Chocolate Covered Date Pops

I like call these beauties golden and sliver dates. They are healthy and good source of fibre and vitamins.

Persian dates are called ‘ Khorma  ; in Farsi, however other words such as Nakhl and Rotab  are used too. Dates are grown and cultivated in South and East of Iran. From a historical point of view, it is estimated that the date palm was cultivated in Iran about the 3rd millennium BC . Archaeological evidence shows that there were signs of date trees in stamps from the Elamites period.

Iran is one of the most important producers of dates in the world and more than 400 types of dates are known in Iran.

Some dates are soft, dark and fleshy with high moisture and wet. Some are semi dried

The colour of dates varies from light brown to dark brown. Dates have different shapes, some are long and slender, some are round shape.

The Mazafati مضافتی fresh dates are one of the most famous and best tasting dates in Iran. Other type of very good quality Iranian date that are soft, slender and super tasty is called Piarom پیارم . The surface skin of piarom is very thin and clings to the date flesh.

In Iranian cuisine we use dates as an ingredient in main meals or stew, such as date-pilaf, egg-date for making snacks and desserts such as cookies, date pastry and cakes. Recipes to use dates are beyond the imagination. They are excellent to eat as they are . Dates contain good fibre and sugar.

Hello everyone, my name is Rozina. I am Iranian with Azerbaijani roots. I was raised in Iran but I am living in Scotland. I am passionate about cooking and preparing meals for my family and friends. I tell them the story behind the meal, the pronunciation of their Iranian name and the spices that used in Persian cuisine. I am a photographer, a cooking teacher, and very interested to introduce Persian and Azerbaijani meals, desserts and beverages to people from different cultures, as I love to try food from all over the world. Iranian cuisine is a combination of rice with meat ( chicken, beef, lamb, fish, turkey), nuts, fruits, dried and fresh herbs and vegetables. Iranian food is a celebration of flavor, colour and spices such as: saffron, cinnamon, cardamom, turmeric, dried rose petals, dried limes, cumin, .... I share my recipes in Farsi/English along with step by step photos of preparation. I take all my own pictures. I have learned my traditional Persian and Azerbaijani recipes from my lovely mother, and she has learned from her mother. Over the years, I have experimented and learned more recipes. Some of my recipes are a fusion Western and Middle Eastern cuisine. Some are forgotten from Persian cooking tables and I try with posting and sharing those ones, to preserve them. All my recipes and pictures are property of rozinaspersiankitchen. I would be pleased if you would mention my site if you wish to use any of them. So, if you are interested to know about Persian /Azerbaijani food taste, you can try my website. I will be glad to hear your ideas about my recipes. :) Thank you for visiting my website.
