During the Jangiri debacle, i browsed so many sites for help and Rak's Kitchen made my day. She had announced an event for the month for sweets made with fruits or veggies.
I remembered, long long ago, when we were kids, amma used to make apple halwa every birthday. I completely forgot about it over the years, she too, i suppose. Nowadays it is more of stylish dishes like 'Mysurpa' or 'Ghee ladoo'.
The moment i read about the event, the recipe that came to my mind was this halwa. It is very easy to prepare and very tasty too. I am submitting this for her event.
Apple - 2 nos
Sugar - 1/2 cup (reduce it if you like it less sweeter)
Sugarless Khoa - 5 Tablespoon
Cardamon - a pinch
Almonds - for garnish (optional)
Cook the apples with the skin (nutrients, vitamins... aaghh) until tender.
Then add sugar.The mixture will turn liquidy now.
Cook till all the moisture is absorbed.
When it is nice and thick add the khoa and cook for five minutes.
Remove from fire add the cardamon and garnish with almond flakes. Tada... it is done.
