ABOUT Qubani Ka Meetha RECIPE

Qubani ka meetha is an Indian sweet made from dried apricots originating from Hyderabad. It is a common feature at Hyderabadi weddings. Preparation of the dish involves boiling apricots with syrup until they assume the consistency of a thick soup or compote. The dessert is topped with blanched almonds or apricot kernels, and is traditionally garnished with malai (extra thick cream, ideally from buffalo milk), but also with custard or ice cream. Today I have made Qubani ka meetha by adding orange zest. I gives a nice taste to this recipe.
