Hi, this is the month of festivity & fun. Or you can say our holiday season, of course.
All the festivals are almost there…especially Diwali. But let’s talk about Navaratri & Dusherra first.
Today is the fourth day of navaratri and I am fasting all nine like always. So I am going to eat specific vegetables & spices and no grains.
Its festival time so let’s start with a healthy sweet (Believe me it is)
This recipe comes from one of my good friend (all the best to her coz she is due any time..)
2 cups dates, pitted and chopped
1 cup mixed nuts Chopped
(Almonds, cashew, pistachio, walnuts anything of your choice)
2 tbsp ghee
In a non- stick pan, Melt ghee on slow flame and add Dates in it and keep smashing it until it blends well and turns soft.
Add chopped nuts and mix well along with dates in slow flame. Remove from heat and when cool enough to handle, spread it on to a greased surface, with a greased rolling pin (I use my palm for it)
Gently roll from the edge as tightly as possible and wrap it in plastic wrap or aluminium foil.
Keep it aside for 2 hours and when ready to eat cut the roll in thin slices.
Enjoy no guilt sweet.
