Dates Burfi with Nuts (Khajoor Ladoo)

Today I am going to write about a recipe which I learned from my friend and colleague Leena. This is a sweet made with Dates/Khajoor and nuts.

Information about Dates:

Dates are very nutritious. Dates are loaded with the energy you need every day – to win a marathon race or get you through a tough day. With only 24 calories per date (248 per 100 gram serving), dates are high in dietary fiber, low in fat, cholesterol, and sodium, and contain more potassium than bananas! Very few other fruits offer this healthful combination. Dates also helps to build the body and reduces alcohol intoxication. It is usually taken raw or with milk. It is a good source of calcium and iron and sugars. More nutritious values can be found here.

Now coming to the recipe, this recipe has lots of nuts. I used almonds,walnuts, pistachios, pecans. I was surprised to know that it is very easy to make. It just took me 20 mts to make this recipe. So try this delicious and nutritious sweet.


1 cup of chopped dates
1/2 cup of chopped nuts( You can use any nuts of your choice. I used almonds, pistachios, walnuts and pecans)
1tbsp of ghee


1. Heat a tbsp of ghee in a pan and add chopped nuts. Once the nuts turn into golden color, remove it from the pan and keep it aside.

2. In the same pan add the chopped dates on medium heat. Once the dates starts melting add the roasted nuts. (Note: Dates takes very less time to melt. )

3. Mix the nuts with melted date mixture and remove it from heat.

4. When the mixture is still warm grease your hands with ghee or oil and roll into small balls or burfi shape. I made few as laddos/balls and few as burfi.

(For burfi shape roll the mixture into rectangular shape and cut into pieces of desired size)
