  • 10 nos dates chopped
  • 30 nos figs
  • 3 tbsp nuts* chopped
  • 2 tsp ghee
  • 1 tbsp poppy seeds
  • 1/8 tsp cardamom powder

*Notes : I used cashew and badam


    • Deseed dates. Chop them roughly.
    • Soak figs in hot water for a while.
    • In 1/2 tsp ghee fry the chopped nuts and set aside.
    • Drain water and take soaked figs in a mixer and grind it to a paste, Set aside.
    • Now add chopped dates and grind to a paste.
    • In a pan add a tsp ghee add the fig dates mixture and keep sauteing for 5mins, add little ghee in between. At one stage it will form a mass and will come together without sticking.
    • At this stage add roasted nuts and give a quick mix, Switch off and set aside to cool.
    • In a kdaai add poppy seeds and roast for a 2-3 mins till a nutty aroma comes. Switch off and set aside.
    • Make 2 logs from the mixture and roll over roasted poppy seeds to coat the outer layer.
    • Wrap it in a butter paper. I made one log with poppy seeds coating and other plain.
    • Wrap it tightly and refrigerate it at least for 2 hrs. Then slice and serve.
    • Anjeer Burfi keeps well for 3 days in room temperature itself!


    • The measures are just given roughly, it can be modified according to your preference. There is no perfect measures for this recipe, so feel free to plus or minus the quantity.
    • I added chopped nuts just for the crunch, you can skip that too.
    • I couldn't wait for for 2 hours so just set for 1/2 hour and cut it so it was not that firm.
    • You can even add 1/4 sweetened khoya for extra richness.
    • Adding poppy seeds is optional but I recommend adding it for nice crunch ness.
