Anjeer & Khajur Rolls

December is indeed a special month for me as there is my marriage anniversary as well as my elder son’s birthday. And in addition, the weather is just awesome. There is a nip in the air, festivity in the environment and liveliness all around. Malls and other marketplaces are beautifully set up and are decked up with Christmas goodies. All over the city, fares and carnivals are put up. It is, in fact, one of the best months to hang around, to celebrate and to have fun and frolic.

At this time of the year, on my anniversary, that is today, since I am not in the city, so instead of baking a cake, I decided to make this special sweet. It is special for us as both I and my hubby loves it. It is one of my favourite sweets and my hubby too can have it free of guilt as it doesn’t have any refined sugar or fat.

Seeing the benefits of both dates and figs, I jam all ga ga for this sweet and ust can’t stop raving about it. And the icing on the cake is that it is the simplest sweet to make. Just 5 minutes of cooking (can make without cooking also) and you have the tastiest sweet.

Do I need to say anything more about this beauty?

Benefits of Dates and Figs are well known to everybody so I won’t take more of your time and come straight away to the recipe now. 

When I made these for my sister in law, I even used Foxtail (Makhana) in it as she doesn’t like cashews. So, even that can be added.

Dates & Figs Rolls

I added mixed seeds in this, like melon seeds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds. You can add sesame seeds also.

Q) Why Figs Paste Is Cooked?

As this sweet is all dry fruits then why did I cook it? Figs are very hard and it is not easy to grind them. So, soak these in water for an hour or so, they soften up and then put them in the food processor. Now, to get rid of this water and to increase its shelf life the grounded figs were sauteed for a while. That’s it. No other specific reason.

Q) What is the shelf life of these rolls?

Stays good at room temperature for up to a month.

Q) Is it necessary to roast the nuts?

Q) How can I shape these differently?

Call it Khajur & Anjeer Roll or Dates barfi or dry fruits Barfi or Energy Bar. Yes, you may call it by whichever name you like the most and thus shape accordingly.

Khajur & Anjeer Rolls

This is nothing but a bundle of dry fruits beautifully rolled up in the form of a sweet, that too without any refined sugar and fat. A very forgiving recipe where nothing can go wrong.
Course Dessert
Cuisine Indian


  • 200 g Figs
  • 200 g Dates Seedless
  • 100 g Almonds
  • 100 g Cashews
  • 50 g Pistachios (Soaked, Peeled and Chopped)
  • 50 g Mixed Seeds
  • 2 Tablespoon Poppy Seeds Khuskhus


  • Soak anjeer in water for an hour or so. This is done so they get soft and can be easily grounded.
  • In the meantime, roast nuts and seeds. I roasted them in the airfryer so no oil/ghee was required. Let them cool down. Once cool, then chop them into small pieces.
  • Remove anjeer from the water, squeeze out all extra water and pat them dry.
  • Put soaked and squeezed anjeer (figs) and khajur (pitted dates) in the food processor.
  • Run the food processor for about 30 seconds, stopping after every 10 seconds. Better to do it on pulse mode. This is because we need a coarse mix and not paste like. In the absence of food processor, grind it in the grinder but use pulse mode.
  • Heat a non-stick pan, put the Dates-Figs mix and saute it for about 5 minutes, stirring constantly, so that extra water, if any evaporates. Also, the mix loosens up due to heat and it becomes easy to mix dried fruits in it.
  • Switch off the flame, add chopped nuts and seeds (except Poppy seeds). Mix everything and let it cool a little.
  • When the mix is still warm, form laddoos or divide it into 2 or 3 parts. Make a ball and turn it into a cylindrical shape (roll) by rolling on your work surface.
  • Spread some roasted poppy seeds on the work surface and roll the log over it so that Poppy seeds sticks all over it.
  • Wrap this roll in aluminium foil and keep it in the refrigerator atleast for an hour (you can keep it longer also). Doing this makes the rolls firm and easier to cut into roundels.
  • Take it out, cut roundels and your dates and figs rolls are ready.
  • Store them or Gift it or bite it.
  • Stays good at room temperature for up to a month.


  • Greasing your hands with little (1/4 teaspoon) clarified butter (Ghee) before making laddoos/rolls will give a beautiful glossy look to them.


  1. If adding sesame seeds and muskmelon seeds then it's better to roast them first.
  2. I used a non-stick pan and therefore didn't use any ghee. If you use metal pan then add 1 tablespoon of ghee to avoid sticking.
