Anjir in india means Figs and Rabdi is like pudding, thick in consistency made of milk and sugar after simmering it for hours. Rabdi could be simple milk rabdi or if we add something like may be dates or dried figs it becomes Fig Rabdi or dates rabdi or both dried figs and dates can be used together.
I love this recipe of rabdi with dry figs and it is awesome. This is our family favorite dessert. As we know dried figs can be substituted for the natural alternative of sugar.It contains sugars, vitamin B6 , minerals and fiber.

Serves 2

  • 5 to 6 pieces Dried Figs
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 6 cups Milk
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons Non-dairy creamer (optional)
  • 6 tablespoons Sugar
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1/2 cup Pitachios
  1. Keep the whole dried figs in warm water and wash away the dirt and let them sit in water for half an hour to one hour so that they soften a little bit. Then, once they are soften we can make coarse puree of the figs with little bit of milk.
  2. Take the 6 cups of milk and let it simmer over the stove for about an hour or so , or till the milk reduces almost to half of the quantity. keep watch on it. Keep stirring it occasionally. After half an hour or so , add sugar and dissolve non-dairy creamer (optional) in some warm milk and then add it to the simmering milk. Cook it until it it thick in consistency and it will start having some creamy texture. Then add the figs puree to it keep mixing it well till the puree is all mixed well. Add walnuts and pistachios. It is ready to have it hot off the stove or tastes very good cold also.
