I am sure if you have visited Hyderabad than you must have definitely tasted this popular Hyderabadi speciality dessert named Qubani Ka Meetha
Qubani ka meetha خوبانی کا میٹھا is an Indian dessert made from dried apricots originating from Hyderabad, India. It is
a common feature at Hyderabadi weddings.Khubani ka Meetha is a very popular dessert of Hyderabadi cuisine.
Khubani is Urdu word for apricot. It’s a simple yet most delicious and rich flavored dessert I had tasted.
Apricots are good source of vitamins, irons, fibre and more healthy nutrients. khubani means jardalu in marathi
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.
