Winter months are undeniably the best months of the year. Unfortunately, though, these months aren’t half as friendly for your waistline as they are for those amazing outdoor party scenes.
After all, the party season, the food, and sweet cravings during these months can totally reflect on your waist, hips, and God knows, where else.
But, what if I told you that you can enjoy a dessert that can be prepared in 10 minutes without burdening your calorie intake too much. All this, while getting some amazing nutritional gains.
Don’t believe me? Check out this oats kheer recipe:
1 cup oats
2 cups toned milk
1 tsp elaichi (cardamom) powder
1 carrot, grated
Jaggery to taste
2 tbsp desiccated coconut
1 tsp Ghee
1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
1 tsp flax seeds
1 tsp soaked chia seeds
1. Heat the ghee in a pan and roast the walnuts, almonds, and pistachios in it. Once they’re crispy and red, crush them into coarse chunks using your mortar and pestle. Set aside.
2. In another pan, combine the milk, half a cup of water, and the elaichi powder and bring it to a boil.
3. Now, add the oats and jaggery. Boil the mixture till the oats swell up. Just before the mixture reaches the desired consistency, add the grated carrot and bring it a boil. Turn off the heat.
4. Scoop the mixture in a bowl and garnish with roasted nuts, raisins, flax seeds, chia seeds, pomegranate seeds, and desiccated coconut and enjoy the goodness.
