Recipe for family meals :

Date and Milk Powder Bars

This is one of the recipes that has been provided by Vandana who is very much a keen cook of Indian dishes. Hopefully there will be more to come!

I asked Vandana for a little background information:

"I live in Pune, India. I am a South Indian so many of my recipes are from that area. I enjoy cooking and my family and friends do say that it is appetizing! By profession I am a Relocation Consultant and the India head of an International Charity. I hope that covers the introduction".


500 gm sugar
250 gm dates
250 gm milk powder
250 ml milk
125 gm ghee
50 gm cashewnuts chopped fine

  • Remove seeds from dates and cook for 20 minutes in milk.
  • Grind to a paste.
  • Add a cup of water to the sugar and boil till the syrup is of one thread consistancy.
  • Add the date paste,milk powder and ghee to the syrup.
  • Cook while stirring constantly. Remove the mixure from the gas stove when thick. Continue to stir until the mixure is very thick and becomes a lumpy mixure.
  • Pour it on to a greased plate and sprinkle with chopped cashewnuts. Cool and cut into squares.
