  • Sugar-150gm or to taste
  • Warm water

  1. Wash and soak apricots in hot water for 20 minutes.
  2. Deseed the apricots and crack open the kernels using a nut cracker and soak the nuts in a cup of water to loosen their skin. (If using pitted apricots, completely omit this process and proceed to next step).

  5. Add sugar to the pureed apricots and cook stirring continuously till you get a thick paste (jam consistency).
  6. Garnish with the peeled apricot nuts or blanched almonds.
