6 fresh apricots, peeled, pitted, sliced
1/3 cup sugar
2 cup water
1/2 tsp almond extract
2 tbsp almonds, blanched, sliced, roast lightly if you prefer
Bring the sugar and water to boil in a medium cooking pot. Turn the heat down to very medium-low. Add the apricots and almond extract in it. Cook for about 5-6 minutes.
Pour into a bowl and let it cool. Then chill in the fridge. Add almond slices. Serve in individual bowls with Pilaf on the side on hot Summer days:)
