1.The apricot kernels exactly appear like badam and the brown covering can be removed by blanching the seeds in water or soaking them and then garnish it.
2.After removing the brown skin they appear white like peeled almonds but these are smaller in size.
3.Here, in this post I did not peel the almond kernels but it can be done so...
4.The only thing necessary for this meetha is soaking the apricots and this is one of the best and two ingredient recipe...
5.To enhance the flavor one can add saffron infused water into the sweet dish while cooking...
