Another recipe of Date Sweet is HERE

Note:
1. If you use sweet mava then you don’t add sugar because I thought that khajur were sweet enough.
2. If you don’t like to add water then you directly grind the dates into grinder but you need heavy duty grinder because dates are not soaked.

Love is the basis of every relation in human kind, without it the world is barren.

This is healthy. If you like to avoid oil you just boil all this ingredients with tomato and onion and blend with hand mixer and add all masala. After that cook for sometimes and serve hot with rice or roti.

Also try this if you like....
