Nidhi Raj from SoulAndSpiceBox.com was a guest at our show and shared this wonderful recipe with us. It is easy, quick and a sweet, what more could we want for the festivals coming up! We loved this recipe because it’s there is no added sugar and the sweetness comes from the Dates, which are technically good for you hence making this a “Healthy Sweet”. Thank you Nidhi for sharing Dry Fruit Rolls Recipe with us and we wish you lots of success. Please don’t forget to visit her page SoulAndSpiceBox.com.

9. Once its cool enough to handle, rub some Ghee on your hands and divide the mixture into two.
10. Shape the mixture into 2 cylinders, while pressing it firmly.
11. Once the roll is made, take a plate and spread out the chopped Pistachios.
12. Roll the mixture on the chopped Pistachios while pressing lightly.
13. Once the garnishing is done, roll the mixture tightly in an aluminum foil or plastic wrap and secure both ends firmly.
