Pistachio and Cardamom Date Balls

FeeBi in Dreamland (mashallah, adorable)
Today was the First day of Fasting for us Muslims for the Occasion of the Blessed Month of Ramadan. I made a family favorite that we eat for a light dessert with Arabic coffee after meals and sometimes on its own.

Its very simple to make, and requires no cooking!

you will need:

2 cups of dates sticky dates mashed and pitted soaked in 1/2 cup warm water for 20 minutes

2 tsp cardamom powder

1 cup blended pistachio nuts, to a consistency to your liking(my family likes them a bit chunky)


Take dates out of water and make sure no water remains in dates, Mix with blended pistachios and cardamom, roll into small balls and sprinkle with a bit of pistachio powder. Serve in pretty platters with Arabic Coffee.

tip: coat your hands in olive oil a bit so that the date mix wont stick to them when your rolling it.
