A land that is famous for dry fruits, Hyderabadi cuisine makes generous use of dry fruits in gravies, rice dishes and sweets. Khubani Halwa is one such mithai made with apricots, laced with Indian spices like cardamom and saffron.
A garnish of chopped nuts adds to the charm of this tasty sweet. The pleasant aroma and natural sweetness of apricots, punctuated by the myriad flavours and textures of the dry fruits makes the Khubani Halwa absolutely heavenly.
