Carrot date muffins are one of the most amazing muffins I have made so far. My child has a sweet tooth. If I don’t keep a healthy sweet option at home, he will end up eating chocolate or candies. When I was making these carrot and date muffins, I wasn’t really sure about the outcome. The results got awarded when my husband, who does not like to eat sweets, ate two muffins. The icing on the cake was the compliment on the perfect balance of sweetness. And the secret is that I extracted mostly from the dates and carrots and used very little sugar.

Cook's Tip:
When you first use a new cooker either boil the milk or prepare some kheer. Doing so, the cooker will not turn black anytime.
Whole cinnamon sticks gives a spicy aroma to food. Whole sticks are used and later removed. Ground cinnamon are normally used in baking.
Add a few drops of salt water to banana chips while frying them as this will make the chips crisper.
