    Notes

    For vegan version substitute dairy milk with almond milk, coconut milk or any plant based milk.
    Use as much ripe persimmons as possible to make puree. Persimmons are ripe when they are extremely soft to touch. Fully ripe fruit imparts maximum flavours, sweetness to the dish.
    Persimmons are natural sweetener in this recipe, you may add honey, coconut sugar or any sweetener if you prefer more sweetness.
    In case persimmons are not fully ripe and if you feel it is difficult to blend then add little milk as and when it is required while blending.
    Cooking time may vary depending on type of stove top you use.
    Garnish is totally optional.
