Two remarkable burfi preparations at Kanti Sweets, a sweet house in Bangalore, defy all traditional conceptions of Indian sweets! It is difficult for most people to imagine an Indian sweet that is not made of milk, ghee (clarified butter), khoya (dried milk), and sugar. The Khajoor Burfi and the Anjeer Burfi of Kanti Sweets are however a pleasant and delicious surprise! Khajoor Burfis are made from dates while the Anjeer Burfis are made from figs. Both burfis contain generous quantities of whole dry nuts as well. Since dates and figs are naturally sweet, sugar or any other sweetener is not added to either of the two preparations.
Originally conceptualized for people with diabetes, both sweets have become a Vegan delight. Besides being nutritious, the burfis are very tasty and go exceedingly well with a steaming cup of herbal tea! And what’s more, you can store them without refrigeration for days together as they do not spoil easily. They do not spoil because they contain zero animal-derived ingredients.
Khajoor Burfi: Rs.300/- per kilogram
Anjeer Burfi: Rs.550/- per kilogram

milk has become a point of controversy among doctors and nutritionists.
