Oats Halwa

Oats Halwa
In continuation with my "Festive cooking on busy days" here comes my next recipe "Oats Halwa". In any halwa sugar and ghee cannot be avoided. I have tried to reduce both of them in this recipe. Oats Halwa is a combination of Homemade oats milk, sugar, cardamom, ghee and nuts which is kept in microwave for 6 minutes and cooked like a halwa consistency.

Oats Halwa is a quick microwave based halwa which can be prepared in 5 mins if the oats milk is readily available. If it is not available you are going just spend another 5 more minutes to prepare the oats milk. Refer to my oats milk recipe for the same.
Sugar can be completely replaced with stevia if you wish to do so. I would suggest not to use a plastic based microwave container for this recipe as we are frying the nuts in microwave itself. I have seen that the plastic getting spoiled if we fry the nuts or do tadka with them. Its best to use a glass container which is microwave safe. However, if you do not have a glass container ,fry the nuts separately and add it to the oat milk mix.
