Author : Jolly Makkar
Total Time : 30 minutes
Preparation Time : 10 minutes
Cooking Time : 20 minutes
Servings : 2 person
Cuisine : Indian Pudding
Recipe adapted from Veenasvegnation 

Ingredients :

Medium sized Apple(with its juice content)/ Seb - 2 nos 
Almonds/Badam - 1/4 cup 
Milk Powder - 3 tbsp 
Sugar/Cheeni - 1/2 cup
Cardamom Powder/ Eliachi powder- 2 pods
Desi Ghee/ Clarified butter - 2 tbsp 
Milk - 1 tbsp
Chopped almonds for garnishing - 5 nos

Preparation Method :

1. Soak the almonds in lukewarm water for 30 minutes. Remove the skin and grind it into paste with just enough water. Keep it aside.

2. Remove the skin of the apple, core it and grate it finely. On the actual recipe, she squeezed all the juice from grated apples, but I didn't remove the juices from it.

3. Heat the ghee in a pan on a low heat, add the grated apple and saute it till the moisture is completely absorbed.

4. Now add the ground almond paste and sugar to this and mix well. Continue to cook in low flame for another 5 minutes, stirring well.

5. Now add milk powder and I have used my hand mortar for fresh cardamom powder (you can use grounded powder also) and mix well, cook in low flame till everything comes together and with a slush like texture.

6. At this point, add 1 tbsp of milk and mix well and switch off the fire, transfer this to the serving bowl, top with sliced almonds and serve warm.

**Important Note

1. If your apple is sweet, you can adjust the sweetness according to it with 1/4 cup, if your apple is little and sweet and sour then try to adjust it according to your sweetness. Mine is the second one, sweet and sour so I have used 1/2 cup of sugar. If your apple is totally sour, better don't use it because it spoils your halwa.
