Dates Payasam Recipe

There are days when I buy things and totally forget about it.....Last weekend when I saw a dates pack which was almost a month old I wanted to use it up immediately. As everyone at home loves desserts, I decided to make a quick dessert.....and it was dates payasam(dates kheer) for after meal dessert.Dates Kheer is a very healthy no sugar guiltfree dessert that you can make it in minutes...its so quick with minimal ingredients that is easily available in your kitchen. I didnt follow any particular recipe for making this kheer, just made my own adjustments and the kheer came out delicious that you can relish every spoon!

My Notes:

  • I wanted to make it sugar free so didnt add sugar and we didnt miss it at all.
  • You can even add a pinch of nutmeg powder for extra flavour.
  • I just grinded dates to a coarse paste, its purely your preference for eating.
  • You can skip coocnut milk and add condensed milk for a rich kheer.
  • You can even add chopped banana for a change.
