Dry Fruits Burfi / Khajur Pak / Dates Roll

How about a sweet which is so healthy, so delicious, so quick, so easy and looks so good!! All are true about this dates roll. Imagine a sweet with no sugar (of course dates has sweetness) and very very little ghee… I got this recipe from here and many very little changes. I wanted to add this sweet for Diwali on my blog and am very happy to include it in the BM under Kids – delight – healthy makeover.

Puree the raisins and set aside. You can also chop it fine.
Heat a table spoon ghee in a pan and add a table spoon of coconut and then poppy seeds.
Roast for just a little until there is little color change.
Add the chopped dates and raisins and cook on low heat till it gets little tender and mushy..
Keep stirring to ensure that it does burn. Add cardamom powder, nutmeg and edible camphor and remove from heat.
Let it cool
Wrap the rolling pin with plastic wrap and the rolling board with ziploc as it will stick very badly
Roll it with hand by pressing to a thin layer.
You can also apply little ghee in the palms and press it with the palm to make to a thin sheet. I made it with my hands.
spread the nuts over the rolled dates sheet and press the nuts a little to ensure that they are stuck on the dates sheet.
Now roll the dates sheet to a tight cylinder making sure that it is a tight cylinder to a log..
Cut into small pieces and the dry fruits burfi is ready
Roll them on dry coconut for extra garnish and elegance.
