Dates Payasam - Wish you all a very Happy Onam

I wish you all a very joyous, fun filled and yummy onam.
To celebrate this wonderful harvest festival of Kerala, i am here today with a payasam recipe. A dates payasam, which is the quickest and simplest payasam that i have ever seen. This is my Aunts recipe and I made it yesterday for our Onam sadhya at my place, we all loved it . Hope you all will enjoy it too.

Ingredients:-
Dates(eenthapazham) seedless - 1 cup
Boiled milk - 2 cup
Condensed milk - 2 tsp
Cashew nuts - 1/4 cup
Raisins - 2 tsp
Ghee/butter - 3 tsp
Crushed cardamom/cardamom powder - 1/2 tsp
Water - 1.5 - 2.5  cup

Method
Chop the seedless dates into small pieces.If you are using dates with seeds, remove the seeds and chop it.
Cook it by adding 1.5 cup water for 10 minutes, till it is mushy and the gravy/sauce is thick. Add more water if you think its is not cooked or if you want a bit more sauce.
Add boiled milk to this and simmer for another 5-7 minutes, stirring continously and add condensed milk  and mix it well. Add crushed cardamom and let it stand for another 2 minutes .
Heat butter or ghee in a pan and fry cashew nuts and raisins till golden brown. Pour this over prepared payasam and serve ..


Cheers!!
Sarah

Sarah Naveen said...

Rakhi...Glad to know u liked it :-)..I should try with cutsard powder next time...thats sounds great ..

Anonymous said...

Hi Sarah... Thanks for sharing this recipe. I have a question for you...The boiled milk curdled after adding it to the dates sauce. what could be the reason?

Shyama Sreedharan said...

Your blog is a life saver Sara, made many onam dishes today using your simple recipes for my first ever onam sadya..everyone loved it. This dates payasa, was a super duper hit! Thanks and keep posting new recipes.

Rose Jose said...

Hi..i tried out this recipe..but the boiled milk curdled after adding it to the dates sauce..wats the reason??

Sarah Naveen said...

Rose , I honestly do not know the reason ...but it can happen when you add the milk , Imdtly after boiling it ...or if u r cooking the dates sauce in a pan in which u have cooked some tangy curries ! Boiled milk just mean " thelapicha pal" not like boiling hot ....may b I shud clarify that in the recipe!

Rose Jose said...

Hi Sarah...I added boiling hot milk into the dates sauce.That might have been the reason i suppose.anyways,im gonna give another try.and let u know if it has turned good..once again thanks for all your recipes you post and awesome clicks..
