Oatmeal Kulfi with Almond Butter

Oatmeal kulfi? Surprises?

Well, you ought not be, since it is coming from me! Yes, now you already know that I have been experimented with different healthy oatmeal recipes, and this oatmeal dessert is a step in that direction.










Yes, it's oats again - the key ingredient in this creamy, thick, and delectable kulfi, though without the addition of cream. Oats has this supreme quality to turn creamy and thick when blended with liquid. This makes it a healthier alternative to cream, which is loaded with calories and gives you no additional health benefits.

Rich in fiber, oat powder has become my go-to ingredient for all recipes. I try to include this healthy cereal grain in everything I make or bake these days. Yes, it gives us unmatched health benefits. In fact, I want everyone to turn to using oats and substitute cream with this healthy cereal. Take my words for it - you won't ever remorse the decision.My dear friend Ritu Mendiratta knows it better. She shares some of the healthi…

Sweet Mango Chutney With Jaggery: Aam Chunda With Gur Powder/Shakkar

Raw mango chutney is loved by one and all. The only thing that stops me from making this sweet and tangy chutney is its sweet part. Yes, it uses a good amount of sweetness. Ideally mango chutney is made with sugar. But I tend to avoid sugar wherever I can. So I have gone ahead with making the raw mango chutney with jaggery/gur. I had bought jaggery from my home town of Patiala and it came in handy for this easy mango chutney recipe with gur.

Last year, I had tried the mango chutney taking inspiration from Anita Chahal aunty ji.  I have been trying to avoid making this chutney, since it uses a good amount of sugar/sweetener. Nevertheless I could not stop myself from making mango chutney for the season after Anita Chahal aunty ji posted the raw mango chutney in our food group  Healthy Recipes by Homemakers.
My mouth started to water every time I scrolled down the page and came across aunty ji's chutney. The day she had shared raw mango dip was my Savitri Amavasya fast. So I promise…

How To Make Khakhra: Healthy Snack With Oats

You have heard or tried or tasted Gujarati khakhra, right? I have tried this savory snack with oatmeal. So this makes a healthy recipe with oatmeal. Yay!
I had never imagined I would be making khakhras one day, that too using oats. I had never tasted this Gujarati savory snack earlier until a neighboring Bengali aunt gifted us a packet last Diwali. Hubby loved these crispy snacks, which are traditionally made using whole wheat flour and besan (chickpea flour/gram flour) with a hint of jeera (cumin seeds).

I still haven't checked the traditional Gujarati recipe, so I cannot claim what all gets into the making of khakra, which is savored with pickle or chutney.
Last night, before making chapatis for dinner, I was surfing the Internet when a khakra recipe surfaced. I simply glanced over it to see how this snack is prepared. To my delight, it wasn't a tough job.
So I decided to make khakhras myself, since hubby loves these. But since we are not buying anything outside these days,…
