Grab a date…

10 Aug

… not a dinner date. A medjool date, or whatever type you like really!

It is a sunnah of our Prophet (pbuh) to break your fast with dates and water. “If one of you is fasting, he should break his fast with dates. If dates are not available, then with water, for water is purifying.” [Ahmad]

I know we all would have stocked up on dates before the start of Ramadhaan so if you’re looking for some new ways to use your dates here’s one, date filled with nuts, you could almost call it a date baklava.

Nut filled dates

Ingredients

6 tsp nuts of your choice (I used cashews and pistachios)

12 dates ( I used medjool)

Note: the ratio is approximately 1 tsp of nuts to 2 dates

Method

Slice dates on one end and remove pit. Grind nuts in food processor or grinder. Fill each date with a teaspoon of ground nuts and serve.

A perfect ifthaar treat at home or for guests!
