Fig is one of the fruits for which I knew the English name before I knew its Tamil name (my own mother tongue). Although I have heard the word, I never knew its meaning.Aththi Pazham is the beautiful name I have heard so many times, but never it was Fig.. Always thought of fig as an exotic item, but little did I know that it is so easily available in India.. Recently I was visiting a market and I saw a vendor have a cart full of a pinkish brown produce which looked so much like beetroot, but it was different.. My husband asked me - Do you know what that is? I was like - I am not sure. He said that is Fresh figs!! I was like wow, looks so big and so much like beetroot.. I have mostly seen and used dried ones that are much easier to get.. For this recipe also I have used the dried version only.. Figs are very nutritious and have lots of Iron in them..
