  12. Remove the rolls from the foil and cut them into half cm size round pieces.
  13. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for upto 2 months.

Recipe Notes For Khajur Ki Burfi

  • Can grind the dates in a mixer grinder till it forms a soft paste. ( Don’t add water)
  • Chop the nuts in medium size as it will be difficult to form khajur burfi rolls with large pieces of nuts.
  • Can use any dried nuts of your choice, just keep the final measurements same.
  • Don’t add extra nuts else it will be difficult to form logs.
  • These dont need extra sugar as dates naturally sweet.
