Fig & Date burfi is a nutritious dessert. Here both Figs and Dates along with some Nuts are cooked together and formed into the desired shapes. It's a good way of eating nuts in tasty form and of course non messy!

4

Preparation Time:

2 - 4 hours

Cooking Time:

20 mins

Dried Figs - ½ Cup
 
 Pitted dates - ½ Cup
 
 Almonds chopped - About 10
 
 Cashewnuts chopped - About 6

Method:

• Soak dried Figs in two Cups of Water for about three hours.

Testimonial:

"Dear Spices of India, This was the first time I have shopped with you, but will certainly not be the last. My selection has just arrived, very securely packed, less than 24 hours from my online order. Not bad for a free, standard delivery! Many thanks. I was very impressed by the range of stock you carry - many old favourites I have been unable to source locally, plus lots more to explore over time - and in many cases significantly cheaper than their supermarket equivalents (where available). I also found the web site very easy to navigate and informative about the sometimes unfamiliar ingredients."
