I am always hungry and/or looking for good ideas of food. And this dates payasa caught my eyes as I flipped open the old cook book randomly. As I went through the ingredients list, it seemed my pantry has it all. If you think Dates are some unusual things of your cooking life, then you may make a trip to grocery. It wasn’t the case with me because I do keep a big bag full of dates with me and use it in everyday cooking. You know how? In my most food preparation wherever jaggery is essential like in rasam or curry, I try to replace it with dates. And I have been doing this since many years, trust me there is no taste difference at all.
Dates are all natural, nature provided sweeteners and they are best to our health. Like the processed sweeteners, these pretty Dates do no harm to our body. So on a similar note, lets enjoy this dates payasa and it’s goodness while welcoming NEW YEAR. What say?
