Oats and Rawa payasam(sheer Khurma style)

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
I always wait for every Thursday! Two reasons for that. One is its a day I do special prayers to Shirdi Saibaba and this is the day I make sweet to offer. Each week, I try to make new desserts. And today was the day for making something simple but delicious. 
Here is a simple sweet but a healthy one.

Fine Semolina or rawa - 4 tbsp
Oats (regular) - 4 tbsp
Sugar - 1/2 cup or little more according to your taste.
Ghee - 1tsp
nuts - 2 tbsp(chopped cashew, almonds, raisins, ker beeja) 
Grated dry coconut - 2 tbsp
Kesar or Saffron strands - 3 to 4
Cardamom powder - 1/4 tsp
Water - 1 cup
Milk 2 cups
Add 1 tbsp ghee to the thick bottomed kadai and make it warm. Add the rawa and fry for half a minute. Add the rolled oats and fry another half a minute.
Remove and keep it aside.
Mix the water and milk and keep it to boil.
Once it boils, add fried rawa and oats. Cook for a minute, add sugar and all the other ingredients except saffron strands.
Soak the saffron strands in very little milk.
Keep on stirring and boil for 5 minutes. Add the saffron strands. Boil for a minute.
Remove and serve hottttttttttt......
