Q - Qubani Ka Meetha

Qubani ka Meetha is a sweet dish that is very famous in Hyderabad.
Qubani is Apricot, dry apricots are soaked and cooked. If you have the apricots seeds, they are used. If not, add some almonds. Top it off with Ice cream and serve it.
I ate this sweet several times in Hyderabad but for some reason never made it until now for the BM. I was looking at Vahchef's video so I recipe correct. Everyone in the family loved it.

Preparation Time: 5 minutes 
Soaking Time: 8 hours or overnight 
Cook Time: 30 minutes 
Serves : 4-6


Dry Apricots: 2 cups
Sugar : 1 cup
Almonds : 10 chopped 


Wash and rinse the apricots. Soak them by adding enough water to cover all the fruits.
If you have seeds in yours, deseed them, keep the almond like nut and throwaway the hard shell.
Add one cup of strained water in a pan along with the soaked apricots, mash them a little and cook for 25 minutes stirring occasionally.
Add sugar and cook for 5 more minutes.
Now mash up the apricots a little more with a spatula to give a better texture.

Let it cool a little bit and reach warm temperature.
Take a bowl, add 2 tablespoons of quabani, add the crushed apricot seeds if you have any, almonds and top it off with 2 scoops of ice cream to Serve.
