Dates phirni recipe, rich and creamy dessert with no added sugar. Dates phirni recipe with full video and step by step pictorial instructions.

Phirni is a North Indian dessert, made using rice milk and sugar as a main ingredient. I have posted Mango phirni and plain phirni recipe in Jeyashris kitchen. I recently did a cookery demo for London Sath sangam. It was a super hit show. All the participants enjoyed the recipes. I made this no sugar added Dates phirni, pori vadai, fruit sundal and a rasam recipe.

As it is Navaratri season, I want to post this Dates phirni recipe. We are not adding sugar or jaggery in this recipe. The sweetness of the dates is just enough. I tried to replace quinoa with rice but the taste was not nice.

I have posted many dessert and sweets recipe in Jeyashris kitchen for Navatri.
