Instant Snack With Oats/Amaranth: How to Make Oatmeal Delicious With A Garlicky Flavor; Option for Diabetics


Looking for a quick yet healthy snack for preschoolers? Perhaps you may even be looking for a diabetes-friendly snack idea? This is what you should be trying out instantly. The concept of healthy snacks is perfect for people like you and me, who are facing time constraints and are too busy for extensive cooking.
instant mix with oats
Our cooking marathons leave us exhausted, most of the time, isn't it? Never mind, today, I bring to you the instant oats mix recipe of my sister in law, though she makes it sans oats.

She would often tell me to give this instant oats mix a tempering with garlic, but I have not done so on previous occasions. This time it was different. I went ahead with her tempering advice, and here I am with my immensely flavorful oats mix recipe. This is a perfect diabetes-friendly recipe if you eliminate cornflakes because corn has a good amount of glucose and cornflakes are processed along with sugar.

This oats recipe is a must try for instant snack lovers as well as diabetic patients.

The instant oats mix is a people pleaser and promises to satiate your hunger pangs, for it is loaded with


  • fiber from oats
  • carbs from multigrain flakes and puffed rice
  • calories from flattened rice
Since it is rich in fiber and calories, you may feel full quickly. What more do you need?
This instant mix for diabetes is not for those who would love to keep munching on something all the time.

instant snack with amaranthrecipe


Garlic has immense health benefits for mankind. From lowering blood pressure to reducing plaque deposits and cholesterol levels, garlic is a must include ingredient for one and all (of course, those with certain religious affirmations may not use it).

Here's my detailed post on the benefits of garlic.
oats benefits recipes 


Ingredients

1cup - oats/amaranth
1/2 cup-poha (rice flakes/flattened rice)
1/2 cup- murmure (puffed rice)
1/4 Cornflakes/multigrain flakes/ragi flakes (optional - I have added to make it a complete meal)
handful of curry leaves
 mustard seeds for tempering
black salt
8-10 garlic cloves (you may skip for a Jain recipe)
2 tbsp- oil (olive or any plant-based oil)
1/2 tsp- ajwain/carom seeds
Turmeric
Nuts (I always use almonds, roasted black chana/ you may use peanuts as well)

Instant Mixture With Amaranth

I have used puffed amaranth. If your amaranth is not puffed, you will need to dry roast it first in a deep vessel in small amounts. Remember, the seeds will dance in the vessel and try to pop out of it. So it is advised to use a deep vessel.
Add oil to a pan.
When the oil is hot, throw in minced garlic and ajwain. Stir for a second.
Add salt, turmeric and a pinch of raw cane sugar or jaggery powder. It's optional.
Add curry leaves and roast until crispy. Add nuts and bhuna chana.
Throw in poha/rice flakes/puffed rice and roast. It's still better to use pre-roasted poha. I keep my poha roasted separately so added that.
Now add amaranth. Mix, stir, and enjoy healthylicious instant amaranth snack.

How to make oatmeal delicious: Instant Oats Mix With Garlicky Flavor

This instant mix with a garlicky flavor is unlike the ready-to-eat mixes available in the market. Garlic adds an aromatic, flavorful, and healthy touch to the instant mix recipe. It is exactly what you need to add zing to your evening snacks.

  • Dry roast oats. Keep aside in a wide bowl.
  • Add 1 tbsp of oil in a pan and drop in rice flakes. If you want to dry roast poha, you can skip adding oil here.
  • Take out poha in the oats bowl once it has been roasted.
  • In the same pan, add murmure and dry roast. Remove in the same plate as poha.
  • Dry roast the flakes - cornflakes, multigrain flakes.
  • Take the remaining oil in the pan.
  • Add chopped garlic cloves. When the cloves look almost roasted, add mustard seeds.
  • When mustard seeds splutter, add almonds and then curry leaves and roast for a minute.
  • Immediately add turmeric and black salt.
  • Stir and immediately add the roasted ingredients.
  • Stir for a while and check for salt.
  • Turn off the flame.
  • Allow the instant snack with oatmeal to cool down before storing it in an airtight container for your evening hunger pangs.
  • You may go further on an experimental mode with this instant oats mix by adding chopped onions and tomato and sprinkling a few drops of lime juice atop. Mix and enjoy a healthy bowl.

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…
