Healthy Recipe With Oatmeal Procedure
oatmeal recipe

  1. To begin with we need to make clarified butter from cream. Typically we collect cream from skimmed milk after boiling in a container for a week and then extract ghee or clarified butter from it.
  2. Take a big vessel. Grease it with oil and then pour the cream into it. Cook on a low flame while stirring intermittently. It will take time & effort and you have got to be patient. Nevertheless, it's well worth the efforts. When you get the thin layer of oil separating from the solids, sieve it and keep aside.
  3. Then add water to the solids and heat again on a slow flame. Again, you will separate oil from solids. Do this 2-3 times or if you are okay with little amount of clarified butter in the recipe, you may stop here and use these solids for pedas.
  4. Ideally I try to add more and more water to the ghee leftover to remove most of its ghee content. I add water to the leftover solids and churn out little ghee and then again add more water when the milk solids are dry. I follow this process 3-4 times.LOL
  5. When you are left with this ghee leftover, mix the same with oats and run in a food processor. I used my grinder.
  6. Add sugar or gur and green cardamom and run the grinder again.
  7. Take out in a bowl and make cute little balls. If you add less amount of oat powder or do not add oats to this, you will get perfect pedas, just like those that you savor in Mathura :) I have made pedas with paneer. Check here.
  8. Enjoy healthy oats pedas.

Homemade Edible Powders: Beetroot, Onion, Garlic, Ginger, Lemon, Orange, Sambar, Kurma, Garam Masala

The title says it all. This post is all about edible powders that can be used as flavoring agents, natural color, and to make food visually attractive. What more do we need? Though I am not too much in favor of drying food and storing the same, this is the best option for those days when these veggies are out of season. During the season, please make it a point to enjoy these fresh and flavorful. There's nothing better and healthier than fresh produce, right?

Okay so the idea to make these powders popped up in my mind as I had too many beetroots at home. When nobody was too eager to have them, the best way to still consume these beauties was to sundry them to powder. I did exactly that.





Then I wondered if I can sundry lemon peels into powder just like we do to orange peels. I have been using orange peels as a face pack thus far. But since the baking bug has bitten me badly, I plan to use it as an edible powder for cakes and cookies too. Fingers crossed for the results though, sin…

The Best Multigrain Digestives: An Airfryer Recipe

The best multigrain digestives? I know I have shared too many digestives recipes but this one is my best. To be frank, I experiment, relish, share, and post the same for you all and then forget all about it because it's time to experiment again with new ingredients. So today it was another kind of digestives - relished by one and all. My cookie making spree has turned my cookie hater hubby into someone who has started to munch on these baked beauties.



Before sharing the simple cookie recipe, it is time to go through oats benefits. You are already aware of my love for oats. One reason you rarely find my recipes without this fibrous cereal grain. Did you go through the fiber benefits?











Go to my fiber benefits post to get deeper insight into the need for including fiber in your diet.



Ingredients
1 cup- oat flour
3/4 cup- whole wheat
1/4 cup- bran
1/4cup- ragi
2 tbsp- roasted quinoa powdered (roasted quinoa adds a nutty flavor to the recipe - substitute with almond powder if you do not h…

Diabetic Diet Cake With Watermelon: A Vegan Recipe

While people are still debating whether watermelon is a diabetes-friendly fruit, I still stick to my notion that diabetics can have this fruit for its sheer hydration effect. Not only this, the fruit is loaded with minerals, nutrients, and antioxidants that make it a health-friendly food. However, diabetics with kidney issues should avoid watermelon. Anyway, let's come back to the watermelon cake recipe for diabetics. Well, this cake uses another fruit - banana- which even I do not think is diabetes-friendly. But I went ahead with including a banana for this recipe merely to keep the fat content low. I hope you all know that a banana is a good substitute for an egg for an eggless cake recipe.

Since an egg is also loaded with saturated fat, diabetics should avoid it at any cost. So I had to choose between an egg and a banana for this diabetes-friendly cake, and ended up voting for this humble fruit - which is one of my favorites too. Yes!

When you think of a vegan diabetes-friendl…
