The arrival of fall is a reminder to enjoy the warm days before the winter kicks in but for Indians, fall is also the time we prep ourselves for the festive season – Ganesh Chaturthi, Krishna Janmashtami (Solar Calendar), Diwali and Vijayadashami 🙂
The major part of any festival is the mouth watering dishes you get to gorge on 🙂
I visited my family during summer and had the best of the time possible. It’s quite a challenge to get back to the routine after a super fun vacation!
It took a while for me to get back to my blog and here I am updating the delicacy I made for Ganesh Chaturthi – Apricot Pudding. This recipe needs just 2 ingredients!
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 15-20 minutes
Serves: 3 to 4
Dried apricots: 20-25
Sweetened Condensed milk – 1 tin can – 14 OZ
Ghee – 1 to 2 tbsp
Mixed dry fruits – for garnishing
In a cup of water, cook the apricots till soft.
Once done, allow it to cool down completely.
Blend the cooked apricots to a fine paste by adding 1/2 cup water if needed.
In a wide bottomed pan, add the sweetened condensed milk and apricot paste. Mix well.
Cook on a medium flame for about 15 minutes by stirring continuously and adding ghee at intervals.
Cook till you get pudding or halwa consistency.
Once done, garnish with dry fruits fried in ghee (I used raisins and cashews).
Serve warm and Enjoy!
