How to make it

  • Fry the almonds in little oil until golden brown, then place them on absorbent paper towels for a few minutes to absorb any excess oil.
  • Melt butter in a heavy based sauce pan.
  • Add dates and ground cardamom.
  • Stir well over low heat, until well blended. (Dates should not stick to the bottom and sides of the pan.)
  • Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
  • Wet your palm and place a small amount of date mixture in the centre of your palm and shape into a smooth ball.
  • Indent the centre with your thumb and press an almond into it.
  • Fold the sides and reshape into an oval or date shape.
  • Repeat with remaining date mixture.
  • Roll each date in the desiccated coconut and arrange on a serving dish.
