Dates Fritters


This is one among the popular snacks in Kerala. I never knew about this recipe until i heard from Chaithanya,  my close friend & a wonderful cook! This recipe is her method of preparation and I just fell in love with this appetizer in my first trial itself. The best part of this snack is the stuffing inside the dates. The seed is carefully taken out & stuffed with cashew nut pieces which gives it quite a different & yummy taste!!!! Hope you guys will also enjoy this tea time snack. Do try it out & let me know how much you enjoyed :) :)

Ingredients
  • 1 cup Dates
  • 1 cup All-purpose flour (Maida)
  • 4 tsp Sugar
  • 1 tsp Cardamom powder 
  • 1/4 cup Cashew nuts
  • 1 cup sweetened Coconut Flakes 
  • 1/4 cup or more Water
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • A pinch of salt
Method
  1. Make a thick batter with flour, coconut flakes, sugar, salt & water.
  2. Chop the cashew nuts & mix with cardamom powder.
  3. Take out the seeds from all the dates carefully through one end & stuff with the cardamom coated cashew nuts.
  4. Heat oil and coat the stuffed dates in the prepared batter.
  5. Fry till golden brown and place in a paper towel so that excess oil will be absorbed. Eat hot & crispy!!!!!!
