Dates Burfi
Dates Burfi on second anniversary
Written by Jayashree
Published on February 21, 2016

I am extremly happy and its one of those cherished moments , my blog www.evergreendishes.com has turned two today. A journey I embarked after much thought, the hit of the button  and the message read “Congrats  for choosing us !” from the hosting service, was a shock for a moment, if I could ever do such a thing and soon things paved way. Well , since then the journey has been a wonderful experience. I am thankful  to one and all for the support. And as a token of appreciation  and celebration I bring to you the decadent Dates Burfi.

Dates are a good source of dietary fibre, antioxidants and essential minerals as potassium and manganese. The American Dietic Society suggests that eating food rich in anti oxidants may help prevent cancer,diabetes ,heart disease and even alzeihmers. further another study states that fibre rich diet is found to help reduce obesity, stroke, heart disease and hypertension.

The addition of nuts gives  taste  along with the benefits of proteins and minerals. Dates Burfi  are one of the major attractions that we  see in the sweets stall. They are called by different names as Dates Roll or dry fruit burfi. Sugar is not needed here in the preparation, thus it can be easily consumed by all. Thus it can be given to all but moderation is the key.

A sweet for all !
