4 minutes Oats Payasam

I wish all of you a very Happy Vishu. Vishu is celebrated by the Keralites and it is regarded as the Malayalam New year day. Even though we are in US, we celebrate this occasion without fail. I wanted to prepare something special and different today. We frequently eat oatmeal. So I had an idea in my mind and thought of making a quick Oats payasam.It was a trial and it came out perfect.

This payasam is so easy that it takes less than 5 minutes for preparing in the microwave...isnt it super quick? Ofcourse yummy too.I did this similar to how I made Cracked wheat payasam, main difference is I made the oats payasam in microwave. Hope you also enjoy this special payasam. It makes a quick dessert for special occasions.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup Oats (I used Quaker oats, old fashioned)
1/2 cup Jaggery powdered
1 cup Water
1/4 cup Coconut milk
1/4 tsp Cardamom powder
1 tbsp chopped Dates
Ghee

Put the oats in a microwave safe bowl. Add a little ghee, less than a tsp to this and mix well.Microwave on High for about 1.5  minutes for slightly roasting the oats.Stir it in between, after 45 seconds or so.You will get a good aroma once done.

Now add water to the oats and again microwave for about 1.5 minutes. The oats will be cooked now.Add jaggery to the hot cooked oats and mix well. The jaggery will slowly melt.Now add the coconut milk. I added a little less than 1/4 th cup and found that the consistency was fine.Put the cardamom powder and mix well. Again microwave for about 30 seconds to 1 minute.For a difference, I garnished with chopped dates.(You can garnish with cashews and raisins.)

Serves 2-3
