Dates Poha Kheer


2 tablespoons thin poha/beaten rice

1-2 seedless dates (If you do not have seedless dates, then use a knife to remove the seed from the dates)

1/2 cup baby’s milk

Water as needed


Wash the poha in drinking water nicely and then keep aside. Drain all the water as the residual water will be enough to soak the thin poha enough.
Chop the dates into very fine pieces.
Heat a pan and add half cup water into the pan.
When the water in a little hot, add the finely chopped dates to water.
Keep stirring in between and let the dates cook and disintegrate completely. This will take 3-4 minutes.
When dates are cooked, add soaked poha and mix well.
Now add baby’s milk as needed and turn off the heat.
Mix every thing well and serve.
The dates give a lovely subtle sweetness to this kheer and make it even more nutritious.

This recipe can be made with normal and traditional poha varieties like Mappilai samba, karuppu kavuni, and other millet pohas/aval.
