|2 tsp||Rosewater, (or to taste)|
|¼ cup||Pistachio nuts, (roasted and roughly chopped)|
|1 garnish||Halva, (available from Middle Eastern food stores)|
|1 to serve||Cream|
- Preheat oven to 200 degC. Grease a baking dish. Slice the figs and arrange in the dish. Drizzle with honey and rosewater then bake for 20 minutes or until they begin to colour and caramelise.
- Serve the figs sprinkled with pistachios, crumbled halva and softly whipped cream.
CHEF'S TIP Buy your figs only 2-3 days before using. They are very perishable - look for plump, soft figs with firm stems that smell mildly sweet. If not using straight away, keep in the fridge.
