Shirpera is a nut-filled sweet with a texture that sits somewhere between a crumbly nougat and fudge. In Afghanistan, during celebrations such as Eid, people usually buy shirpera from specialty sweet shops called qanadis, which sell different types of sweets such as halwa, hardboiled candies, chocolates and sugared almonds called noql. Shirpera requires overnight resting for the sweet to fully set. This is one of my sister Fatema’s recipes.
