Now coming to today's special post...

We were expecting guests on a sunday evening and I was so swamped with some other chores that I had no time to make any dessert. I had to make something in a jiffy. I wanted to make something interesting and healthy. Can desserts be all that healthy at all?? Ok that discussion is for another time..We at home have a sweet tooth and so anything sweet just vanishes in no time! Thats when I thought that I should make some sweet with oats. I looked through the pantry and picked up oats, coconut powder and sugar and immediately I knew what I had to prepare!! The Seven-cup sweet which Amma makes is our all time fav. So I adapted a similar formula except that I replaced Besan (Chick pea flour) with Oats. Lets see how I made..

Ingredients - 

Oats (Old fashioned Rolled) 1 cup
Coconut Powder (dry or fresh) 1 cup
Nuts (Powdered) (Cashews, Almonds, Walnuts) 1 cup
Sooji (Semolina/Bombay Rava) 2 Tbsp
Condensed Milk 1 Tbsp or Milk Powder 2 Tbsp (Optional)
Ghee 4 tsp
Milk 2 cups
Cardamom Powder 1/2 tsp

Method Of Ingredients - 

Coarse grind the oats. And powder the nuts. 
In a non stick sauce pan, add 1 tsp of ghee and roast the oats along with powdered nuts, sooji and coconut. (I used grated frozen coconut).

Add milk and let the whole mixture simmer for a couple min and then add sugar, cardamom powder and keep stirring and adding a tsp of ghee at a time when the mixture becomes sticky. Take care not to burn the sweet, keep stirring carefully.

When the whole mixture becomes a single mass and loses the stickiness, thats when it is done and is ready to be taken off the flame.

I used a parchment paper in a plate and transferred the sweet on it and spread another parchment paper and smoothened  it with a rolling pin. I let it cool for a few min and then with a greased knife / pizza cutter, cut it into desired shape and let it cool. After it is cooled (refrigerate if required) the pieces come out very easily. Any other procedure to cut out burfis is fine too..

Needless to say we all enjoyed this variation very much and so can you!!

Makes approx 25 pieces
Preparation Time 30 min

    @ Sushma - I think I put it on the flame for about 20 min ..the key is to put more sugar ..try this and let me know
