Qubani Ka Meetha is a traditional and authentic dessert of Hyderabadi cuisine. This is prepared with the dried apricots and they are most probably served in all the festivals in Hyderabad, most commonly on weddings.
A very simple, easy and delicious dish but consumes time in the preparation. Let me share the recipe…
