Dates and Nuts Burfi is very nutritious and yummy and very healthy sweet. No sugar in it. This is one of my earlier recipe.
Dates are free from cholesterol and contain very low fat. Dates are rich in vitamins and minerals. They are rich source of protein, dietary fiber. It helps to improve the digestive system as it contains soluble and insoluble fibers. they are great energy boosters as they contain natural sugars. Dates are very low in calories and suitable for health conscious people.
