Dates Roll

Tina & Anand, a Malaysian couple with 2 young boys, invited us to their house for Divali dinner. Tina had invited 2 other family ..I brought along the cookies that I made for Divali..hope she likes them.  One of her guest brought a few type of sweets..Dates Roll, Split Mung Dhall Puding, Fruit Cake and Seri Muka..I am familiar with Seri Muka as it is one Malaysia's famous local snack/sweet.  The rest of them tasted good too.

Dates Roll is a combination of nuts, sesame seed, raisins, oats and dates combine with melted butter and if you wish honey.  Its a very healthy dish and good if kids have a liking to it.

I made mine without honey to bring over for my monthly Tamil Ladies Birthday Gathering- this month with man of the house as it is Deepavali Gathering too.
