Khajoor or Dates Roll Barfi

  • No sugar added – natural sweetness from dates
  • Nuts add crunch and protein
  • Great for gifting or even just as an energy bite for home!

This recipe uses only dates to make the sweet. But, you can also add in raisins, cranberries, apricots or really any other dried fruits you may have! If you add figs you will have anjeer barfi!

Key Notes on Ingredients and Substitutes

  • Nuts: Use roasted nuts for best flavor. I have used a blend of nuts, however you can use whatever you have on hand! Just keep the ratio of nuts and/or seeds to dates the same and you will be set.
  • Dates: I have used only dates in this barfi. You can substitute some of the dates for raisins. You can also add in cranberries, apricots or other dried fruits that you enjoy.
  • Desiccated Coconut: After the dates roll is made, I roll the sweet in desiccated coconut. You can also roll it in toasted poppy seeds or even skip the step.
  • Vegan: To make this vegan, instead of ghee I would use plant based butter or ghee alternative.

This dry fruit barfi lasts up to a month in an airtight container. So, you can make it ahead of time for gift giving season! Just like Kaju Katli

Making Dry Fruit Barfi

Prep: First, chop the dates and roughly chop the roasted nuts. (if not roasted, roast the nuts first!)

To save time, use a food processor to give the roasted nuts about 3 pulses. A few pulses is all you really need to roughly chop them in the food processor.

Get cooking!

  • Then, heat ghee in pot on stove and add dates to pan.
  • Cook on medium-high about 4-5 minutes while stirring. They will begin to break down and form a thick paste.
  • Add in cardamom and nuts and mix thoroughly.
  • Let cool.

Make the date nut rolls: Once the mixture is cool roll with hands into log shape. I divided the mixture into four equal parts and made rolls. Roll them in desiccated coconut.

Cut and serve! Khajoor burfi will stay good in an air tight container for about a month.
