A real quickie, this -
Take a cupful of dates (the red-brownish variety).
Clean and chop into quarters.
Fry in pure ghee (clarified butter) so the dates are crisp.
Let it cool to room temperature.
The dish tastes heavenly as it is. Can be eaten as an energy snack. You can also add these dates to gajjar halwa, kheer, or as topping for vanilla ice cream!
