  • 6 Figs fresh , halved
  • 4 tablespoon Honey divided
  • 1 Vanilla Bean optional
  • ½ cup Yogurt or Curds thick
  • 1 tablespoon Cardamom powder


  • Spoon yogurt into a fine mesh sieve and let the whey drain overnight or for a couple of hours to make hung curd. I didn't plan ahead, so I ended up draining mine for only a half hour. This made no difference to the taste.
  • Pre-heat oven to 200 degree celsius.
  • Arrange figs on a roasting pan and drizzle with 2 tablespoons honey. If using slit the vanilla bean, scrape out the seeds and toss seeds with figs.
  • Place in the oven and roast for 20 minutes.
  • Mix cardamom powder in the yogurt and let it stand for ten minutes.
  • To serve, place 2-3 figs in each bowl, spoon yogurt on top and drizzle with remaining honey and fig juices collected in the pan.
