Prefer breaking your Ramzan fast with dates?
Why settle for the ordinary variety, when you can jazz the dates up with chopped walnuts and melted chocolate and make a tasty sweetmeat.
Chef Sabyasachi Gorai's Chocolate Dates can be prepared in advance and enjoyed daily when you break your fast.
And even if you are not fasting, you would love these date treats.
- 1 cup walnuts, cut into halves
- 10 dates
- ½ cup chocolate, melted
- Flaky sea salt
- Pit the dates and slice down the middle to make an easy opening for the stuffing.
- Place 2-3 sliced walnuts into the centre of each date and pinch each date closed after stuffing.
Dip the bottom half of each date into the melted chocolate.
Sprinkle with the flaky sea salt and place on a plate or parchment paper to harden.
Refrigerate for a few hours and serve.
