HOW TO MAKE OATS KHEER OR PAYASAM WITH JAGGERY RECIPE Heat a pan and roast oats on a medium flame for 5-6 minutes.
Add the milk and thin coconut milk to the roasted oats. Cook on a medium flame till the oats are cooked and reaches a thick consistency.
Once the oats are cooked, add powdered jaggery and mix well. Cook on a low flame for another 7-8 minutes till the jaggery is melted and is fully blended with the oats.
Once the kheer thickens, add thick coconut milk and combine together. Add cardamom powder. Stir gently for a minute and switch off the flame
