I often make this Anjeer barfi for special occasions and its absolutely delicious. With no added sugar and loaded with nuts and mildly flavoured with rose water, I can't stop myself from snacking on this delicious Anjeer barfi.... and I am sure its hard for you to resist too...
Every now and then I have to remind myself to remember that goals are important and these milestones along ones journey remind you how far you have come & goads you on to your destination with a gentle nudge to continue to tarry along despite the occasional monotony or the occasional tiredness that sets in with the routine. Some might argue that a destination is merely notional and the real deal is in the journey and I agree but I find great solace and a sense of achievement when I see these milestone markers and they remind me and how much added value there is to the journey when you decide to stick to it!!
Last year, it was my goal to get back to the world of blogging, learn to handle my camera confidently, editing my images like pro and most importantly one that often causes drama amongst us ladies -- was working on my weight loss plan. Honestly, I feel so proud of my journey so far and having said that I had also promised myself to post some new content every week in my blog.
I know I have been playing hide and seek for a while now and there are dozens of excuses to substantiate it. But nothing tops the truth that it is simple procrastination. Not wanting to make any lame excuse and eating the frog first thing in the morning, I have a delicious recipe to share with all of you.
Last week, we celebrated Ganesh puja at our home. It is usually a grand fare at my in- laws home with three consecutive days of celebrations. Our living space is cleared out and beautifully decorated with lights, flowers and the inimitable elephant head idol beloved of all. The kitchen is in full swing too with varieties of delicacies both sweet and savoury. I really miss those occasions. They fondly remind me of how important food is and it is so much more than what merely fills the belly. It is truly soul food.
Well I try to incorporate a few of those special recipes here in Australia so that my kids understand their roots and find their ways back to their origins of the cultural heritage they belong too.
Anjeer that is known as figs is one of my favourite fruit. Fresh figs are seasonal and I make the most of the their relatively short season. But it's great that they are available through out the year as dried figs. I made this barfi for this special occasion using dried figs and it was absolutely delicious. With no added sugar and loaded with nuts and mildly flavoured with rose water, I can't stop myself from snacking on it.
