Stuffed Dates Roll

  • Dates (Seedless) 3 to 4
  • Puff Pastry Sheets 3 to 4
  • Cashew Nuts 1/4 cup chopped
  • Cardamom Pdr 1/2 to 1 Tsp
  • Shredded Coconut 1 to 2 Tbsp
  • Sugar 1 to 2 Tsp
  • Egg white (Optional)
  • Ghee

Thaw the puff pastry sheet for 1/2 hour. Cut it into medium sized square pieces and keep it aside. Split the dates and keep it aside. Heat ghee in a pan and add chopped nuts. Shallow fry it. Lower the flame and add shredded coconut, sugar and cardamom pdr. Combine well and remove it from fire. Stuff the dates with this mixture. Slightly thin out the puff pastry sheet using a rolling pin. Keep the stuffed dates in a corner and roll the sheet over it and use either egg white or water to apply at the end of the sheet to act as an adhesive. Twist the ends of the sheet. For glacing, brush egg white over the roll. Preheat the oven to 350 deg F and bake them for 15 to 20 mins.
