How to Make Dates Payasam

  • Wash Rice in two changes of Water.
  • In a non-stick, heavy bottomed deep vessel boil Rice in 1700 ml of Milk.
  • Reduce to medium flame and cook till it becomes soft and gooey (about 50 mins). Stir frequently to prevent from sticking.
  • Meanwhile heat 1 tbsp Ghee in a non-stick pan and stir the seedless Dates for 2 mins on medium flame.
  • Transfer this to a blender and make a smooth liquid. Pass through a fine sieve, to filter the Dates skin if any.
  • In the same pan heat the remaining 1 tbsp Ghee and stir Raisins for about 2 mins till they swell up.
  • To the cooked Rice add the Dates-Milk, Almond Powder, Sugar and Condensed Milk, mix well and on medium flame allow to cook for 5 mins.
  • Sprinkle the Cardamom Power and Raisins. Mix well.
  • Serve hot.
