  • 8 dried figs, chopped finely
  • 1/2 apple, chopped finely
  • 1 cup strong tea (made from 2 tea bags, fruit infusions or any other)
  • 2 tbsp yogurt or 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup sugar, coarsely ground
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup sunflower oil
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp poppy seeds (the dark variety)

  • 3/4 cup Atta (whole wheat flour)
  • 1/4 cup Makkai ka atta (corn meal)
  • 1 tsp baking powder

Cooking Instructions

Preheat oven at 200 C. Line a 12 muffin pan with paper liners or oil them well.

In a large bowl, beat the yogurt (or egg) along with sugar and salt well.

Whisk the oil into this. Add the milk and mix in the poppy seeds.

Sieve the flours with the baking powder and soda a couple of times.

Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until just incorporated. Do not over-mix or beat this.

Add the soaked fruits and the half cup of tea that will remain behind.

Spoon the batter into the liners until 3/4th filled.

Bake at 200 C for 20-25 minutes. Test with a knitting needle / spaghetti if the centers are done. If not bake for 3-4 minutes and check again.

Remove the muffins and eat warm.
