How to make Banana payasam - payasam recipes

          It feels so good to be back to blogging after almost a week. I had taken a break with the intention of relaxing and spending quality time with my family. But things do not always turn up as expected. It was not a good time for us last week. I know it could have been worse and I am so much thankful to God that things are back to normal again.
          When I began checking my mails this weekend, It was a sweet and a  pleasant surprise for me to see Usha's(of veg inspirations) mail stating that I was the winner of her Healthy salad event which she had hosted some time ago. I felt so happy and I believe that it was some kind of reward for me after undergoing a bad phase. Thanks a million Usha.
         And now talking about today's recipe which is the next sweet thing, the recipe was given to me by my hubby from a  tamil recipe book. As he has a sweet tooth, he wanted me to make this sometime. Banana payasam was something new and interesting for me. It tasted just divine.It was all over in no time. Lucky, I could get to eat the last cup before taking the photo. This could be made as a prasadam during Indian festivals.
banana dates payasam
Ingredients-
Banana- 2 large (ripe but firm and sweet ones)
Dates- 1/2 cup(seedless)
Cashews- 8 to 10

Grated coconut- 1/4 cup
Ghee- 1tbsp

Method-
 Chop the bananas and dates to tiny pieces. Heat ghee in a pan. Add the chopped bananas and dates and fry them till the bananas turn a golden brown. Remove and keep them aside. Also fry the cashews in ghee til they turn golden brown.
       Now add approximately half a glass of water along with the jaggery in a pan. Allow the jaggery to dissolve and then boil. Keep stirring till you get a one string consistency. Now add the ghee roasted bananas, dates and cashews along with the grated coconut. Stir till everything mixes well. Add the coconut milk and boil for five minutes.
    Serve warm or chilled.
