  1. I tried this for BHW and it came out great. This is the first time I am making it at home :)I also tried making the Dates Payasam, but unfortunately the milk split as I was making it :(. Loved this one though!

  2. Tasted pretty good. I've been experimenting with Indian sweets since my husband is Bangladeshi and I'm American. I substituted pecans for cashews. Love the site.
