Khubani Ka Meetha

Made with apricots and sugar, this dessert hails from Hyderabad and is often used in combination with Vanilla ice cream. Khubani/Qubani means apricots in Urdu.
I ate one of the best in a restaurant called ' Waterfront' on Necklace Road in Hyderabad. Very well made with just the right amount of sweetness...That was the best. This is a try to mimic that.

1 box Turkish Apricots; I got them in Fresh Market. They are dark brown unlike the regular ones which are golden yellow in color
1 cup fine sugar
1/2 - 1 cup of water
1 tsp cardamom powder
1/4 cup blanched almonds
  • Soak the Apricots in water overnight.
  • Heat a pan and place the soaked apricots in the pan
  • Stir in the sugar and add half a cup of water and cook until it is saucy, about 20 min.
  • Stir the mixture occasionally
  • Add more water as necessary just to make it similar to tamarind pulp, Don't add water if it is of the right consistency
  • Add the Cardamon powder and mix in the blanched almonds
  • Cool it down
  • Serve it over a scoop of cold vanilla ice cream
