"I wish a many more happy returns and funfilled year ahead +Shama Nagarajan  "

Today's post is dedicated to you +Shama Nagarajan  :) This is an delicious sweet i selected from shama's blog to surprise her on her  b'day :) 

Apple halwa is an delicious and yummy sweet which can be prepared for any occasion and enjoyed :) Here is my version of apple halwa which i made for Shama from her blog Do check her version here  :) . A sweet recipe made of fiber-rich apples, this fruity delight is truly irresistible.


Apples - 2

Milk - 1 cup
Non fat Milk pd - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 4 Tbsp
Ghee - 1 1/2 Tbsp
Almonds and Cashews - to garnish
Turmeric powder/ Orange yellow color - a pinch for color (optional)


  • Heat Ghee in a kadai and saute the grated apple in ghee for few minutes.
  • Add milk pd,sugar and milk  , stir well and cook till the milk is totally absorbed. The halwa should not stick to kadai any more and leave ghee .
  •  Heat a small amount of ghee in separate a pan fry cashews,almond and elachi till they get roasted.
  •  Finally add them to halwa and mix them. 
  • You can add khoya instead of milk pd .
  • I prefer adding the dry fruits by separately frying them and adding in halwa  to retain the crunchiness in the nuts  and also for an extra flavor :) 

Once again wishing you a very happy b'day shama :) Enjoy :)
