Figs Payasam|Mithai|BM #14

I tried a payasam with dried figs today. It turned out pretty good. Frankly, it is the hot version of figs milk shake.
Ingredients
4-5 Dried figs
1 cup plain milk or coconut milk
2 spoon of sugar (optional)
1/2 tea spoon Ghee
Few cashews to garnish
                            
Method
Soak the figs in water for 1/2 hour and then grind to a smooth paste.
In a pan add the ground figs, milk and sugar and boil for 5 minutes.
In a small frying pan add the ghee and cashews and fry for a minute.
Garnish and serve hot or cold.

Still that's quite a different one..though for all the goodness fig is supposed to have, I am not able to include it regularly in our diet..
