Khubani Ka Meetha or Qubani ka Meetha| Apricot Recipes

Qubani ka meetha or you can say khubani ka
meetha is an Indian dessert which prepared from dried apricots and comes from Hyderabadi
cuisine. It’s a traditional recipe which very popular in Hyderabadi weddings.
For this recipe, we have to boil the soaked
apricots with syrup until they assume the consistency of thick compote or puree
form. This dessert is garnished with slivered almonds and served with small
scoop of vanilla ice-cream or whipped cream whatever you like.
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. In this recipe, I prefer
to use golden Turkish apricots which gives bright and vibrant color to dessert.

Guessing Game…. Dove

When I was a
child, sometimes I used my mom’s stuff and because of her fear… I did every
notorious activity, when she went out. Whenever mom came back before time, she
started yelling on me when she entered her room. I tried to drape her saree,
use lipsticks, bindis, nail paints, jewellery, bangles and more stuff. During
that time, we had no camera at home but those images are still clear in my
mind. Now I know that she was smiling inside but always scolded me because of
wasting and destroying her makeup and accessories.
I
want to share one more moment of my teenage also. Manisha and I were good
buddies. We shared every good and bad moment with each other. We took admission
in girl’s college and attended the fresher party which was organised by our
seniors. That day we did lots of masti with other freshers and acted as if we
were seniors. Every one interacted with us as we were also seniors. But during
the party when the actual seniors announced the intro section where everyone
had to give a small introduction about themselves like schooling, background
and why they joined this college the other juniors came to know that we were
also freshers like them. We thought that they would be angry on us but they
were very cool about it. No one felt bad and became our good friends for the
next three years. I will never forget both these moments and they will stay in
my mind throughout my life.

I
did many more of these silly mistakes in my life which have become great and
beautiful memories with friends.  Today I feel glad to have loads of wonderful and
joyful memories in my life.
