Dried Figs with Milk Pudding

(Muhallebili Incir Tatlisi)

Dried Figs with Milk Pudding
250 gr dried figs
1/2 cup sugar

Milk Pudding:
1 tbsp rice flour
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 cup milk
Few drops of vanilla extract

Walnut halves for each fig

Place all the pudding ingredients in a small sauce pan and start to cook. Stir constantly over medium heat. When you see the bubbles on the surface, boil one more minute while stirring. Take it off the stove. Pour into a small bowl, let it cool down with plastic cover on it.

Meanwhile put the figs in a pot and cover them with water. Boil for about 20 minutes until they are softened over medium heat.

Drain and cut off the stalks. Place them in a pot and place the sugar on top. Add 2/3 cup water and cook for 25 minutes on medium-low heat. If necessary add a little bit more water. Leave some juice in it at about the same height as the top of the figs.

Place on a service plate. Let them cool down. Before serving the figs, put one table spoon of Milk Pudding on top of each and garnish with walnut halves.
