Rose and Pistachio Stuffed Dates

Rose and Pistachio Stuffed Dates are absolutely delicious and nutritious dates which have been stuffed with pistachios, honey and rose water.

Rose and Pistachio is a combination made in heaven and they make an excellent stuffing for dates. Dates, as such, are quite delicious, but with a stuffing, they are a level higher.

The Middle Eastern countries have such a huge variety of these Stuffed Dates that a person gets confused as to what to buy. They even have a huge variety of the regular dates and one can use any variety while preparing these stuffed ones. Medjool dates work the best, but I love Kimia and always have a stock of these, so went along with them.

Choose the greenest quality of pistachios, they taste excellent and look so so pretty and vibrant after being mixed with honey and rose water. They not only look pretty but lend a heavenly flavour.

I made the Rose and Pistachio Stuffed Dates for the Iftar Platter which was specially made for the Thali and Platter Festival for our September Mega Marathon.
