The date fruit is acquired from a date palm and is a one-seeded fruit usually oblong in shape. It may vary in shape, size, colour and consistency of flesh, depending upon the condition of culture. It is available in dried as well as fresh form. The date fruit is extremely nutritious and held in great esteem since ancient times. Not many of you know that we can make a variety of delightful recipes using them apart from just using them in chutney or sweets.

The Date and Nut Coconut Cocoa Ball is an outta-the-world sweet treat, which can be had as a nutritious evening snack or double-up as a mithai for Diwali and other festivals . While there is nothing so new about making laddoos out of dry fruits, the coating of coconut and cocoa gives the balls an absolutely new dimension. Coating one side of the ball with coconut and the other side with cocoa not only gives it an all-new taste, but also a very appealing appearance with brown and white hues. You can make a few batches of this sweet and store it in an airtight container at room temperature. While you are on a sweet-making spree, try other delightful dates-based treats like the Date and Sesame Puranpoli and the Date and Walnut Cake .
Apples and dates – these are stuff that we almost always have at home! In this amazingly simple but super tasty recipe, we pop these into the blender with some curds and a touch of vanilla to make a luscious Apple Shake that soothes your senses and pampers your palate.

Cold and crunchy, the Carrot and Date Salad is a rejuvenating treat for your palate. It is important to chill the carrots and lettuce before making this salad in order to enhance their crunch. The carrot salad is served on a bed of lettuce to improve its visual appeal, plus lettuce also gives it a nice taste. The garnish of dates and roasted almonds is the masterstroke, which widens the range of textures and flavours of this salad. Make sure the salad stays in the fridge till you serve it, to preserve its crunchy texture and fresh taste. Serve it with the Honey and Lemon Dressing, for a tad more sweetness and a dash of tanginess too.
