QUBANI KA MEETHA

This South Indian sweet is essentially made of dried apricots and Hyderabadi weddings are big on these. The perfect way to serve qubani ka meetha would be to top them with thick malai or silver varq. If you want to save a couple of bucks, do without the varq and add vanilla ice cream instead. Not to mention, all those apricot anti-oxidants should save you from the guilt-trip you’re on!

Places to try:

Utsav, 2nd Floor Jyothi Elegance, Road No.36, Phase 1, Kavuri Hills, Jubilee Hills, Hyderabad, Telangana 500033
> The Pariwar Dhaba, 6-4-8, R R Dist, Airport Rd, Shivram Pally, Hyderabad, Telangana 500077
> Paradise, 484, Signature Square, CMH Road, Indiranagar, Bengaluru, Karnataka 560038

DOUBLE KA MEETHA / SHAHI TUKDA

Another Hyderabadi sweet, this South Indian bread pudding has its roots in Mughlai cuisine. As the name ‘Shahi’ suggests, it would make your wedding platter royalty-worthy. Comprising of bread and rich milk with dry fruits or kesar (saffron), double ka meetha/shahi tukda is a dessert fit for a king or queen, we’d say! And who doesn’t want to feel royal on their big day. ☺
