Sweet / Dessert



Today i have for you all a healthy,sugar free, guilt free sweet that’s an absolutely beginners delight. I’m sure most of us have seen this in almost all sweet shops by different names like ” Dates Nuts Roll / Dates Burfi /Khajur Roll / Khajur Katri / Khajur Pak ” . Trust me when i say ,making Dates roll at home is super easy, hardly takes any time and taste wise… be prepared to get loads of praises.This looks as good as store bought sweets. Have a look..


Dates are naturally sweet and full of nutrition. Addition of nuts and poppy seeds makes it more nutritious. Since no sugar is added while making it, people who are diabetic can satisfy their sweet craving with it. Those on diet can also munch them without any worries as very little ghee goes into its making. Celebrate this Diwali a healthier way !!!

  • Allow the mixture to cool a bit. Divide into parts ,rub little ghee to your palm and shape to cylindrical rolls.
  • Spread poppy seeds in a plate and roll the sweet rolls ;so that the rolls get coated with poppy seeds.Refrigerate or set aside for 1 -2 hours. Cut into slices.
