Dry Fruits and Nuts Barfi

I know its bit late, but still wishing all my friends and readers a Happy New Year. Hope you all had a great time. I am glad to be back to my blog after an unexpected break of one month. Missed blogging and all the delicious recipes posted by my friends; hoping to catch up with everything soon. I wanted to post a healthy yet delicious sweet on my blog to kick start this year.

Dry fruits and nuts barfi is a sugar free dessert to satisfy the sweet cravings without worrying about the calories! It also makes a filling and healthy snack for kids. I have used dried figs and dates in this barfi, but you can also add other dried fruits like apricots, raisins and cranberries. This easy barfi can be also made for festivals like Diwali. Store these in air tight container and refrigerate, stays good for a week.


Yield 16 medium square pieces

Sugar free fudge with dried fruits and mixed nuts


1 ½ cup dried figs
1 cup dates
⅓ cup pistachios, chopped
¼ cup almonds, chopped
¼ cup cashews, chopped
3 tsp ghee
½ tsp cardamom powder


1. Dry roast the nuts over medium flame for about 2-3 minutes or until nice aroma comes. Set aside.

2. Soak the figs in hot water for 10 minutes. Drain well and blend it a food processor or blender to a smooth paste. Set aside.

3. Remove the seeds of dates and blend it to a coarse paste or chop them up roughly. Set aside.

4. In a pan heat ghee and add the fig paste. Cook it over medium heat for 3-4 minutes. Then add the dates and cook for another 2-3 minutes.

5. Then add the roasted nuts, cardamon powder and combine well. Cook for one minute and remove from heat.

6. Transfer the contents to a greased tray or pan. Grease the bottom of a steel bowl or glass and press the mixture evenly.

7. Allow it to cool a bit and refrigerate for 20-30 minutes. Cut them into squares or your desired shape.
