Dates Halwa

If u have loads of dates, just give a trial to this delicious halwa u wont regret at all also its a quick way to finish those dates sitting sadly since a long coz this halwa hardly goes for simple ingredients like pitted seedless dates, milk, sugar, ghee and cashewnuts..Its a beautiful halwa which suits prefect for a sweet tooth also at the same time loaded with many health values eventhough we use ghee in this halwa,coz i cant imagine halwa without ghee,if u dont like to use ghee u go for butter or else dalda, but the aroma of the ghee suits absolutely prefect for making dates halwa..One more easy breezy diwali sweets am gonna prepare for the sure, yep this halwa goes for easy cooking process and even my little one loved it..Actually the dates i have used in this halwa wasnt that much sweet, thats y i have added sugar, in case if urs were sweet, u can definitely skip the sugar..Sending to CFK-Festive Foods guest hosted by Suma, event by Sharmi..

Dates Halwa

1cup Pitted seedless dates
1cup Milk
1/4cup Sugar
2tbsp Ghee
20nos Cashew nuts

Fry the cashew nuts until they turns golden brown, keep aside..In an another pan, cook the dates and milk until they turns soft..let it cool and grind as fine paste..Cook the dates paste and sugar until its turns as thick paste, add the ghee  and the roasted cashew nuts, stir continously..this paste will get off from the bottom of the pan after few minutes, immediately pour this halwa in a greased pan and cut as u desire once they get cooled..

Enjoy..Can stay prefect in room temperature for 2-3days..

Dates halwa looks very yummy. Is it possible to omit the sugar part as dates itself is very sweet..?
