Oats - Sesame Burfy /Energy Bar

Oats Sesame burfi is specially prepared for Usha Suresh's home, one of our best family friend . Suresh -Usha Cukkemane had arranged a gathering to celebrate their daughter - Son in law and their sweet cute little daughter's short stay in India. We are known to each other for more than 30 years and we all enjoyed our stay together in Dubai and continued our togetherness after our resettled too.

The gathering was in January. January 14 was Sankranthi and I had prepared Ellu -Bella for my tuition kids to mark Sankranthi. Sesame, groundnuts are mixed together with dry coconut pieces and little chenna to be added to this Sankranthi special "Ellu - Bella".
There is a saying that Ellu bella tindu olle maatadu, means eat sesame and jaggery and always be good and speak good.

Now coming back to the recipe, Just thought of using the remaining ellu-bella to be used for Burfy/Energy bar. It can be called as " Energy bar " because it has good amount of carbohydrates (nuts- ground nuts, sesame and chenna), iron content in jaggery. Added some Coconut gratings and Oats to increase the quantity and taste of the sweet.

Let us see the recipe Now.

Things needed :

Ground Nuts : 1 small cup (4 to 5 Tablespoons)
Roasted Chenna (Hurikadale/Pottu Kadale) : 1 Small Cup ( 3 to 4 Tablespoons)
Oats :  3 Cups (250 Gr)
Poppy Seeds : 1 Tablespoon
Sesame seeds : 2 to 3 Tablespoons
Coconut : 1 Cup
Jaggery : 1 Cup (Grated or powdered)
Cardamom : 5 to 6 Pods
Method :
1. Dry roast Oats till the raw smell disappear. Dry grind it with roasted poppy seeds and cardamom.
2. Powder Jaggery and keep it aside. Dry grind sesame seeds and keep it aside. (Sesame is already roasted).

3. Dry grind roasted groundnuts. (Powder consistency). Dry grind coconut. (Copra/Kobbari).

4. Now keep a pan on the fire and and put jaggery. Put 1/3 cup of water. Let jaggery melt.
5. Jaggery starts to melt and bubbles up. Stir in between and stir till one string consistency.

6. Add powdered Oats and mix it nicely. Add roasted chenna and mix it well.

7. Stir the content slowly for one or two minutes. It starts leaving the edge and turns as round ball.

8. Apply ghee on a tray'plate and put the ready burfy mixture to the tray.

11. Spread it around. and flattened with the help of spatula. Let it cool.
10 Cut it as small pieces. (According to your wish). Let it completely cool.

11. Put it in a airtight glass bottle/box.
12. Serve and have whenever you want. I have packed this for my friends.

Note :

If You are using Ellu -Bella Mixture ..pick all the groundnuts and dry grind it as powder and then use the powdered. Put the powdered groundnuts on the top of burfy (Just after flattened) and a press a bit. So that it helps the powder to remain firmly on the top. The content should be hot enough to hold the powder. Use of more/less ghee is optional.
Time : 20 Minutes
25 to 30 pieces can be made. (According to the size).
