Apricots belonging to the Prune family are a rich source of vitamins and minerals as well as dietary fibre.
The fruit it is believed, came to India from Central Asia via the historic Silk Route and lost no time in endearing themselves to the people here. It’s called khubani in Hindi and many other Indian languages and is relished from trans-Himalayan Ladakh to Hyderabad in the Deccan where khubani ka meetha is a signature dessert. Khubani is enjoyed both as fresh and dried fruit.
Choicest, handpicked apricots are used to make the jam and time tested traditional home recipe is followed to ensure that natural taste and goodness of the fruit remains unalloyed without adding any artificial flavor or coloring agent.
