Hope all enjoyed a very joyous, fun filled and yummy onam...Do check out my Dates Delight in which I have given more info about the use of Dates..



1. Dates - 20 (pitted & chopped)
2. Almond Paste - 1 tbsp (soak 3-4 almonds in water,peel the skin & grind to smooth paste with little water)
3. Almonds - 10 (chopped)
4. Rava /Semolina /Sooji - 1 tbsp
5. Jaggery - 3-4 tbsp (grated)[according to sweetness of dates]
6. Milk/Coconut milk - 4 cups
7. Cardamom powder - 2 tsp
8. Water - 1 cup
9. Ghee - 1 tbsp (unmelted)
10. Cashew nuts - 10-12 (halved)

11. Condensed milk - 1 -2 tbsp (optional)
12. Salt -  a pinch


~ Heat ghee in a non-stick cookware.
~Saute nuts in it till light golden brown & remove it from ghee & keep it aside.
~Add the chopped dates to the ghee & saute for 1 min.
~Pour the water & cook the dates till mushy (close the lid & cook. Stir occasionally)[make sure the water does not dry up]

~Press the dates with your long spoon to make them mushy.
~Now add 2 cups of milk, almond paste, rava, jaggery  & let it boil.
~Now reduce the flame & add the rest of the milk & allow it to boil again.
~Check the sweetness & adjust with jaggery/condensed milk & add salt.
~After it has boiled, reduce the flame & cook for 2 mts & add your sauteed nuts to it & mix well...your lovely payasam is ready.
~As almond paste & rava is added the payasam will become thicker by time so don't cook for long.
~Can add 2 or 3 chopped dates also at the end.
