Stuffed Date Fritters/ Eenthapazham Nirachu Porichathu
Stuffed Date Fritters remind me of Ramdhan spent in Abudhabi, UAE. When Ramdhan falls during July-August, you get different varieties of dates from the farm that are sweeter than honey and give you a jump start while breaking a day long fast from dawn to dusk. Some Arab farm owners may gift you few kilograms of dates just for visiting their farms.

Raw Cashewnuts 10 No
All purpose Flour 1/2 cup
