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.

Eggless Cake Without Raising Agents: A No Baking Powder, No Baking Soda Sponge Cake Recipe

When you are able to bake an eggless cake without raising agents, your happiness knows no bounds, right? This is exactly what I am in for today. What started as an experiment has worked out wonders for me.


I was trying to hone my cake baking skills while learning a few baking basics. Then struck this idea of baking a cake without baking powder or baking soda. A loved one is suffering from histamine sensitivity, and these chemical agents trigger urticaria, which gives me goosebumps. So I decided to go the other way round - baking an eggless cake without raising agents.

You need a light flour here - something that would effectively replace maida/all-purpose flour/refined flour/white flour. I remember one dhaba wala telling me once about how they replace maida sometimes - using a mix of jau and rice flour.

So this is exactly what I needed. This has given me one of the simplest yet tastiest cakes. Please do not change the flours, as I am unsure how any other flour would work here. I will…

Instant Aam Papad (Sada) With Jaggery: Sweet & Tangy Mango Slices

Aam papad has been a hot favorite since childhood. I do not remember how many times I have enjoyed these sweet & tangy mango sheets, though no one from my mom's side ever tried making them at home. After marriage, my mother in law, who is an awesome cook, made these savory & sweet mango pulp slices for me. I must tell that she makes the best mango pickle in the world - which is both sweet & sour. She made two buckets full for me after she found that I love aam achaar.

Who does not like sweet and tangy mango leather? Our generation has grown up relishing aam papad- wonder what all the present generation is missing out on! So this instant aam sada or papad recipe was born after my dear friend Poonam Bachhav had shared her aam papad post. Her post was the ultimate trigger for me to come up with my own instant Odia version. Poonam is the real Annapurna. I love the way she picks healthy ingredients to cook up deliciousness in the kitchen. Poonam blogs at Poonam Bachaav dot…
