Dates payasam

Eenthapazha payasam
This is a new variety of payasam here . Amazing taste of dates plus full of nutrition. I am already thinking of making this as a part of my next onam sadya.

Things Needed:
Dates -250 gm
Jaggery - 100 gm(not so much while dates are already sweet)
Coconut milk -if thin 1 can or else 1 cup from 1/2 coconut
( not too much of water content while it will be tough to evaporate all later)
Ghee - 3 tbsp
Cashew nuts - a handful
cardamom - 4 or 5 crushed

Preparation Method:
Well cook dates adding enough water to cover it.
Set aside to cooldown. Meantime heat some water, melt jaggery in it. Fry nuts also in 2 tbsp ghee.
Now grind the dates into a coarse paste. Pour this back to the pan .
Add melted Jaggery, coconut milk, 1 spoon Ghee & boil until thick.
Finally add cardamom & nuts.
