Qubani Ka Meetha / Sweetened Apricot

Qubani ka Meetha is a very popular dessert in Hyderabadi cuisine. It is a common feature at Hyderabadi weddings. My hubby loves this dessert and I often make this simple and delicious delicacy at home. Try this; I am sure you will love it.

Qubani Ka Meetha / Sweetened Apricot

Ingredients:
Qubani (Dried Apricots)-250gm
Sugar-150gm or to taste
Warm water
Blanched almonds (Badam) to garnish (optional only if using pitted Apricots)
Whipped cream/ Vanilla Ice Cream / Custard for serving


Method:
  • Wash and soak apricots in hot water for 20 minutes.
  • Deseed the apricots and crack open the kernels using a nut cracker and soak the nuts in a cup of water to loosen their skin. (If using pitted apricots, completely omit this process and proceed to next step).
  • Pressure cook the apricot with the soaking liquid to make them soft and tender.
  • Once the apricots are cool blend to a smooth puree and strain.
  • Add sugar to the pureed apricots and cook stirring continuously till you get a thick paste (jam consistency).
  • Garnish with the peeled apricot nuts or blanched almonds.
  • Served chilled with whipped cream or custard or with a dollop of vanilla ice cream.
  • Enjoy!

Wishing you all and your family a Very Happy Diwali & Prosperous New Year!!! May this year brings you lots and lots of happiness in life and fulfill all your dreams! :)
