khajur pak recipekhajur pak recipe | khajoor pak recipe | dates pak recipe with step by step photo and video recipe. dates or khajur recipes are very popular recipes when it comes to no sugar recipes. there are many easy desserts derived out of dates and are mixed with other dry fruits or seeds to make ladoo, bar or barfi. one such variety is the popular middle eastern-influenced khajur pak recipe mixed with khoya/mawa with dates.

i have posted quite a few dates or khajur recipes till now, but i personally feel this recipe of khajur pak is much easier and simpler compared to all. the basic reason is the use of mawa or khoya in this recipe. mawa comes with the binding agent inbuilt and hence it makes life easier to shape and set this recipe. in all my other recipes, i have added either jaggery or rolled oats. to be honest, it is not a cumbersome process to add these yet adding mawa makes it more comfortable. in addition to that adding mawa makes it moist and also flavourful compared to other dates dessert recipe.

furthermore, i would like to add some more tips, suggestions and variations to the khajur pak recipe. firstly, i have used moist and seedless dates which are perfect for this pak recipe. avoid using the dry dates as it might be difficult to mix it with mawa or khoya and eventually shaping it. secondly, adding mawa adds the desired amount of sweetness to this khajoor pak recipe. but you may add the desired amount of sugar to make it, even more, sweeter as per the taste. lastly, adding mawa would reduce the shelf life as it may attract moisture and spoil soon. but storing it in the airtight container would improve the shelf life drastically.
