Fig Jam


    Dry fig (anjeer) – 4 cups, cut in small pieces

    Sugar (Cheeni) – 3 cups

    Water – 3cups

    Walnut (Akhrot) – ½ cup, chopped

    Pine nuts (Chilgoza)- ¼ cup

    Gelatin (Sares) – 1 tsp

    Sesame (Til) seeds – 2 tbsp

    Anis seed (saunf) powder – 1 tsp

    Lemon juice (Nimboo ka ras) – 1 tbsp

preparation method

In a pan, boil sugar and water, on high flame till it becomes syrup. Stir and add dry fig pieces carefully (syrup is very hot), followed by lemon juice. Boil on high flame for 5-6 minutes till it absorbs more than half the syrup.

Once the mixture thickens, add walnuts, pine nuts, anis powder, sesame seeds and mix (you can use cashew, almonds or any other nuts).

In a small saucepan, heat water. Add about 2-3 tbsp of the hot water to gelatin and mix to dissolve. Add this to the jam mixture and allow it to thicken. You can store it in a jar once it cools.
