Oats ar Chana diye Gurer Payesh (Oats and Paneer Payesh with Date Jaggary)...

Oats ar Chana diye Gurer Payesh (Oats and Paneer Payesh with Date Jaggary)...
This is a Bengali sweet dish made out of the Date Jaggary, Milk and Paneer. Here I have given it a twist by adding in Oats. It has a rich and creamy texture and delicious in taste. 
Date Jaggery are usually found in the shops during winter. But I always keep a stock of it in the fridge to be used through out the year.. In case date jaggery is not available then you can also use Sugar... 

Ingredients

2 1/2 cups of Milk

4 tbsp Oats roasted 

1/2 cup Paneer crumble

1/2 cup Date Jaggary grated

Pinch of Cardamom

Pinch of Salt

Few Broken Cashewnuts

Few Raisins

1 Bay Leaf

Method

Take Milk in a pot and add the bay leaf. Keep it on low flame and let it simmer till the quantity reduces to half. Add the paneer, oats, salt, cardomom powder, raisins and cashewnut. Stir it and cook for 5 minutes more on low flame. Add the jaggery and stir it till the jaggery dissolves and simmer it for 10 minutes. Switch off the flame. Garnish it with some more cashewnuts and raisins. Serve it hot or cold.
