Khajur Roll | Dates & Nut Roll - Festive Treat

Finally a sugarfree sweet which is not only tasty but healthy too. My sister shared this recipe with me a few days back. I was actually super thrilled when I found out how easy it was to make this and so healthy.

Dates and nuts make a great paring. These Khajur Rolls make a healthy snack, a quick dessert and a great hiking/gyming companion.


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.
  1. Divide the mixture into 4 equal portions. Now roll into 1.5 inch thick logs.
  2. Refrigerate this for about an hour. 
  3. Spread the roasted poppy seeds on to a flat surface. Roll the dates log onto the poppy seeds making sure it coats evenly.
  4. Chop the sides to get an even surface. Now start cutting the log into thin 2-3 cm slices. 
  5. 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.

So dig in guilt free....Enjoy :-)
