Date and Nuts Rolls/ Burfi

इस व्यंजन को हिन्दी में पढ़ें

These date and nut rolls are super delicious, healthy, and easy to make dessert. These are made with assorted nuts (I have used almonds, pecans, cashews, and pistachio) along with dates. These rolls are delectable and are a good source of protein, dietary fibers, and minerals such as potassium, calcium, magnesium etc. Nuts are rich in healthy fats and are considered essential for a healthy heart.

For binding the rolls and to add to the sweet flavor, I have added dates. Dates are rich in iron, dietary fibers, and antioxidants and are naturally sweet.

You can take nuts and dried fruits as per your taste and availability. Usually, it is easier to bind and shape the rolls if you take similar quantities of nuts and dried fruits, however, you can make changes as per your taste. I like to add more nuts and go easy on the dates.

These rolls are also healthy for diabetics as we haven’t added any additional sugar. It is super easy to make these rolls. Try this recipe and please do share your valuable comments. Happy cooking, Shuchi
