Anjeer Halwa / Fig Halwa

Anjeer are also popularly known as figs…. This halwa is made out of dried figs… I have read in a article that anjeer halwa is a Punjabi dessert… but I am not sure of it…….

Figs are very good for health as they are fat-free, sodium-free and, like other plant foods, cholesterol-free…. Another thing that I love about figs is that, they stand really good in baking….. Love to add them in baked goodies…..

This Anjeer halwa is a simple recipe that can be made quickly….. the saffron helps to enhance more flavor and richness…. Another important ingredient is the condensed milk, they taste great in this halwa…

Love to have them as a after lunch dessert and sometimes I used to have them with a scoop of ice cream, trust me it would taste great….. Another my favorite is anjeer halwa with chapatis, love them so much….

Ingredients :

Dried Figs (Anjeer) chopped into pieces – 1 cup
Boiled warm milk – ½ cup
Ghee – 2 tablespoon
Condensed Milk – ½ cup
Few Saffron strands

Procedure :

1. Soak the chopped figs in warm milk for an hour and then grind to a fine paste along with the milk.

2. Heat ghee in a vessel and add the condensed milk, Saffron, fig paste and cook on medium heat stirring continuously till it leaves the sides of the vessel.
