I am back again with a easy recipe which can be sweet at the same time lovely for a snack or anything.Just name it!!!... Its very easy to make and you can make it ina jiffy.This is a middle east sweet and usually people have this more during ramadan season during their fast breaking. Here dates is the most consumed during the fasting period and have them first when they break their fast... I would like to dedicate this sweet to my best friend Roshu. Since ramadan is around the corner, i actually thought of her while making this :)
Dates - 200 gms -seeds remove and made into paste (I had the paste packet with me)
Nuts and Almonds - approx 8 each (depends upon how much balls you get)
Butter - 1 tbsp
Dessicated Coconut - half handful for rolling the mix
If you have a packet of dates as paste then thats the best to use as it is time saving too.. Otherwise remove the seeds of the dates and then make them into paste ina grinder.
In a pan add butter, roast nuts and almonds and remove. In the same pan with butter, add in the date paste and saute for 15seconds - 30 seconds till butter is mixed properly with dates. Then remove and keep aside to cool. Meanwhile keep the dessicated coconut ready or grind the the grated coconut.
Make small balls of the date paste and then flatten them with hands. In between place one almond and cashew nut and cover and roll again to a ball. Roll it in coconut powder and serve!!!!
I m dedicating this recipe to all muslim blogger friends, especially to Ayeesha, Suhaina and Fajeeda :)
I would like to send this over to
