Apple Halwa

Hi friends, Howdy all?

Hmm... its been a while I have posted.... suddenly became too busy with Thaswika and Facebook;) These facebook games are making me crazy ;)

I hate apples, so tried to eat in a different way .... thought not to waste them. Only thing, select good red apples so that it will be sweet. One or two apples were green for me, so it was little bit sour. So moving on to the recipe........

Ingredients:
Apples - 5, red big ones
Sugar - 4-5 tablespoons (add more if you are sweet lovers;))
Cardamom powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Cashew nuts - few for garnishing
Ghee - 1/2 cup (Be generous if you love it;))

Method:
Peel, deseed the apples and cut into small cubes.

Mash them to a fine paste in a mixer without water.

Heat a non-stick pan and pour into it. Keep stirring for 30-40 minutes, until it becomes thick and cooked.

Once all water evaporates, add sugar, cardamom powder and mix well. Keep stirring for another 20 minutes, until it becomes thick.

Heat ghee in a small pan and fry cashews in it to golden brown.

Add the mixture to the halwa and stir well.

Tasty apple halwa is ready to serve.


Cooking time : 60-75 minutes
Serves 4-6 persons
