Oats Kheer | Oats Payasam

Oats Kheer | Oats Payasam
A healthy and yummy dessert

As we all know, whole grain products like oats are so rich in nutrients and fiber. Now-a-days oats are the most eaten breakfast cereal in most households due the health benefits they possess. They help in lowering cholesterol levels and are full of antioxidants and contain many more health benefits. 

There are many types of oats like whole oats, oat grouts, steel cut oats, rolled oats, instant oats etc. For my recipe I used Steel-cut oats. These are made by passing oat grouts through steel cutters which chop each one into pieces. Steel cut oats are very nutritious as they contain the whole grain including the oat bran.

Let's see the recipe:


Ingredients:
  • ½ cup Oats (I used Steel-cut Oats)
  • 1 ½ cup Sugar (Can be replaced with any sugar substitute)
  • 5 cups Milk
  • Few cashews, raisins, cardamom
Preparation:
  1. Cook oats: Pour 1 ½ cups of water (for 1 cup oats use 3 cups water) and bring to a boil. 
  2. Wash and add the oats to the hot water, mix it well and allow cooking. Don’t add any salt. 
  3. When it’s cooked, turn off the flame and keep aside.
  4. Pour milk in a big pot and bring to a boil. 
  5. Then lower the flame and add sugar + cardamom + raisins and mix well. 
  6. When the sugar melts add the cooked oats and stir well to make sure there are no lumps.
  7. Keep it on low flame for some time and turn off the flame.
  8. Dry roast the cashews and add them to the cooked payasam / kheer.
  9. That’s all!! Great tasting oats kheer is ready.
  10. This makes a perfect sweet dish during festivals too.
