Dates & Nuts Momos~~A Virtual Birthday Party For Shama

We all know that we cant chose our parents but we can chose our friends, bloggy world was quite kind enough with me until now and this virtual world showered me with many wonderful,humble and honest friends aka sisters. One among those is Shama Nagarajan who blogs at Shama's Easy2Cook Recipes, she blogs since 2008 and recently i started chitchating with her eventhough we know each other mutually since a long. She celebrates her birthday today and with a few of my blogger friends we planned to celebrate Shama's birthday virtually by cooking sweets or making drinks from her space.

Happy Birthday to You Shama.. May God bless You..

Shama shares many interesting, variety and easy foods in her space.For her virtual birthday celebration, i wanted to make something as sweet but healthy, so i picked this healthy,nutty momos from her space. I prepared them yesterday for our snacks, trust me they were just fantabulous, delicious and seriously very healthy. Shama used sugar in her momos which i completely skipped in mine.Whoever hates dates will definitely love this healthy steamed foods, wat an incredible way to sneak the famous healthy dates. My kids enjoyed this momos with honey,seriously their yesterday's snack was tremendous and completely guilt free.

Do check Sangee,Manjula and Divya who are celebrating this virtual birthday party with me..


1cup All purpose flour
1tbsp Oil

For stuffing:
1cup Chopped dates
5nos Almonds
10nos Pistachios
10nos Cashew nuts
1no Greeb cardamom
3tbsp Grated coconut
1tbsp Butter

Knead a soft and smooth dough with flour, oil and water, keep aside for 15minutes.

Heat the butter, add the chopped dates,coconut, nuts,cardamom together for few minutes,put off the stove.

Once they gets slightly cool, grind them as bit coarse paste.

Make out small balls from the dough.

Dust the dough with flour and roll it as medium size circles.

Place enough dates-nuts mixture in the center of the circle,bring the edges of the circle together towards the center.

Seal the edges tightly and keep aside.

Repeat the same process with the remaining dough and stuffing.

Steam cook the momos in idli pan for 5minutes.

Serve warm with honey.
