Apple Halwa Recipe – Apple Pudding
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 gluten-free dessert.
The only dairy product used in this apple halwa is ghee or clarified butter. In order to make this complete vegan, make this with vegan butter.
Cinnamon powder is optional. But the flavor 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. You can also add little semolina to make semolina apple halwa or keep it purely apple halwa.
This is a quick recipe that takes less than 15 minutes for the whole process. You can make this for a fasting recipe as well.
How To Make Apple Halwa (With Step-by-step instructions)?
Wash and clean apples. Scrape out the outer skin of it. Or you can leave it as it is. Remove seeds from inner sides.
Grate it with help of a grater.
Heat ghee in a pan and fry dry fruits first. Remove them and keep aside for further use.
Now add grated apple and saute for 5 – 7 minutes stirring in between.
If required add some more ghee on it. Keep sauteing till its soft and cooked well.
Now add cinnamon powder, cardamom powder, sugar.
Sugar will melt in heat and cook till it’s absorbed with halwa.
Add fried dry fruits and garnish with some more dry fruits.
Serve hot or chilled as per taste.
