Anjeer Halwa Recipe or the Dried Fig Halwa Recipe.
An easy and tasty dessert which is not only easy to make, but nutritious as well. This is the kind of dessert that will leave you satisfied and without any guilt.
Are you kids one of those that love the dried fig or do you think of different ways to incorporate this nutrient dense and tasty dried figs, or otherwise known as Anjeer in Hindi and Urdu, into their diets.
If you are like me, whose one kid loves the dried fig as it is, and the other two don’t and simply frown at the name of the anjeer, worry not. Make this anjeer halwa recipe for an amazing twist to the dessert with health.
So what if you still unsure that kids wouldn’t like the halwa and it might go waste after making it. Simple, mix this in a glass of milk and make an amazing anjeer milk shake.
Cool, isn’t it? Now you have no excuse not to make this anjeer halwa recipe.
The amount of sugar added is purely optional, if you want you can totally omit it too as the anjeer or the dried fig is sweet by itself.
As my hubby dearest likes his sweets to be really “sweet” I have added half a cup of sugar. If you are health conscious you can totally leave out the sugar.
While not much is known about this amazing anjeer halwa unlike it’s more famous Indian counterparts like the kheer, kesari, or gulab jamun, this is one dessert you should be feeding your kids.
I generally add the pistachios too. But as I didn’t have it in my pantry when I made this, I decided to go ahead with the other nuts which included the almonds and cashews.
You can even add some walnuts too.
Spices such as cardamom give it that required warmth and are delicious in Indian desserts. And hence I have added a couple of cardamoms in my anjeer halwa recipe.
You can even try the anjeer halwa recipe with khoya instead of the milk powder. But even the milk powder gives that rich flavor that tastes just so awesome.

Anjeer Halwa Recipe, Dried Fig Halwa recipe
- 500 gms dried figs / anjeer
- 2 tbsp ghee / clarified butter
- 1 cup nuts of your choice
- 1 cup milk powder
- 2 - 3 cardamom
- Soak the dried figs or the anjeer in hot water for atleast half an hour.
- Chop them to pieces and grind them in the food processor to make a coarse mixture. Do not skip the chopping, the anjeer wouldn't grind and the processor would trouble you. Alternatively you can even grind it in a mixer grinder but I personally like the coarse mixture rather than like a puree.
- Chop the nuts finely or alternatively pass them through the food processor. (Yes, I love my food processor to the core)
- Heat oil in a non stick pan. Add the nuts and fry till lightly golden brown in color.
- Add the milk powder now and add some water to prevent it from burning.
- Quickly add the anjeer mixture and keep stirring until all the water has dried up from the halwa.
- Garnish with nuts, and serve warm or at room temperature
