Tomato Dates Sweet / Tomato Dates Jam

Generally we used to make tomato sweet for briyani , I tried  adding dates with tomatoes  and this came out really awesome.
ripened tomatoes - 600 gm
dates - 200 gm
sugar - 400 gm
ghee - 50 ml
cardamom  (powder )- 4 or 1/4 tsp
cashew - 50 gm
raisins - 2 tbsp
salt - pinch to taste.

Steps to follow:
Wash and boil the tomatoes in hot water for few minutes.
Carefully remove the skin and blend it nicely and keep aside.
Remove the seeds and finely chop the dates and keep it aside.

In a vessel transfer the blended tomatoes  and let it boil till raw smell goes.
Add sugar, allow it to dissolve, then add cardamom powder and mix well.
 and add the chopped dates to it.
Let it cook for few minutes in low flame.
Then heat pan add ghee,  roast cashews and raisins to golden brown and immediately transfer to the tomato dates sweet.
Mix and serve warm or at room temperature.
Delicious tomato dates sweet is ready to taste.

While serving briyani,  I used to serve this sweet and raitha as side dish. Hope you people will try and enjoy this yummy sweet or jam.
