It has been long since I made some desserts at home. Wanted to try something quite healthy and easy. I have a huge pack of rolled oats and my hubby kept asking me to prepare something with it. I have been preparing oats uthappam all the time 😉 So made some of these barfi and came out very delicious.To avoid sugar, I have added jaggery. You can go ahead with sugar as well. Do give it a try.

Ingredients:

Oats Flour : 1.5 cups (take 1.5 cups of oats and grind to fine powder/Instant oats can also be powdered)

Almonds : 2 tablespoon

Cashews : 2 tablespoon

Walnuts : 2 tablespoon

Cardamom : 5 to 6 pieces

Raisins : 1 tablespoon

Jaggery : 3/4 cup( can reduce it to 1/2 cup/ also can be replaced by sugar)

Ghee : 3 tablespoon + extra to grease tray

Method:

  • Grind almonds, cashews, walnuts, cardamom to fine powder.( I could get 1 cup out of this)
  • In a pan, heat one tablespoon of ghee. When it is hot, roast oats flour and roast in low medium flame for 5 mins. (nice aroma would raise) Make sure not to over burn.Set aside.
  • Heat another tablespoon of ghee. When hot, add the ground  dry fruits powder and roast in low medium flame for 5 mins. Make sure not to over burn. Set aside.
  • Heat 1/2 tablespoon of ghee, add raisins and let it pop. Make sure not to over burn.
  • Heat jaggery with one to two tablespoon of water (in case of sugar, add sugar and water) and when it melts, add roasted oats flour, roasted dry fruits powder, raisins.
  • Cook in low flame. It mixes very fast and cooks within 5 mins. Add 1/2 to 1 tablespoon of ghee and cook.
  • It combines well and will come to the center of the pan. Stop the flame.
  • Now grease a tray with ghee.
  • Pour this barfi mixture and level it.
  • Let it cool for half hour to one hour.
  • Then cut it to pieces and store in an air tight container.

With the same you can make ladoo’s. Just by forming small balls out of it. It is a great tea time snack.
