Khubani Ka Meetha and An Award

Khubani ka meetha is an authentic Hyderabadi  dessert. It is prepared with apricots and sugar.
It is a must dessert in hyderabadi weddings.Usually it is served with custard or cream. The kernel in the apricots is used in the preparation of almond essence as its taste is similar to Almonds.Actual recipe is of thick consistency as shown in the above snap but i like to have the Khubani ka meetha in the below form.(Oil free Jamuns)

Dried Apricots – 1 cup
Water – 1 ¼ cup
Sugar – 4 tbsp
Cardamom Powder – a pinch

1) Wash and soak the apricots in water overnight.
2) Remove the seeds from the apricots.Crack open the seeds to remove the kernels.
3) Blanch the kernels and keep it aside to garnish the dessert.

4) Boil the apricots with the same water in which it was soaked overnight.
5) When it starts to boil add the sugar and cook till the sugar dissolves.Add a pinch of cardamom powder and mix well.
6) Cook the apricots on low flame till you get a thick consistency.
7)Garnish the apricots kernels.
