  1. Chop all the nuts.
  2. Finely chop half the quantity of figs and dates.
  3. Sprinkle some water on the remaining figs and microwave for a couple of minutes.
  4. Grind the cooked figs and dates with as little water as required into as smooth a paste as you can, but don`t labour over this.
  5. Grind around half cup of the chopped nuts into a fine powder.
  6. Heat ghee in wide, non-stick pan. Once it is warm enough, add the ground date-fig mixture.
  7. Cook on medium heat, stirring often to ensure the mixture doesn`t scorch.
  8. Cook till the mixture starts leaving the sides of the pan and starts to come together.
  9. Remove from heat and add the palkova/khova and mix well.
  10. Add the nut powder a little at a time and add as much as you need to make the mixture less sticky. Knead with your hands or mix really well with a strong wooden spoon.
  11. Add chopped nuts, figs and dates and mix thoroughly.
  12. Place a portion of this mixture on a sheet of cling film or clean sheet of plastic.
  13. Form into a log around an inch and a half across.
  14. I got three logs, each around 8-9 inches long.
  15. Wrap it up well in the plastic sheet and refrigerate for a couple of hours or overnight.
  16. Cut the log into roundels of desired thickness.
  17. Keep refrigerated if you want firm pieces or keep it out if you do not mind somewhat sticky ones.
