Apple halwa

Ingredients: 2 cups grated apples (about 3-4 apples) 1 cup sugar 1 tbl spn ghee (this is just used for aroma, can be omitted if desired) 2 tbl spn chopped or coarsely powdered almonds 1/2 tea spn cardamom powder Method: Peel the apples and grate them. Heat ghee in a thick bottomed (or non stick) pan. Add the grated apple and fry on a medium flame, till all the water is evaporated and it looks like cooked. It takes about 10mins or so.

Now add the sugar. Actually at this step, the apple should be measured and equal volume of sugar should be added.

. mixing occasionally. you need to mix continuously. Towards the end. otherwise it sticks to bottom of the pan and gets burnt. Add the chopped or coarsely powdered almonds and mix it.Cook. till the mixture thickens and all the sugar is mixed well with apples.

mix . grease it with some ghee. . Flatten it with a rolling pin. Transfer the contents on a greased(with ghee) plate or cutting board.When it looks very dry. I just used a wax paper. add cardamom powder. To avoid sticking to rolling pin.

Cut it into squares. Makes about 15-20 halwas Preparation time : 40mins . Let it cool down a bit and then take out the pieces and press the ends to the board to get even shapes.
