Oats Halwa - Dessert in a jiffy

I am not joking.This dessert can be prepared under 10 minutes....Before I go on to the actual recipe,let me tell you what made me prepare this one...MEC-Halwa is being hosted at Kamalika's Blog.[You may be knowing that MEC is the brain child of Srivalli @ Cooking 4 all seasons] . The deadline drawing near, I had to come up with some halwa in the microwave and today I remembered bookmarking oats halwa from Ramya's Blog .So I set to prepare it and it took me less than 10 minutes from start to finish.It is a very simple recipe and u can stir it up when u have unexpected guests and need to complete the meal with a dessert.Now to the recipe..

You need:

Oats-3/4 cup
Sugar-1/4 cup
Water-1 cup
Almonds-to garnish[I used 5]
Ghee-1 teaspoon

  1. Melt ghee in a microwave safe bowl and put in the chopped almonds and microwave on high for 2 minutes or till light brown.Keep aside.
  2. Dissolve sugar in hot water and keep aside.
  3. Powder oats.You will have around 1 cup of powder now.
  4. Roast it in a microwave safe bowl on high for 2 minutes.
  5. Mix the roasted oats powder and sugar syrup.See that u don't get any lumps.
  6. Put it back into the microwave and microwave on high for 3 minutes [or till u get the halwa consistency.I microwaved it for exactly 3 minutes].Stir at the end of every minute.
  7. Put in the almonds along with the ghee at the end of the second minute.
  8. Yummy yum oats halwa is ready....The cup I used is the one which comes with the rice cooker and the quantity of halwa prepared is sufficient for one person.Add more sugar if you want a sweeter halwa.
