Healthy Oats Payasam(Kheer)

 
Ingredients
  • Oats – half cup
  • Powdered Jaggery – half cup ( increase or decrease as per taste)
  • Coconut milk 1 cup
  • Water half cup
  • Cardamom powder a pinch
  • Ghee half spoon
  • Cashew, raisins and Badam (Almond). 2 each chopped or cut into two
  • Dry coconut – cut into pieces
Method
  • Take a heavy bottom vessel and cook the oats with water just enough for oats to cook. Do not make it to thick like a paste. It must be in a running consistency, but not too watery either.
  • Once the oats is cooked include the jaggery powder to the boiling oats.
  • Furthermore, once jaggery melts and blended well with oats, add the coconut milk and simmer and cook for not more than 2 to 3 min.
  • Add a pinch of cardamom powder mix well and turn off the stove.
  • In a small pan, add half teaspoon ghee and sauté the nuts and raisins along with chopped dry coconut.
  • Add the sautéed nuts and coconut pieces to the payasam.
Enjoy the yummy healthy oats payasam.  
 
Note:
  • Quantity of jaggery can be increased or decreased as per your taste.
  • The same recipe can be done using broken wheat or dahlia.
  • Coconut milk can be replaced with regular full fat milk.
  • Lastly, adding dry coconut pieces is a choice. But it surely gives you the crunch while eating.
  • This sweet can be consumed either hot or cold.
