Presenting the simple, nutritious and yummy Dates Egg Pudding. Quick to make and has high nutrition from the Dates, Milk and Egg. This yummilicious pudding/dessert makes a great filling and nutritious way to break the fast after a long fasting day during this summer. For starting for iftar, dates are high in sugar, protein and also contain potassium, magnesium, iron, fiber, fat and carbohydrates. Dates are easily digested, making them a quick source of energy and nutrients. And, eating dates combined with milk and honey after a long day of fasting can help a body’s blood glucose levels quickly return to normal.
I am submitting this post as part of Challenge #12 by the Muslim Food Bloggers which is the revision of the wonderful 11 months challenges using different themes and i chose the theme cooking with Dates and very glad to be a part of this wonderful challenge recap and looking forward to more.
- 1/2 litre milk
- 6 eggs
- 6 full tbsp sugar
- 10 Pitted Dates
- 1 tsp vanilla essence
Method:• In a dish, prepare the egg mixture, lightly whisk egg, milk, sugar and vanilla essence, till well blended (don’t over whisk)
Blend the Dates along with little milk into a smooth texture and add to the above egg mixture. You can also caramelize the bottom of the pan before pouring the mixture.
• Cover the dish with aluminium foil before steaming (this is to avoid the water from the steam to drip on the egg pudding) and steam for 20 minutes. Slice the pudding and enjoy it while cold or warm as per your preference.
