Khubani Ka Meetha (Apricot Delight)

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 45 mins

This has been my favorite dessert since childhood and I would polish off half of the whole pot every time mom made it. Use the whole, brown, non-sulfured variety of apricots and not the bright orange California dried apricots that you get at the local grocer's or the taste will vary. The quantity of sugar I have given is approximate. You may adjust according to your taste. Prep. time does not include time for soaking.


  1. Wash the apricots and soak in water for 5-6 hours or overnight.
  2. De-seed the apricots, chop and place in a pan along with the liquid and the sugar.
  3. Cook over medium heat, till sugar dissolves and the mixture becomes pulpy and blended.
  4. Transfer into a serving dish.
  5. Serve hot or cold with custard or ice cream.

Was torn between using our own 'California' dried apricots & the other ones, but finally decided to follow the recipe & used the unsulfured fruit, & am so happy that I did, because the flavor really came through & the sauce was just great over some frozen vanilla yogurt!
