How to Make Dry Fruit and Nut Roll

  • Chop the nuts. Finely chop half the quantity of figs and dates.
  • Sprinkle some water on the remaining figs and heat in a microwave for a couple of minutes.
  • Grind the cooked figs and dates with as little water as required into a smooth paste.
  • Grind around 1/2 cup of the chopped nuts into a fine powder.
  • Heat ghee in wide, non-stick pan. Add the date-fig mixture. Cook on medium heat, stirring often to ensure the mixture doesn't scorch.
  • Cook until the mixture starts leaving the sides of the pan and starts to come together. Remove from the heat and add palkova/khova and mix well.
  • Add the nut powder, a little at a time, and as much as you need to make the mixture less sticky. Knead with your hands or a strong wooden spoon.
  • Add the chopped nuts, figs and dates and mix thoroughly.
  • Place a portion of the mixture on a sheet of cling film or clean sheet of plastic.
  • Form into a log around 1.5 inches across. Prepare three such logs, each around 8-9 inches long.
  • Wrap up well in the plastic sheet and refrigerate for a couple of hours or overnight.
  • Cut the log into roundels of desired thickness.
  • Keep refrigerated if you want firm pieces or keep it out if you do not mind slightly sticky ones.
