Week 1 Day 3 of BM #60 -
I came across this recipe when I was looking for some unique and healthy desserts from Punjab. I love the fact that this kheer is predominantly made out of Dates and Jaggery and also the freshly ground kala chana lends a unique flavor.

Kala Chana / Nalla Senagalu 1/4 cup
Dates (Fresh and deseeded) 6 Big ones
Jaggery, powdered 2 Tbsp (or as per taste)
Butter 1 tsp
Milk 3 cups
Cardamom Powder 1/2 tsp
Almonds, Cashews chopped and fried
Method Of Preparation -
Dry roast the Kala Chana for a couple minutes on medium heat. Let it cool.
Grind it into as fine as possible. I like a slightly coarse texture.
Grind the dates, jaggery and 1 cup of milk into a fine paste and set aside.
In a heated sauce pan, add butter and roast the Kala Chana Powder for a few seconds.
Add 1 1/2 cup of milk and keep stirring while it cooks.
Pour the dates mixture and let it cook for a few minutes.
Add the chopped nuts and cardamom powder. Adjust the consistency as needed.
Remove from heat and serve it warm of cold for a delightful dessert!
