Instant Dates Payasam

BM #72 Week 3 Day 1 - 

For this week I have opted to present some milk based desserts. Typically milk based desserts would be kheer/payasam of some kind. But Let me see what else I can come up with this week.

On a weekend morning, just before we were sitting down for lunch, we felt we should have something for a dessert as well. On such occasions, I usually rely on Semiya Payasam. But unfortunately on that particular day, I couldn't locate the new pack of roasted vermicelli which I had got from the store the previous day. 

So I had to improvise and make a payasam in under 5 minutes. I served it as part of this special thali.

Ingredients - 

Dates 5-6 pitted
Cooked Rice 2 Tbsp
Almonds 5-6
Milk 1 1/2 cups
Sugar or any other sweeteneer of your choice 1 tsp (Optional)
Cardamam powder a pinch
Roasted Cashews for garnish

Instant Dates Payasam

Method Of Preparation -

Blend the almonds, dates and cooked rice with 1 cup of milk into a fine paste.

Pour the mixture in a microwave safe bowl. Add the remaining milk and let it come to a boil. [About 2 1/2 minutes]

Sprinkle the cardamom powder, add sweetener now if using. Mix well and microwave it for another 30 seconds until it bubbles up.

Remove, garnish and serve warm.
