Oat Mango Kheer (Pudding)

mango_oats_kheer 013

Eating Oatmeal for breakfast is our everyday ritual including the weekends. On week days it is more of a rush as everybody leaves to go to work and we do not sit and enjoy the taste. On the weekends we have regular cooked oatmeal along with Orange Juice. We add nuts, dry fruits, cinnamon and some brown sugar to our regular oatmeal, and so the combination is good way to kick start the day.


The benefit of eating oatmeal is immense and following are some of its uses:


·         Help dieters’ cholesterol.

·         Improve LDL cholesterol profile.

·         Curb inflammation. Lab tests show that antioxidants in oats have anti-inflammatory properties.

·         Reap whole-grain perks against high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, and weight gain. (Source)



Dear Husband (DH) is very fond of oatmeal and enjoys it with good amount of dry fruits and nuts. In fact, it was his idea of making this Mango Kheer.

I made this by first cooking the oats, then added milk, cardamom and then finally the store bought ready mango pulp. Mango, cardamom along with milk makes a beautiful combination and oatmeal only adds a good texture. While eating this I realized that we could add Sago to this and make it softer and thicker.

  • 1 cup of  quick cooking oats
  • 1 cup Mango pulp ( I used ready made Kesar Mango pulp for this/ even fresh mango pulp should be fine)
  •  1/2 cup Sugar (increase per taste)
  • 2 cups water
  •  2 cups milk ( I used 1% milk)
  • ½ tsp ground cardamom(elaichi)
  • 1/4 cup sabudana/ Sago(optional, I did not use this)
  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts, pista, raisins(optional)

  • If using Sabudana/Sago then soak it in water for about 1-2 hours.
  • Boil the water in a heavy bottom pan. Add the oats and allow to cook.
  • Next add the milk, sugar and mix well. The milk or the water quantity can be changed based on the taste. We like this slightly thick.
  • Add the Sago and then boil again. When cooked completely add the cardamom powder at the end.
  • Allow to cool, then add the mango pulp. Mix well and refrigerate. Add the nuts, raisins before serving.

    Thanks Superchef. It is one of my marriage saree and I love the yellow color of it.

    Thanks Pooja. Yellow and red are my favorite colors and this oatmeal pudding imparted a beautiful yellow hue.

    Thanks Madhu. I need to check your post, I already like the idea of using oatmeal as Payasa. Healthy and delicious in one go.

    Thanks Soma. I use my sarees as background, some of them are my wedding sarees. The sad thing is that being in the US, I hardly wear any sarees.They are lying in the suitcase, instead I can make use of it this way :-). You need to eat some breakfast girl 🙂

    Thanks Suparna. You are my type of girl, eating breakfast and stuff. Frankly I have not eaten or tasted phirni. I need to find more about it. I have seen the recipe in other blogs though. Got to try it, thanks for the idea girl.

  8. Madhumathi says:

    Mangoes are in season..This pudding is just perfect..I love mangoes..I have to try both your mango pudding and mango cake very soon..
    The saree looks so b’ful 🙂

  9. RedChillies says:

    Thanks Lavanya. So glad you liked it.

    Thanks Ashwini. We love oatmeal at home for Breakfast. Maybe you can try this with little sago to get that familiar taste. Hope you get to try this.

    Thanks A&N. Terrific, so glad that the breakfast dilemma is solved. And as a bonus it is healthy too.

    Thanks Sushma. Adding mango pulp makes a whole lot of difference. The taste of oatmeal is hidden too, you can eat it more like a payasa.

    Thanks Cham. Adding mango pulp to the oatmeal lended a baeutiful color to it. Natural and healthy.

  10. Madhuram says:

    That’s a wonderful combination RC. My husband is also an oatmeal fan. He usually has it for breakfast with salt, hing, pepper powder and buttermilk. I have it for lunch, mixing rasam/sambar with cooked oatmeal. It’s very good when eaten hot. You don’t feel deprived of rice and get some fiber too.

    It took such a long time for your blog to load, I don’t if it’s your server or my computer.

  11. RedChillies says:

    Thanks Mahimaa. Mango pretty much enhances the taste of everything right? Even adds a good color.

    Thanks Uma. I am so glad that this is a healthy recipe.

    Thanks Deesha. It is one of my old wedding sarees. I am happy that it is coming of some use 🙂

    Thanks Parita. So glad you liked it.

    Thanks Asha. Mango adds good flavor and that good feeling to everything, not to mention the good color.

    Thanks HC. Earlier I used to hate oats too, but after eating it for a while, I got used to the taste and now I love it. MAke it more like a thin payasam and then you might like it.

  12. RedChillies says:

    Thanks ISG. It was DH’s idea. He is very fond of oats and mango and I think this is what makes it appealing. Hope you like it.

    Thanks Vaishali. I am very fond of cardamom and love it in all desserts. I also love mangoes and I think it makes a great combination.

    Thanks Priya. Great minds think alike 🙂 I will check your post and I like the idea of making this in a microwave.

    Thanks so much Trupti. You are a sweetheart for thinking of me. I will grab it from your blog 🙂

    Thanks Lisa. Coming from you it means a lot to me, I am so glad you liked it.

    Thanks Bharti. I love the idea of making sheera out of this oatmeal. That is very clever indeed.

  13. Miri says:

    I love mango in any form, but i think will draw the line at adding oats into it 😉

    Seriously though, for those who like oats, seems like a very delcious way of having a healthy meal!

  14. Upsi says:

    I just finished my breakfast and feels very stuffed.
    But the pictures you have here, RC — makes me want to grab a bowl of that and gulp it!
    I’ve decided (long back) not to visit you here bfore my meal time. But even when I drop by, with a full stomach, this is what I end up feeling.

  15. RedChillies says:

    Thanks Madhumathi. We love fresh mangoes, the juicy succulent ones… yumm. The fresh ones will surely add good taste to this.

    Thanks Jenn. So glad you liked this variation. I hope everything goes well with your cholesterol soon. Good luck girl.

    Thanks Madhuram. The way you describe your DH he does have very healthy habits. I never thought of eating this with rasam or with buttermilk. Very creative and healthy. I am a die-hard fan of rice and need to cut it down.
    Ouch! wonder what has happened to my site. Thanks for letting me know, I will keep an eye on it.

    Thanks Miri. I used to be that way, but now I am a fan of oats. I add lots of liquit to it when I make it and that way the oats are not prominent. That said I cannot stand mushroom and tofu :-(. That is where I draw my lines 🙂

    Thanks Upsi. You know how to make a girl feel good 🙂 Quite frankly if I had the frame and figure like you I would be eating all day 🙂 😉

  16. Athika says:
