Ingredients: (4 servings)
wheat flour, 500 grams
pitted dates, 500 grams
fine sugar, 125 grams
walnuts, 125 grams
cinnamon, one spoon
cardamom, 1/2 spoon
cooking oil, 300 grams
ground pistachio, one spoon
Heat oil in a pan until hot. Pour in wheat flour and turn down the heat.
Stir frequently until flour turns golden. Remove from heat and let cool
slightly. Add fine sugar, cinnamon and cardamom to flour and mix well.
Pour half of the flour-mix in a flat dish and flatten the surface with
the back of a spoon. Insert a piece of walnut inside each date and place
the dates on the flour-mix. Cover the dates with the rest of the
flour-mix and again flatten the surface with the back of a spoon.
Sprinkle ground pistachios on top. Cut into diamond-shaped pieces and
