Oats Kheer with Fresh Figs ~ Day 166

A simple and healthy oats kheer made with fresh figs straight from our backyard tree.  Figs are high in fiber and boost a good source of essential vitamins and minerals.  I've used condensed milk for sweetness, but you can also substitute brown sugar if you like.  This makes a delicious and wholesome dish that can be devoured any time of the day.

Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time 15 minutes
Serves: 2 to 3

  • Organic Old-fashioned rolled oats - 1 cup
  • Milk - 1/2 cup
  • Water - 1 cup
  • Sweetened Condensed milk - 1/4 cup
  • Fresh ripe figs - 3, finely chopped
  • Ghee / clarified butter - 1 tbsp + 1 tsp
  • Cashews - 4, broken
  • Raisins - 1 tbsp
  • Cardamom powder - 1/4 tsp
  • Freshly grated nutmeg - 1/4 tsp

  1. Place the oats in a saucepan and roast in 2 tsp ghee for 2 minutes over low heat.
  2. Add milk and water and cook until soft.  Add the condensed milk and chopped figs.  Stir well and cook for 5 minutes.  If the kheer becomes thick, thin it down with some milk or water.
  3. Heat 1 tbsp ghee in a small skillet.  Fry the cashews and raisins.  When the raisins turn plump, remove from the heat and pour it over the oats.  Mix well.
  4. Add the cardamom powder and freshly grated nutmeg.  Stir to combine.
  5. Serve warm.
