oats halwa recipe

This is a quick and delicious oats halwa is made from quick-cooking oats, mawa (evaporated solids), milk, sugar and ghee. To make the halwa fragrant, I have also added cardamom and nutmeg powder. Mawa (evaporated solids) gives a nice texture and taste to the halwa.

Mawa is often added in many Indian sweets like Coconut ladoo, Gulab jamun, rava ladoo. You can buy the khoya from outside or can also Make khoya at home. recipe made using khoya are usually quick and easy. So is this oats halwa which is tasty and at the same time healthy.

We have developed a taste and liking for oats. Now I prepare a lot of recipes from oats. Another sweet recipe you can make with oats is this Oats kheer.

You can serve oats halwa as breakfast or a dessert post meal. best part is you can serve this halwa warm or at room temperature. Either way it tastes good.

    1. condensed milk is less. so in this recipe it is 1/4 or 1/3 cup. ricotta cheese is same quantity as that of mawa.

    1. deepshikha, you can use unsweetened condensed milk. ricotta cheese also can be used as a substitute. hope this helps.
