Hi my dear friends of steemit.

Today am so excited to share with you one easy and healthy recipe and I am sure everyone will like it! It does not cost a lot as we need just little ingredients, and you don't need an oven to cook them!!!

The Mauritian Dates Halwa is a very famous sweet in Mauritius, and regardless of the fact that it is among the sweetest sweets, but we have to look at the benefits of dates which are manifested in:

  • Dates have a good energy, sugar, fiber, vitamin A.
  • Dates contains essential minerals such as calcium, iron, phosphorus, sodium, potassium, magnesium, and zinc.

Dates Halwa

So these are the ingredients which i used to prepare them:


  • 1/2 kg of dates paste (you can use the seedless one).
  • 100 gms of toasted and crushed almonds
  • 50 gms of butter
  • Half package of biscuit Marie.
  • Sesame seeds

Start by mixing the butter with dates paste and let them cooked until melt.

Then add the almond and mix well on medium fire!

And then lastly add the crushed biscuits and sesame seeds and cook for 1 more minute!

Mix and stir all well until you get a dry texture.
Let’s the mixture cool down!

Once cooled, take little of this mixture and roll in foil paper! Add some more sesame seed before rolling.

Put in fridge for 1 hour for them to not break when cut!

Et voila my friends...the Dates Halwa is ready!!!!! Wow they are super delicious!!!
These stays in the fridge for many days!!!

Bon Appetit!!!

Hello friend,? how are you in there?

Hi am fine thanks.

أرغب في مساعدتك على مساعدتي في كيفية إنشاء مشاركة مربحة ، وذلك بفضل صديقي

ello friend, I never imagined that you could make a delicious dessert with lentils, a great idea to have a snack with my girls and my husband, you must know very rich, thanks for sharing your recipe so genuine.

Hi dear! I didn’t made them with lentils that mean you didn’t read the post.

hello dear friend, excuse the bad impression, was that yesterday my husband and I had difficulties with the translator, but if I read your recipe, only we do not know why translated to lentils instead of mass dates, sorry if you uncomfortable.

that rich, an incredible recipe, I adore the sweets, and more than here it became so difficult, eat a simple sweet, but I am surprised that it is a recipe made with lentil grains, every day you learn something new with your wonderful recipes, thanks for sharing.

Hi friend! Please read the post again to know the ingredients which I used.

hello friend, I apologize was a translation error from English to Spanish, that's what happened!, instead of giving me dates gave me lentils.

Ok no problem I understand you.

Un diez definitivamente, muy sencillo y rico.
