Equal quantities of dried apricots and sultanas
Melted butter – 1tbs
beef stock or usual water – 2tbs
Wash and dry the apricots and sultanas. Half the apricots.
Put them in a pan, add the butter and stock. Put the lid on and leave to cook on low heat. Important: do not fry. If you see that the stock is fully absorbed, add another spoonful of stock. Stew the dried fruit on low heat for approximately 30-45 minutes. The dried fruit will grow in size by absorbing not only the stock but also the butter. They will look like jade beads.
Make plov as described here.
Serve the dried fruit on a plate separately from rice. They should be eaten with the plov.
Nush olsun! Bon appetite!
