Oats Badam Halwa

This recipe was the product of a kitchen disaster.I was trying to make Oats-badam laddu, a healthy snack for my toddler(who hates oats/cereal in the morning).As i was pouring milk into the oats mixture,i heard a scream..ooops..i poured the whole cup of milk into the mix....(scream: as usual my toddler wanted to change channels).Anyways back to the recipe,so the laddu became halwa which turned out to be a good one.so here is the Oats-badam halwa...


Oats - 1 cup
Badam - 20
Ghee - 1tspn
Sugar - 1 and 1/2 cup
Milk - 1 and 1/4 cup.(boiled)
Powdered Cardamom - 1/4tsp


Fry Oats and badam in 1 tsp of ghee.After it is cooled ,ground Oats,Badam and sugar into fine powder.Pour milk,cardamom and the grounded mix into a non stick pan and heat it.Keep stirring until it comes to halwa consistency.Garnish with more badam.

For laddu,
Mix ghee,cardamom and grounded powder and just enough milk to make laddu.
You can use Evaporated milk if you want.
