How to Make Date & Coconut roll

  • Heat the ghee in a karahi (also kadai, korai, karai, kadhi, kadahi, kadhai or cheena chatti). Add the dates and stir over a medium flame. Keep pressing the dates with a heavy ladle.
  • Once the dates are mixed well (this should take just a few minutes), add the cashew nuts and continue stirring.
  • Take the mixture off the fire after a few minutes and when cool enough to handle, shape into sausage like rolls.
  • Sprinkle dessicated coconut on the roll, slice and serve.
  • If you use ordinary dates, add 1 tbsp condensed milk to the dates.
