Apple Halwa Recipe

Apple Halwa Recipe

It’s almost a year when I have started this blog. By now I’m so much in love with my little baby blog. I’m learning everyday something new. And this is my 200th post to be precise. A sweet Indian dessert Apple Halwa.

This is a quick and easy dish. You can add khoya (evaporated milk), condensed milk to the halwa to give it a rich feel. But I have not used any such ingredient. I’m using only 3 ingredients here, i.e. apple, sugar, ghee, cinnamon powder. This is a no-dairy dessert.

Cinnamon powder is optional. But the flavour of cinnamon blends nicely with that of apples. So I have added it to the dish. Also you can add cardamom powder to the halwa. Dry fruits also you are free to use as much you want to add.

This is a quick recipe that takes less than 15 – 20 minutes for whole process. You can make this for fasting recipe as well.
