Creating a blog was out of the question for a long time for me, as measuring everything in the kitchen was like biting into an eggshell. I enjoy cooking and don’t want to waste even a slightest bit of enjoyment in that small world of mine. But little did I know that everything will change, when my husband came home with the Oscar nominated film ‘Julie and Julia’( a real life story) where Julie Powell (part played by Amy Adams) challenged herself to make all the 524 recipes from Julia Child's cook book ‘Mastering the Art of French Cooking’ and blogging all her experiences (The Julie/Julia Project). It was an inspiring movie. A few days later when we were discussing this casually with a friend of ours over tea…everything changed dramatically…..” How about you making at least half of it in one year? Not French but your own. 262 recipes that will inspire others and present it as a blog?” For a minute my mind traveled faster than light… With an experience as a helper in my mother in laws kitchen for 6 years followed by a three year everyday struggle to satisfy the palate of my foodie husband, if I cannot do it then why should I cook? But on the other side with an experience in English literature extending no more than expanding outline stories in English grammar class when I was 18 and two small kids that come in handy at times, will a commitment for the next one year work? Anyway my ‘cook's ego’ didn’t allow me to say no...

So my friends …here I am opening my recipe book, trying to perfect and present 262 recipes in the coming 365 days….A Challenge that will of course tastes good. Come.. Have a walk with me along my journey.. Cheering and inspiring….Forgiving and tolerating…Testing and tasting….for ‘A Tasty Challenge’

Date Roll

Recipe No 3

Food World (The former Spencer) was one of my favorite stores to shop for food items back in Kerala. There we used to buy this delicious date rolls which I just adore. I still remember me eating these rolls in the car without even having the patience to wait till we reach home!!! Here is the result of my effort to recreate that taste…  

Posted by Picasa

  • Dates ....2 cup (chopped into small pieces)
  • Butter.....3 Tablespoons
  • Sugar.......3 Tablespoons
  • Arrowroot Biscuits ....4 No’s (quartered)

Method of Preparation
  1. Chop the dates into really small pieces. If you have a food processor, use it to chop the dates finely.
  2. Melt butter in a pan and add the sugar.
  3. Add the dates to this and cook on a medium flame till it is soft and sort of melted.
  4. When you see everything coming together into one whole mass, switch off the flame and remove the Date mixture to another bowl so that it will start to cool fast.
  5. After 5 minutes add quartered arrowroot biscuits and mix gently so that the biscuits are not crushed at the same time spreads evenly in the Dates mixture.
  6. Dump the mixture to a parchment paper placed on a flat surface and shape into a log with your hands. Don’t press it very hard. Wrap it in the same parchment paper.
  7. Refrigerate this for at least 4 hours. If you are in a hurry then freeze it for half an hour.
  8. Take it out of the fridge, discard the parchment paper and cut the Date log into small rounds with approximately 1/4 of an inch thick.
  9. Serve it at room temperature.
Make it, enjoy the deliciousness and serve it your family…with love…
