Richness personified, the Anjeer Halwa is a really striking dessert made of puréed figs, powdered almonds and milk powdered, cooked with ghee and a little bit of sugar to add to the natural sweetness of figs. The almonds and figs complement each other beautifully in flavour and texture, while the milk powder and ghee give a very luxuriant mouth-feel and flavour to this halwa. Every spoonful of this luscious dessert will be truly memorable.

Can I use wheat fl instead of almond powder.

Tarla Dalal    Hi, We have not tried using wheat flour. Also, the anjeer and almond complement each other very well so, we would suggest you use the same.
Edited after original posting.

Can I replace milk powder with Oats powder or Wheat/Nachni flour?

Tarla Dalal    Hi, The milk powder gives a luxuriant and rich mouthfeel. We haven''t tried cooking with oats powder or any other flour so, don''t know how it would turn out.

Anjeer is my favourite and i just loved this recipe to the core.. I made this recipe for the dinner at my place, and you wont believe, my few friends who dosen''t like anjeer also loved this recipe. The sugar is just perfect and the milk powder gives a slight creaminess which make it even more tasty..
