Anjeer Mawa Burfi | Figs Khoya Burfi | Easy Diwali Sweets Recipes

Anjeer Mawa Burfi, Anjeer Khoya Burfi, Anjeer Burfi, Figs Burfi, Mava Figs Barfi we can call this burfi with so many names and this is one recipe in my wish list to post for a long time, figs or anjeer burfis are very delicious at the same time very easy to prepare. From the time I posted Dry Fruits Burfi I wanted to post this too but I made this rarely and never manage to take pictures these cuties always disappears so fast :)

Figs and khoya (mawa) binds together beautiful and in this recipe we use minimal of sugar and ghee, I have used only 1 tsp of sugar and 1/2 tsp ghee though you can adjust both to suit your needs or even skip sugar all together. This burfi has grainy texture due to mawa and figs and thus the pieces looks rustic but that's the beauty of anjeer burfi, though if we make this in large quantity then we can get smooth looking burfi to some extend.  You can check other anjeer (figs) recipes here.


This anjeer mawa burfi is also very soft to hold and eat not like other burfi to hold the shape, if you want to make nice shapes then add more of chopped dry fruits which will help to get the shape but then it becomes more of dry fruit burfi than anjeer burfi so I don't do that, I just add little of dry fruits for crunch that's all. If you look for some easy yet delicious sweet for Diwali with not lot of ghee and sugar then try this and you will like it.

Store in air tight container, stays well for 4-5 days if refrigerated.

  • You can skip the sugar if you wish or adjust to suit your taste. I added only 1 tsp of sugar.
  • You can add 1 or 2 tsp of ghee too.
  • Soak figs/anjeer well in water to reduce the cooking time, and chopped is good option instead of grinding as we get small bits of figs while eating.
  • If you are going to use frozen mawa (khoya) make sure to thaw it well for over night for a day before you use, you should be able to crumble or grate mawa easily if you thaw well.
  • You can add 1/2 tsp of cardamom powder for cardamom flavor.
  • You can garnish burfi with dessicate coconut ya sliver warq too instead of pista or you can just cut the burfi in pieces like that without any garnishing.
  • Anjeer burfi normally has rustic texture if you wish to have smooth finished burfi then add 1/2 cup of chopped nuts.
  • Double or triple the recipe if you want to make in large quantity.

Enjoy the delicious and easy burfi.
