Oats & Pistachio Kalakand

It has been a quite long i have prepared sweets with oats...here comes my all time favourite kalakand with oats and pistachio nuts...these both ingredients works out wonder with ricotta cheese and they turned this kalakand really very delicious, tasty and quick sweet to enjoy, eventhough i have used pistachios in this kalakand, personally i felt adding rolled oats turned this kalakand healthy and guilt free..Also pistachio nuts have enough healthy stuffs in it and with rolled oats this kalakand tastes awesome and nutty...Another sweets with oats to enjoy, a real feast for sweet lovers to enjoy..I prepared this delicious oats & pistachios kalakand specially this weekend as we went to my SiL's place, everyone at her home enjoyed having this kalakand and i got a special thanks for bringing her these delicious and healthy oats & pistachios kalakand...Sending to Umm's Iftar Moments..




1cup Ricotta cheese(full fat)
1/3cup Pistachio Powder
1/4cup Rolled oats
1cup Sugar
2cups Milk Powder(low fat)
Few pistachio pieces
1tbsp Butter+1tsp butter

Take a microwave bowl, add the ricotta cheese, sugar, milk powder,pistachio powder n butter n stir them continously until the cheese gets well mixed, this may looks as creamy paste..keep the microwave in high temperature for 5 minutes n cook this milk mixture, they may doubled their volume, stir them once..meanwhile in a another microwave bowl add a tsp of butter and rolled oats, cook everything for 5minutes in high(stir in between)...add the cooked oats to the cheese mixture,cook again in high temperature for 15 minutes in microwave oven..

Keep an eye while doing this, u may see the milk mixture might have turned slightly brownish colour at the edges..now transfer to a flat dish r plate, sprinkle the pistachios pieces on the top as u desire..keep aside n let them cool..once they r cooled cut them any shape as u wish..

Dear Priya, that's indeed modest of you. I have indeed no idea of how to go about a cookbook but I think I know whom you can ask...one is surely Srivalli and the other is Suchitra from easycrafts.
Trust me my friend you can make an excellent book...why don't u first start with an ebook?
