When I saw this on one of sites I was very very desparate to make it. Went to the market, bought all the ingredients and just made it. Its really a mouth watering burfi from figs and dates... And also a wonderful entry for this months sweet series event of toi...
So here goes a very very simple yet delicious burfi...


1 1/2 cups dried figs
1 1/2 cups dates seeded
25-30 Almonds
15-20 Cashews
15-20 Pistachios
1/2 cup ghee
1-2 silver warq (optional)


1. Soak dried figs in two cups of water for three to four hours. drain and make a puree using a little water if required. Alternatively, place dried figs in one cup of hot water for two to three minutes. Drain and let cool. Make a puree using a little water if required.
2. Chop seedless dates and place in half a cup of hot water for fifteen to twenty minutes. Make a puree. Alternatively, cook dates in a Microwave oven on microwave high for thirty seconds and make a puree using little water if required.
3. Chop almonds, cashews, pistachios fine. Grease a tray with little ghee.
4. Heat ghee in a pan. Add figs puree and dates puree. Stir well and cook on medium heat, stirring continuously, for ten to fifteen minutes or till excess moisture dries up.
5. Add almonds, cashews and pistas. Mix well and continue to cook for ten to fifteen minutes stirring continuously. The mixture will begin to leave the sides of the pan.
