Total Time : 8 Hr 15 Min


Serves : 4
  • 200 gms dried apricots, pitted

  • 1 tbsp sugar

  • 1/2 tsp lime juice

  • 1 pinch salt

  • 1/4 tsp cardamom powder

  • 1 tsp kewra / rose water

  • 1 tbsp chopped almonds

  • 1 tsp chopped pistachios

  • 1 pinch saffron

  • 2 tbsp chopped nuts to garnish

  • 1 tbsp few pomegranate pearls to garnish (opt)

  • 2-3 tbsp hung yoghurt


  • Soak the apricots overnight in 1 cup water. Pressure cook in the same water it was soaked for 2-3 whistles. This way the cooking time is less.
  • Transfer the contents to a pan and simmer till all the water has dried up. Keep mashing the apricots with the ladle or with a potato masher.
  • Add the sugar (you may add more depending on individual preference), cardamom powder, chopped almonds, lime juice, salt, pistachios and kewra water.
  • Mix everything well and simmer for 1-2 minutes. Switch off the flame and add the saffron. Mix and keep it aside to cool.
  • Refrigerate for some time and serve with a topping of some hung yogurt (to balance the sweetness), chopped nuts and pomegranate pearls.
