This is my Kaki's recipe for people with a sweet tooth but calorie aware. She herself must pop a sweet in the mouth after dinner else its not complete. This is a completely sugar free sweet full of natural sweetness and so easy to make.
1 cup chopped black plump seedless dates
1/4 cup chopped dry figs
1/4 cup cashew nut granules
2 teaspoons ghee
First of all we have to mash the figs and dates with a pestle to make it easy to heat but this is not a must. Then in a heavy bottom pan heat the ghee and add the mashed figs and dates heat the mix till it starts leaving the sides of the pan. Take care not to burn the mix so keep mixing. Now remove the mix from the stove and pour it out on a board. Mash it again using a rolling pin and mix thoroughly as if you are making the dough for chapati/roti. Add the cashew nut granules. If granules are not available readily just coarse grind in a mixie to make them. Mix thoroughly once more. Roll the mix on the board to give you toffee of the shape you like. Coat with some more cashew nut granules. To add the professional touch wrap them in colorful cellophane paper or foil. These last almost for a year in the fridge if one allows to but you know these things will be gobbled up as soon as possible.
