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….
