Dates coconut balls

Date balls are the magic recipes that would easily find a place in your traditional festival platter as well as the Christmas cookie list. These easy dry fruit laddoos made with dates, cashew nuts and corn flakes are given unique flavor with grated coconut. If you want it to go vegetarian, you can take out the egg from ingredient list. But adding egg would make the balls softer. You can serve it as a snack or a dessert after a sumptuous festival meal.
