Anjeer Barfi Recipe/How to make Anjeer Burfi
Anjeer Barfi or Dry fig burfi is a traditional sweet of India. This festive season I was not much keen on preparing some thing with too much sugar or ghee. I found a packet of dry figs in my kitchen and it immediately reminded me of my childhood days. My mom would prepare this amazing anjeer burfi for us on diwali festival. So I decided to make this nutritious sweet this time.
I usually prefer making sweets which is not high on ghee, sugar or has lengthy process. I am not that good in making sweets like moong dal sheera or bombay halwa which needs lot of ghee and stirring. This sweet is not only delicious but also treat to the eyes. My mom would often decorate it in a box and gift it to relatives and friends.
Nutritional Value of Figs
Health Benefits of Figs. Figs are high in fiber and a good source of several essential minerals, including magnesium, manganese, calcium (which promotes bone density), copper, and potassium (which helps lower blood pressure), as well as vitamins, principally K and B6.
Anjeer Barfi is my kind of sweet which is healthy and does not need any hard work. The taste of this sweet is really royal and completely out of the world. It hardly takes 15 minutes to prepare it excluding the setting time. Adding dry fruits again takes it to an another level in terms of taste and nutrition. Here dry figs/Anjeer is cooked with little ghee and mawa along with dry fruits.
Try this new Anjeer Barfi this Diwali and I am sure you are going to get lot of complements for this sweet.
