Dates and Almond payasam|5 Ingredients or less

Had lot of dates at home and was wondering what can i do with that, and then came up with Payasam. Today is last day for the Blogging Marathon #8 hosted by Srivalli

Ingredients:
5-6 pitted dates
2 table spoon of Jaggery
1/2 cup Coconut milk
3-4 almonds
1/2 tsp cardamon powder
1/2 cup milk (optional)

Method:
Boil the pitted dates in little water in either Microwave for 2 minutes or in stove till it becomes soft.LinkGrind the pitted dates, almond into a coarse paste.
In a vessel heat the Jaggery, coconut milk, milk and cardamon powder and allow it to boil for 3 minutes.
Add the dates paste and allow it boil for 5 minutes
Paysam is ready.

Note:
Milk is optional.
Add milk if the coconut milk is very thick. Else we need not add milk.
I used Coconut milk tin available in stores. hence i had to use milk to make it liquid.
