This recipe makes 15-16 medium size rolls.

Ingredients:

1 cup - chopped Seedless Dates / Khajoor/kharjoora 
1/3 to 1/2 cup -  Mixed Dry Fruits/Nuts of your choice like Cashews, Almonds, Pecans etc.
2 tbsp -Poppy seeds
1 tbsp - Condensed milk  ( optional )
1 tbsp -Ghee (clarified butter) 

How To Prepare?


  • Chop nuts and dates into small pieces separately and keep it ready.This is a time consuming step.
  • Run chopped dates in a mixer just for few secs.                                                                                                
  • Dry roast poppy seeds in low flame till they are aromatic. You will be done within a minute. Allow it to cool down.
  • In the same pan , dry roast the chopped nuts for 1-2 minutes on medium flame and transfer them into a separate bowl.Heat ghee in a pan and add dates. Saute on a medium to low flame till dates become soft.Add chopped nuts and mix everything well.

  • At this stage if the mixture becomes very dry, add a spoonful of condensed milk and mix everything well to form a mass. (I did not use it as the mixture was not dry)
  • Now switch off the flame and let it cool down little bit. When it is warm grease your palm with ghee and shape it into cylindrical rolls.
  • Spread the roasted poppy seeds in a plate.Roll the rolls in poppy seeds. Make sure entire roll is covered with poppy seeds.Refrigerate/set aside for 1-2 hours and later cut into pieces of your desired shape.




Notes/Alternative:
  • I used only almonds , cashews and pecans. You can add pistachios too.
