Dried anjeer is truly delicious even when eaten by itself. Here is a recipe of a scrumptious anjeer halwa that uses loads of almonds. Milk powder is used in this recipe improving its texture and adding a unique flavour. Adjust the sugar content based on the sweetness of the figs and the milk powder used.
