Date Rolls With Coconut Recipe

by Food Like Amma, August 31, 2011
There are two of Amma’s treats that always come to mind when I smell roasting coconut - Poli and Date Rolls. Date Rolls are date filled biscuits rolled in coconut. These finger shaped treats were usually made by Amma for Diwali or if we were expecting any visitors. My older sisters were at University in Durban, so often did not celebrate Diwali at home with us. Amma always stored a reused  ice cream box full in the freezer for them. Date rolls freeze very well, simply take out the night before to thaw.
