Well it was not planned to make this sweet dish but suddenly Sree's friends came home for dinner... And I was not able to decide what to make for dinner... Somehow I managed with starters and main course but the big trouble was "Dessert"... At the corner of kitchen I found 3 red apples in my fruit basket and there I go "Bingo!!"... So, at last my cutie red apples saved me and I was able to surprise my unexpected guests with this unexpected sweet dish... ;)
I've mashed apples into fine paste as I was running out of time but I guess some people prefer grated ones... But I feel, it hardly makes any difference (except appearance... :D) coz at last it tastes "Super"....!!!
3 red apples, big one (use red apples as green ones can make halwa bit sour)
4 tbsp Sugar ( or add as per taste)
1/4 tsp Cardamom powder
few Almonds for garnishing
Ghee (clarified butter) - 4 - 5 tbsp
Peel and cut apples into cubes. Mash them into fine paste. Do not add water.
Heat ghee in a pan and pour the apple paste. Keep stiring until all water gets evaporated. For me, it took 15 mins (approx) as I was working with med-high flame... But if you keep stiring in med-low flame, it will take atleast 30 mins to get cooked.
