Indian Cuisine? Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal is very popular in the U.S., but it might be a completely different dish than what you're speaking of. – Jacob G Feb 17 '12 at 14:38
Do you mean Native American or Indian? None of those ingredients sound particularly unique to the Indian subcontinent, I'd associate that more with Scotland than anything else. Unless you mean something other than the breakfast cereal dish? – Yamikuronue Feb 17 '12 at 14:38
@Jacob G Sure! Here is the link. FYI: . And yes, there are so many other recipes there that may have variations in North america as well. – Maxood Feb 17 '12 at 14:50

Looking at the recipe, it appears to be just a basic porridge. So no, I wouldn't say that's unique to Indian Cuisine; wikipedia suggests it's "traditional and common in English-speaking countries, Nordic countries, and Germany". This is specifically rolled-oat porridge:

"Rolled oat porridge is common in England, Australia, New Zealand, North America and Scandinavia. It is known as simply "porridge" or, more commonly in the United States and often in Canada, "oatmeal"."

Wiki suggests wheat, maize, and rice porridge are more traditional in India, so I suspect this is a modern adaptation owing to the ubiquity of rolled oats in supermarkets.

Apples and Cinnamon is arguably one of the tastiest flavors of instant oatmeal in the US. It fills the bellies of countless American kids before school, and surely some of their parents too.
