How To Make Oatmeal Delicious: Nutty, No Sugar Kulfi


Summers are here, and you cannot wait to indulge in guilty eating. Perhaps, kulfis, desserts, and ice creams are a hot favorite in the summer season. But what if you are watching weight? Can you indulge in a guilty treat? Perhaps not, But there's a way out! Yes, I prepared this healthy, nutty oatmeal kulfi at my mom's place a few days back, and surprisingly, the no sugar kulfiwas loved by my brother, who hates oats - to be precise.

It was only after he had tasted it did I unravel the "oatmeal" secret.

But no sugar does not make it a diabetes-friendly recipe, for it uses honey as a sweetener.

 Since this kulfi with oatmeal got his stamp of approval, I knew I had the go-ahead to share this yummy summer delight with you all. I am sure you will like it too, if not fall in love with this healthy dessert.

 I call it healthy but not the healthiest dessert, because it still uses dry or evaporated milk powder.
Other than that, it is loaded with roasted nuts.
It comprises a base of almond meal - which is another nutty twist to the recipe.
Finally, it has my favorite roasted oatmeal, which raises its health quotient- perhaps making it a healthier dessert than the market junk.

You have got to be a little innovative to explore the potential uses of the humble oats.
To me, oats are a healthy addition to my meals.

Did I say this no sugar kulfi with oatmeal was relished by my one-year-old niece - my paro?

So  let's see how to make oatmeal delicious.

Ingredients
1/2 cup- roasted powdered oats/oatmeal
1/2 cup- almond meal (here's how to make almond meal - click on the video below )
1/4 cup- evaporated milk/ dry milk powder
2 tbsp or more - honey (as per your taste)
Roasted nuts - almonds, pistachio, walnuts


How to make oatmeal delicious

1. Dry roast oats and grind them to powder. This is your oatmeal.
Mix oatmeal with equal amount of water. Let oatmeal sit in that water.
2. Take homemade almond meal and mix it with the wet oatmeal. Give it a good mix and allow them to sit together in the water overnight or for 1 hour at least. I kept it overnight in the refrigerator.
3. Dry roast nuts and keep them aside.
4. Take the oatmeal-almond meal mixture and run it in the food processor.
5. Throw in dry milk powder. If you want a more intense flavor, you may double the amount of evaporated milk than given in the recipe.
6. Run everything in the grinder.
7. Next add honey and again run the processor.
8. Pour the kulfi mix in a kulfi mould or any container of your choice.
9. Thrown in roasted nuts and allow it to freeze for 3-4 hours.
10. Enjoy yummy, oatmeal kulfi guilt free or less guilty indulgence.

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…
