This is my contribution for WBB July Oats.
When I came to know this month’s theme was Oats, I was a little doubtful whether I would be able to participate . Apart from making porridge I had never tried any thing else with oats.
But then Asha’s post inspired me to try some thing. She had powdered the oats to make parathas. That was it.
I too powdered the oats to make halwa for kids. I know calorie conscious grown ups may hesitate to eat it .
So heres the recipe.
1/2 cup Quaker Quick Cooking Oatmeal
2 tsp to 1 Tbsp ghee
1/4 cup sugar
Approx. 1/2 cup mixture of water and milk ( the ratio of milk and water should be half milk and half water)
a pinch cardamom powder
Nuts and raisins ( optional)
1.Powder the oats in the grinder.
2.Roast the powdered oats in ghee, till it changes colour and gives a nice aroma.
3.Add the water milk mixture and stir well.
4. Add the sugar and cardamom powder and mix well. Cover and cook for few minutes , till sugar dissolves.
5. Mix in the nuts and raisins and serve.
