How to make dry fruits barfi

Grinding dry fruits

1. Blanch 6 to 7 dried figs and 1 tbsp raisins in hot water. For blanching boil ⅓ cup water and take it in a bowl. Add the dried figs and raisins. Cover and keep the bowl aside for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, drain and keep aside. If the figs are not too dry, then you do not need to blanch them.

2. When the figs are blanching, take the following dry fruits in a grinder or food processor – ¼ cup almonds, ¼ cup cashews, ¼ cup pistachios and ¼ cup walnuts.

3. Pulse the dry fruits for 3 to 4 times or more till you get them in small bits and pieces. Don’t make a powder or paste. You can also chop them finely. for saving time use a mixer or food processor. After pulsing, if you get slightly large pieces of almonds in the mixture, then remove and chop them. I rinsed the dry fruits before adding in the grinder jar. Hence there is some moisture in the ground mixture.
