Recipe: Healthy version of creamy kheer

The Times of India

Indian spiced oatmeal


1/2 cup rolled oats or multigrain oats 1.5 cups water 3 tsp finely ground flax seed 2-3 tsp slivered almonds A pinch of saffron

1/8 tsp salt

1/8 tsp ground cardamom

A pinch of ground nutmeg

Stevia or Agave to taste

1/2 cup to 2/3 cup of 1% organic milk (the creamier you want the oatmeal, the more milk you should add)


Step 1: Cook the oats with the water in the microwave for 2 minutes. Stir, and cook again in the microwave for 1-2 minutes more until all the water is absorbed and the oats have a very creamy texture. Depending on your microwave, you might have to cook them for longer for them to become soft.

Step 2: Stir in the saffron, flax seed, and almonds. The heat of the oatmeal will help melt the saffron until it's fully combined.

Step 3: Add the rest of the spices (salt, cardamom, nutmeg, stevia) and stir to combine.

Step 4: Stir in the milk until the oatmeal is the consistency you like.

Step 5: Heat the oatmeal again in the microwave for 1-2 minutes until it is hot and ready to eat.
