Apple Halwa

>> Monday, July 19, 2010

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

Method :

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.
By this time, the paste will be thick and almost cooked. Now add cardamon powder, sugar and mix well. Keep stiring for some more time until desired consistency is attained. Garnish with almonds.
Tasty and yummy halwa is ready to serve!!

This entry is on the way to the event Celebrate Sweets ~ Halwa hosted by Nivedita.
