This is a durable sweet that you can store at room temperature for a couple of months. Here is the khajoor dry fruits barfi which is liked not only by me but by all of my family members.

Now keep this mixture on low flame till the khajoor becomes soft.  Stir constantly to prevent it from burning. Once the khajoor mixture turns soft, remove from the flame and keep it aside till the mixture becomes warm.

When the khajoor mixture becomes warm, divide it into 3 equal portions and roll them into a cylindrical shape. Then wrap them into plastic sheets and keep it in the fridge for about an hour and allow it to set.
