DATES AND PRUNES FROZEN PAYASAM



                   It was definitely 'dessert time' at home after one looong healthy week! Yes.. we are trying to go healthy 'again'!!!!...Well....its totally a different story if you ask 'for how long'.....BUT...BUT.....BUT.....atleast we started. right?? :D
                    So I decided to make this payasam with the goodness of dates, prunes and sago to overcome the guilt!...lol. Tasted really good. The sad part is that by the time I served and clicked pictures it had already started melting.
                    One more reason for celebration is that my facebook page has reached 100 likes! ...*blush*     Thanks nandhitha for the 100th like ;) and thanks to all my blog followers as well...:)
