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......

Simple Upma

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
As my mother was working, I entered the kitchen at the age of 7 only. I think, first I learnt to make tea. But I do not remember my first food in meals or main course. Simple Upma was my first learnt food, which I used to prepare all by my self, and I was just 9 years old.
When I learnt to prepare it, I used to wait for someone to come home, so that I will make upma and give them and get appreciation.. Once in a week, my grand father(my mother's father) used to come to meet us.
You guessed it right!!!  He was my target always. 
Here is the recipe,
Semolina(Rava) - 1 cup
(Roast the rava with little ghee or oil till you get aroma, keep it aside)
Onion - 1 medium, chopped
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Urad dal - 1 tsp
Green chilly - 2 chopped length wise
Salt to taste
Sugar -1 tsp
Ghee or Oil  - 2 tbsp
(When I learnt making Upma, I used to make only in ghee )
Boiling Water - 2 cups (1:2 ratio)
Heat ghee or oil in kadai. Add mustard seeds. When splutter, add urad dal and wait till dal turns little brown and nice aroma comes. Immediately add green chilly, onion. Saute it. Wait till onion turns into golder color. Now add water, salt and sugar. Add roasted rava and mix it properly. Keep it on low flame till the rava is cooked. Adjust the seasoning. 
Serve with ghee on top!!!

I know this is very simple recipe, but I always feel happy when I think about my first cooked food!!!!, but same time, I feel sad that why I entered the kitchen at so early age!!!!

Keep smiling,
