Dates - Walnut Rolls

This is something I tried after reading the recipe from a magazine. The final result was really good and really new taste and most of all my girls like it :). Here is the recipe.

  1. Dates - 1 cup (remove the seeds)
  2. Milk - 1/2 cup
  3. Walnuts - 1/4 cup (chop it nicely)
  4. Ghee - 1 tbsp
  5. Sugar - 1 tbsp
  6. Shredded Coconut - 2 tbsp

Soak the dates in milk for half an hour. Grind it (with milk) coarsely and keep it aside. Now take a pan, put sugar and grounded dates and mix both well. It will become a thick paste (like Chakka Varatti) Remove it from the stove, add the chopped walnuts, ghee and mix it well. Let it cool. Make small balls (in cylindrical shape) out of it, sprinkle the coconut on top of it (or we can even roll it the shredded coconuts) and keep it in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 hours to let it set. After 4 hours, take it out and cut it into small pieces and enjoy. This is really a kids friendly snack. Try it.
