Do we need any special occasion to enjoy a bowl of sweet or any dessert??Yes..Of course!! But not only a  reason,a good mood also works out.Almost the whole february,I totally avoided all the calorie foods,including rice and every day spent some time for physical exercises.With all my hard work lost 2 kgs in just 10 days,but I was like in hell,I mean no cooking,no eating,no food,nothing...


Oops.that was hectic time which I faced and understood very well that controlling mind is quite difficult...Though don`t have any certain reason,I have tried plenty of recipes in march and most of the recipes are very easy,useful to cook in day to day life and of course healthy too.In march I was concentrated only on south indian vegetarian recipes i.,e out telugu cuisine..Like curries,fries,gravies and kheer recipes mostly..So,this is also one of the kheer which I tried one fine day afternoon after preparing the lunch..It`s an unexpected combination which I cooked according to my  mind orders.Yup..Do you people observed this?? Cooking should be done with heart which results into a great taste,But when you are trying to create a very new recipe,must listen mind which gives smart ideas..:) O.k!! In this recipe,first I thought to make some simple poha kheer,but mind told to add oats and in the ending heart forced to click to share it in the blog.That`s quite sweet long story.:)

MAHAS NOTES

You can use whole milk which gives very rich taste..

Replace oats or poha with semiya or sago pearls for a change.

You can use white sugar and skip jaggery.Use saffron strands if you have.

Nuts and ghee is your choice.If too health conscious use just 1 tsp ghee.

Use only 3/4 cup of jaggery or sugar if you want little bit less sweet.
