D for dates

11 Mar

We could not have settled for anything else for letter “D” then the blessed DATES. There are numerous verses of the Quran that mentions it and many more ahadith that talks about it.

Aishah (RA) reported from Rasulullah (SAW) that a family which has dates will not be hungry. (Sahih Muslim)

I do make this recipe often as I feel it is a “super snack” for children and adults alike. Plus it is delicious. I did choose to use whole dates and unshelled pistachios to allow for more opportunities to practice on the fine motor skills.

Insya-Allah you can find this recipe is at Chachi’s Kitchen. A truly wonderful recipe blog that has tonnes of recipes that are a fusion of East Indian and African cuisines.
