Put the figs and chilies in a mixing bowl.
Blanch the mint leaves in boiling water for 1 minute. Cool in ice water, drain, squeeze dry, and finely chop. Add the mint leaves to the figs and chilies.
Add the onion, orange-flower water, salted lemon, lime juice, salt, and pepper to the mixture. Stir well, and let everything sit for 1 hour before serving.
