These scrumptious Khajur Rolls are made with dates, poppy seeds along with the goodness of dry fruits such as almonds, cashews, pistachios, etc. Give your taste buds a sweet treat with this lip-smacking dessert this Diwali and overwhelm your guests with the rich flavors this dish would offer.

Since Khajur Rolls or Khajur burfi are filled with dry fruits they provide a soft yet chewy texture. They make a power-packed workout snack and perfect for those having sweet tooth and don’t want to indulge in refined sugar-based desserts.

Khajur barfi is completely sugarless as dates are the source of sweetness in this burfi.


500 gms seed less dates,
1/4th cup almonds, chopped,
1/4th cup almonds, slivered,
1/4th cup pistachios, chopped,
1/4th cup golden raisins, washed and clean dried,
1/4th cup pumpkin seeds, (optional, I have not used)
1/4th cup cashews, (optional, I have not used)
2-3 tbsp poppy seeds, dry roasted,
1-2 tsp ghee,


  1. Chop the dates finely or run it in a food processor to make it into fine pieces.
  2. In a heavy bottomed pan, heat the ghee. Add the chopped dates and mix well.
  3. Let it simmer for 3-4 mins. Keep stirring in between.
  4. Add all the nuts and mix everything together. Remove from flame and allow it to cool completely.
  5. Divide the mixture into 4 equal portions. Now roll into 1.5 inch thick logs.
  6. Refrigerate this for about an hour.
  7. Spread the roasted poppy seeds on to a flat surface. Roll the dates log onto the poppy seeds making sure it coats evenly.
  8. Chop the sides to get an even surface. Now start cutting the log into thin 2-3 cm slices.
  9. Place it on a serving plate and serve.

This stays well for a very long time. Its like a nutri-bar which can be had daily. This tastes very delicious.
