Preparation

  1. Prepare round 7 or 8-inch cake tin with baking paper.
  2. Pour boiling water over your dates and let them sit for 10 minutes.  Then drain them well. Transfer the dates to a blender with the oats and a pinch of salt.
  3. Mix them until you get a sticky dough and then transfer this to your cake tin. Spread the dough evenly across the bottom of the tin.
  4. Smear layer of rose jam over the top of the crust and then set it in the freezer or refrigerator.
  5. Let the cashews soak in boiling water for 30-60 minutes. Then, drain them well then.
  6. Transfer the nuts to a blender. Add the lemon juice. Start the mixer and mix everything slowly.
  7. Heat the lemon jelly and the 1/2 cup of water on a stove until the water comes to a boil and the lemon jelly is dissolved.
  8. Mix this into the cashews until the "batter" is uniform and smooth.
  9. Once it's smooth, pour this into your cake tin and place it in the refrigerator to set.
  10. Once the cake has set, garnish it with dried rose petals before serving.
