Ever yearned for a mithai that is fuss-free yet irresistibly tasty? Well, here is your wish come true. All it takes to make these Date and Walnut Balls is chop, mix and shape, yet it is so good. Thanks to sweet and sticky dates, this sweet requires no sugar, which means it is not too high on calories. On the other hand, it tops the charts on nutritional aspects. Dates are rich in fibre, antioxidants and natural sugar, while also being a wonderful source of potassium, which keeps blood pressure in check. Walnuts, which are ably teamed with the dates here, are rich in omega 3 fatty acids and arginine. These ensure proper blood flow to the heart and keep the heart’s lining healthy.
