Servings 6


  • 10 - 12 Dates
  • 1/2 cup Cream cheese
  • 1/2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp Rooh Afza
  • 4 tbsp roasted pistachios
  • 1/2 tbsp dried rose petals (optional)


  • In a bowl add in cream cheese, honey, Rooh Afza and mix well. I used a hand blender to blend the mix. Remove the pits from all the dates.
  • Coarsely grind the pistachios in a mortar and pestle.
  • Gently split each date so it breaks halfway open. Further, lay the dates on a plate.
  • With a teaspoon, gently put a dollop of the Roof Afza cream cheese mix inside each date and squeeze it together, as if to close it up again
  • Top off with pistachios and dried rose petals. Serve as a dessert or snack. This can be stored in the refrigerator for a few days.
