Can you imagine doing a burfi or an Indian delicacy in merely 5 minutes? Had it not been one pot one shot, this might not be possible. Thanks to Rama Krishnan for coming up with OPOS and transforming the way we cook.

I may call this OPOS sweet or instant til burfi, which will be an instant hit with your loved ones. Sweet lovers or not, this burfi will get you accolades from everyone who gets to indulge in this simple Indian sweet recipe - a winter delicacy.

Ingredients: Instant til burfi
1 cup- amaranth seeds (puffed) - optional- you may increase the amount of til/sesame seeds in the recipe or add roasted Bengal gram powder/sattu/roasted besan instead
1 cup- roasted black sesame seeds
1/2 cup- roasted white sesame seeds
handful of pumpkin seeds
Handful of sunflower seeds
The choice is endless with this recipe. You can play with the ingredients and substitute the same with other nuts or seeds, whatever is available at hand.
3/4 -1 cup- jaggery powder or 4 pieces of gur (I had gur pieces)
4 tsp water
1 tbsp ghee
ajwain/carom seeds
fennel seeds
black pepper
pinch of black salt
ginger powder
vegan til ladoo


How to make Til Burfi: Instant Recipe for Beginners

Here's one til ladoo recipe that uses no ghee, requires no heating, and is quicker than any other ladoo recipe.

Take a 2/3-liter pressure cooker.
Drop the gur pieces or jaggery powder.
Add the water.
Throw in salt, black pepper, fennel seeds, carom seeds, and ginger powder
Cook for 4 whistles.
Open and mix in the remaining ingredients.
Keep stirring until a ball is formed in the center.
You may want to make til ladoo with it.
If you wish to go ahead with burfi, take a greased plate/aluminum foil.
Spread the mixture and press it with a heavy utensil.
Keep it pressed for half an hour.
Cut and enjoy gur til burfi: an instant recipe for beginners and fall in love with it.

The sugarless recipe is a must try for those who want to cut down on white sugar intake, as this one substitutes refined sugar with mineral-rich jaggery. However, indulgence in this Indian sweet does not bode well for your health, for too much of everything is bad. Sugarless does not make it a diabetic friendly recipe.

There is more to diabetes than merely sugarfree!! You may want to hop onto this diabetes-friendly page with information and diabetic recipes.


I have followed OPOS technique, which is patented by Rama Krishnan - the OPOS mentor. OPOS recipes are simple, hassle-free, quick, healthy, and oh so yummy. In order to start with OPOS, you need a 2 or 3-liter pressure cooker. Add 1/4cup of water to it and set on high heat. If your first whistle comes between 1 and 2 minutes, your pressure cooker is all set to join the OPOS bandwagon.



Black Ladoo
1/2 cup- black sesame seeds
1/2 cup- oats (ground)
1/2 cup- poha (rice flakes)
1/2 cup- almonds or nuts of your choice
1/2 cup- jaggery or more if you have a sweet tooth
1/4 cup- flax meal
2tbsp- water
1tbsp- roasted ragi powder/atta (optional)

Kid-Friendly Badam Oats Cookies: Sugarfree, Fiber Rich, Eggless

Recently, there is a Sunfeast advertisement on Moms Magic cookies. This has attracted my attention. So what happened next is history. As you already know me, the cookie big has bitten me badly, so I jumped into experimenting with badam cookies. I have never tasted these cookies from Sunfeast, as I do not buy outside biscuits these days. So the oats cookie recipe is the result of my own healthy baking experiment. Did the experiment disappoint?
Of course, not!

You have got to be a cookie lover to try out a new cookie every other day. My airfryer has made life easier for me, and I find it the best investment for my baking journey.

Ever since my airfryer homecoming, I have always chosen to go for airfryer cookies, and not touched my convection ever since. That's the beauty of airfryer baking.
