Oats and Besan Kheer/Payasam for Blog Hop Wednesday

 Blog Hop Wednesday, New Event Kick-Started by Radhika of Tickling Palates.A Group of 40 Bloggers (could be even more) are paired together every week to try out recipes from their partner's blog!!!! I m sure, we will get to know more blogger's and get introduced to different recipes and much more than that!!!! A Big applause to Radhika, for taking so much pain (read interest) and Planning!!!! 
This week, i m paired with Nupur Mehra of UK Rasoi, a Budding Blogger from London!!! I tried her Oats and Besan Kheer!!!  A healthy recipe, will be liked by kids too!! 
I have tweaked the recipe a bit for my convenience/liking, So, Please follow the link above for the Original Recipe
Ingredients
500ml Milk
1/2 Cup Oats
1/4 Cup Besan
1/4 Cup Almonds, Chopped
1/2 Cup Sugar
Ghee for roasting the ingredients
Cardamom Crushed for flavor

Method
  • Boil Milk and let it Cool for some time. Heat a pan with little ghee, Roast the Almonds. 
  • Then add oats to the same pan and roast for a minute or two. Spread it on a plate, let it cool.
  • In the same pan, add a tsp of Ghee and roast the gram flour/besan, till a nice aroma arises. Spread it on a plate, and let it cool. 
  • Keep some Roasted almonds for  garnishing, take the rest in a mixer and powder it along with the roasted oats.
  • Take half the milk in a heavy-bottom pan and heat it in a low flame. Add the Oats-Almond Powder to the milk and Keep Stirring, so that it doesn't get burnt @ the bottom. The Milk should not be boiling while adding the powder, or else lumps will form!!! Let it cook in a slow flame for 5-10 minutes. The Mixture will begin to thicken. Switch off the flame.
  •  Take the rest of the Milk , Mix it well with Besan/Gram Flour. Cook the Besan Milk on a slow flame.
  • Add the Oats-Milk to this Besan Milk. Add Sugar and Stir well. Let it cook in a simmer flame for another 8-10 minutes. Add Crushed Cardamom and Put off the flame. Garnish with roasted almonds.
  • Serve Warm. 
This Kheer can be had as a breakfast porridge or as a light dessert too!!! We had it as a Dessert after Lunch!!! This Kheer can be served Chill, But my people, preferred it Warm!!!!

Notes
  1. Take care, while roasting the ingredients, a slight distraction can burn them!!!
  2. While Mixing besan with milk,though nupur has told it can be added straight after roasting the besan to the same pan, i had a small doubt of lumps, so i preferred to cool the besan and then mix it with milk, then take to the flame again. 
  3. I would recommend using boiled milk, coz  i have had some bad experience using fresh milk curdling, when used directly to make kheer. At the end, this is my personal experience.
