I've always had an affinity for Anjeer, be it in a fresh form or in dry form. The fresh Anjeer is such a delicate & luscious fruit, easily bruised and one cannot store it for too long. In such cases the dry Anjeer comes to the rescue, ever so delicious and with all the nutrients in it's grip.
Here's a quick Anjeer milk shake that i make often, be it summer or winter. (Pssst. if it is winter time I just microwave it for a few seconds so that I can enjoy it without the chills :-) )
10 dried Figs
2 cups milk
2 pinches cardamom pwd (optional)
Sugar as per taste ( I do not feel the need to add sugar)
Soak the figs in a cup of milk for couple of hours. Add 1 more cup milk and blend at high speed to get a nice froth. Add sugar if required. Serve in tall glass and garnish with cardamom pwd.
