In a bowl, soak the chopped figs in warm water for 2-3 hours until they are soft. Now drain the water and put the chopped figs in a mixer. Blend them until they become a smooth paste.
Take a pan and add ghee to it. When it’s hot, add the figs paste and cook it for 7-8 minutes, or until it starts to leave the sides of the pan.
Now add khoya to the cooked figs paste and mix. Make sure all the ingredients are combined and cook for another 5 minutes.
Add sugar to the anjeer halwa as per your taste levels. You can also add jaggery or brown sugar instead. Keep cooking this until the halwa thickens and has a uniform texture.
Top the halwa with cardamom powder, chopped nuts – almonds, cashews, raisins, walnuts - and saffron strands to add extra flavour. Mix well for another 2-3 minutes. After the halwa thickens, garnish it with additional nuts and switch off the burner. And voila! Your anjeer halwa is ready to serve!
