1 cup Dry Figs (anjeer),chopped
1/2 cup milk powder
2 tbsp milk ( to bind)
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp finely chopped pista
10 pieces Almonds ,blanched,halved--for garnishing
Heat a thick bottomed pan on a medium heat, add dates , figs, milk powder , milk and sugar in it and mix till it leaves a pink color and the mixture starts to bind.It may take 10-12 minutes.
Now remove this mixture into a bowl , and set it cool at room temperature,then put it in the fridge for 1 to 2 hours.
Now, add pista to the set mixture and and mix it again.Divide the mixture into equal sized portions and shape them like a walnut sized balls/laddu’s.
Decorate each laddu with sliced almonds and serve.
