Fig Sooji Halwa

Fig season is almost ending. Got few figs y’day and a new idea. We make Halwa with sooji and ppl make pineapple or mango flavored. So why not fig? Also sooji absorbs so much liquid so fig with so much water I can just add it all and use up figs. Recipe is very simple.

  • Heat ghee or unsalted bitter
  • Roast sooji in it.
  • Make a purée of fresh figs.
  • Add it to roasted sooji and keep stirring . It will become dry in no time.
  • You can use 1 part sooji to 2 part fresh figs purée.
  • If needed add some sugar.
  • Garnish with cardamom powder and some nuts.
  • Halwa came out well.
  • Enjoy !

Stuffed Figs

First you need fresh figs (and don’t show up at my door 😀)

    Stuff the fig with goat cheese.
    Top it with some finely chopped walnut.
    Bake in oven for few minutes until heated through.
    Pour some honey over it.
    Important step: Make sure they are warm and not so hot . Have patience before you pop that fig in your mouth. Yeah .. speaking from experience. Or you will burn your mouth.
