Madgooga: An Iraqi Date Confection

'This confection is called madgooga (literally ‘the pounded’) as it was traditionally made of equal amounts of dry dates and walnut or rashi/tahini (sesame paste) pounded into paste with a mortar and pestle for a long time, nowadays conveniently replaced with the food processor', Nawal Nasrallah explains on her blog, In My Iraqi Kitchen.

You can read her recipe for madgooga here. She is the author of Dates: A Global History as well as the award-winning History of the Iraqi Cuisine
