Heat the Ghee in a large skillet. Add the cinnamon and cook for about 30 seconds.

Now add the cardamon and mix well. Allow the mixture to cool. Pour the coconut in a mixing bowl. Take about 2 tablespoons of the date mix and roll into a ball. Then roll the ball in the shredded coconut. Do this with the rest of the mix and roll them in coconut.
