Ingredients

  • 300 g Dates (Khajur)
  • 200 g Figs (Anjeer)
  • 250 g Nuts Almonds, pistachios, cashews and walnuts (Roughly chopped)
  • 30 g Almonds Slivers
  • 70 ml Coconut Oil
  • 100 ml Water

Instructions

Preparation for the Khajur Dry Fruit Barfi

  • Soak the figs in 100 ml water for 4 to 6 hours or overnight.
  • Make slivers of 5 to 10 almonds and set aside.
  • Roast the roughly chopped nuts and set aside.
  • Line a tray with butter paper and grease with coconut oil. Sprinkle the slivered almonds on it and set aside.

Cooking the Khajur Dry Fruit Barfi

  • Grind the figs or anjeer along with the dates to form a rough paste.
  • Add 70 ml coconut oil to an open pan.
  • Pour the date and fig mixture into this pan and stir till it gets quite dry.
  • Add in the chopped nuts and fry for a few more minutes till it starts to leave the sides.
  • Pour the mixture into the pre-greased tray and cover with another sheet of butter paper.
  • Flatten the mixture with your hand, a spatula or a piece of cloth. (If using your hand, wait for a few minutes and grease your fingers well to avoid burning them.)
  • Once flat, refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours. The longer the better.
  • Once ready, peel of the top layer of tissue paper, turn it over on a chopping board, cut into slices and serve.
