This dish when i first came across it was sickly sweet to me but over the years i have become accustomed to cooking it my way and omitting the meat as that's just too rich for my table, also the idea of sweet meat some how does not digest well. Apart from the fact my DH loves this dish in Ramadan, bear in mind small amounts are eaten at the time of breaking fast and i now like to have some as i suffer from low blood sugar and after a day of fasting and little of this before i have my soup is just right for the body's balance and i now see the benefit in this for our table alhamduialh.
make a sugar syrup i used 1 cup of sugar and 1 1/2 cups of water i added Cinnamon sticks, green cardamons, dried ginger and ginseng for a spicy flavour. Allow this to simmer to a thickish syrups stirring when you can. Add 1 table spoon of ghee and the fruits in the bowl allow to simmer further for 5-7Min's and allow to cool.
I some times use fresh pears or apples and change the fruits but for this one i used figs, apricots , prunes, almonds and sultans
