    When milk & ghee ready, use the Dough mode setting, remove MC and slowly add the ghee followed by the warm milk. Once added, leaving mixing on Dough modesetting for 5min or until all combined.

    Oil a large mixing bowl with some olive oil then put the dough in there, cover with glad wrap and a tea towel and leave somewhere warm for 2 hours. Dough will double in size and become "fluffy".

You should end up with a dates paste. its ok if its not smooth as long as no big pieces of dates. Taste, it shouldnt be overpowering of rose water but should have nice sweet taste. Adjust accordingly.

    Get a ball of dough size of gold ball. Using your index finger shape the dough around your finger to make a tunnel inside. get a teaspoon of the date paste and drop it in. Pinch the top of ball shut then roll back into shape and press into mould as above.
