How to make Hearty Grains and Seeds porridge sourdough bread?
You need following ingredients.
1) Flour: I used both bread flour and whole wheat flour. If you want you can entirely use whole wheat flour, but the bread will be dense.
2) Hearty Grains & Seeds porridge: I used Hearty Grains & Seeds by Soul Full Project, which is a blend of Whole Grain Oats, Oat Bran, Red Quinoa, Flax & Chia Seeds. If you are using separately add 75g of oats and oats bran, rest of red quinoa, flax, and chia seeds to make it to 125g
3) Salt: Adds flavor to the bread
4) Water: You must adjust water content of the dough as Hearty grains and seeds porridge contains water. Otherwise you will end up with a mushy dough.

Points to remember
While making the porridge you need to take extra care to prevent it from going Mushy. You can cook even in microwave. You need to cook until the water has just evaporated.
Oats tend to absorb lot of water so make sure to adjust the hydration. So, while doing autolyse if it looks like just mix that is fine as we are going to add more water through porridge as well as during the addition of salt.
If you want, you can add extra nuts like sesame seeds or chopped almonds.
You need to add this porridge as add on not substituted flour amount for it.
