Desserts to try this Diwali

Why not try dates this Diwali? They are rich in vitamins, minerals, and fibre.

Dates are a popular choice of dessert among those who wish to limit overall sugar intake from their diet so go for some of the delectable homemade recipes shared by team BetterButtter and Salebhai.

Khajoor and peanut laddu (Sugar free)

Take peanuts in a thick bottom wok; roast on low flame till the nuts begin to crackle and the colour changes to golden brown. Leave the nuts to cool, meantime wash the dates and chop them into small pieces. Remove the skin of the nuts and grind the nuts to a fine powder in your grinder. Transfer the dates to the wok, add ghee and cook on low flame.
Soon the dates will begin to soften. Mash the dates with the back of the ladle, add peanut powder and mix well. Turn off the heat when the mixture is warm enough to handle. Mix with your hands and mash to get a mixture with dough like consistency. Make walnut size laddu out of it.

Oatmeal, khajoor and assorted nuts’ bars

Chop assorted nuts and keep aside. Process dates in a food processor until small bits remain. It should form dough like consistency and will roll into a ball. Dry roast or toast the rolled oats in a non-stick pan for a few minutes until the colour change to light brown. Place the oats, chopped nuts and dates in a bowl and set aside.

In a small saucepan, warm honey and peanut butter over low heat while you stir and pour over the oats mixture and then mix, breaking up the dates till well combined. Once thoroughly mixed, transfer to a pan lined with aluminium foil/parchment paper so they lift out easily. Press down until uniformly flattened and cover it with aluminium foil/ parchment paper or plastic wrap, and let it set in the refrigerator or freezer for 25 to 30 minutes to harden. Remove the set bar from the dish and chop into even bars.
