Figs have been cultivated since ancient times and can be traced back to the earliest historical texts. They have been mentioned many times in the Bible. Native to the Middle East and Mediterranean, the fig tree is one of the oldest trees in the world. So loved were figs by the Greeks, that laws were framed to prevent their export.
Fig or anjeer has a delicious sweet taste that is unique. The raw fruit is soft and chewy and full of tiny crunchy seeds that are edible. Since the fruit is delicate, it is prone to spoilage. Therefore, figs are usually dried to be enjoyed the whole year through.
Figs contain natural sugars, minerals, and soluble fibre. They are high in minerals such as potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, and copper. They are a good source of vitamins A, E, and K – antioxidants that are essential for health and wellness. Figs are often eaten as a laxative because of their high fibre content. Fresh figs help counteract the effects of too much sodium consumption, resulting in hypertension. They are good for those watching their weight. Because of the fibre content, figs make one feel full and satiated, and reduce hunger cravings.
Dried figs are more commonly eaten in India. These are small round discs which are brown in colour, with a hole in the middle. Dried figs or anjeer are eaten as health food and enjoyed as a filling snack. They are available all year round and make ideal gifts on Diwali and other special occasions. You can use figs in baking cakes and bread such as toffee fig pies, fig and almond cakes, or fig rolls. Raw figs can be poached in wine for a great dessert. Make a Mediterranean fig and mozzarella salad or a Stilton and fig salad with honey-thyme drizzle. These will be loved by family and friends. Figs pair well with cheese. Try baked figs and goat’s cheese with radicchio, Spanish figs and almond balls, or figs and walnut slices. Dry figs can be incorporated in cooking to make desserts such as anjeer ki kheer or anjeer rabdi. Fig puree is added to reduced milk in which sugar has been added. This is cooked further and taken off the fire to cool. It is then garnished with pistachios and almonds.
Dry figs are eaten as they are or soaked in warm water -- to make them soft and pliable. The little seeds are eaten as well. They add crunch and texture that most people find irresistible. You can snack on a dry fig or pack some slices in your children’s lunch box to encourage healthy munching.
