Date rolls do not require sugar or butter in it but taste delicious all the same. I learnt this recipe from my mother for a “no-fire cooking competition”.


Seedless dates: 500g

Marie biscuit: 8-10

Roasted dry fruits, optional: 1 tbsp


- Grind the dates in a blender.

- Powder the biscuits and keep aside.

- Take a heavy bottom pan and add the date mixture to it.

- Stir for 5-10 minutes until it forms a ball. Add the roasted nuts if desired.

- Roll out the date mixture to form a cylindrical shape and roll again on the powdered biscuit.

- Let cool for 10 minutes and cut them into circles and serve.
