Many of the spices from India have found their way into other countries and one such good example is BAM dates. BAM DATES is a term that is commonly used in the Indian states of Rajasthan and Gujarat. The state of Rajasthan is best known for its rich fertile plains and it is from here that BAM dates were first introduced. The dates themselves come from two locations – Mizoram in Maharashtra Andinar Jodhpur in Andhra Pradesh.
The sweet, dark brown color of these dates is what makes them popular in Indian cuisine. The name BAM comes from two places and is pronounced BAM – as in masala. They are known as the “dark brown” ones in India. Kalute and Mazafati dates are probably the other major varieties of dates from India.
It’s interesting to note here that the kaute dates aren’t actually any older than the Bam dates. The state of Mizoram in India is where the two main varieties of dates come from. The Bam dates are farmed specifically for harvesting and they are harvested by hand. They get dried out so much that their texture gets changed. They lose their brown color but retain their crunchy texture. The reason for this is that they are harvested using very small and tightly spaced hand tools, which causes them to lose much of their moisture.
The dates from India have a delicious taste and are widely used for preparing mouth-watering dishes. These dumplings or pakoras are popularly known as Mumbai or Mumbaikars. These mouth watering dumplings are not only a source of great amusement for street vendors but also for making rich men rich.
These tamales are made from a variety of dates such as: marena, arabica, semolina, bahara and indigeon ka fetch.
