Apple Halwa ~ Two ways!
Red apple - 1 cup
Sugar - 1 cup (increase if you want more sweeter taste)
Milk - 1 cup
Ghee - 2 tbsps
Cardamom Powder - a pinch
Cashew nuts - few
Orange red colour - a pinch
How to make Apple Halwa
Wash the apples and wipe it dry. Peel and remove the apple core. Chop roughly into pieces and pulse it to a fine puree.
In a non stick kadai, heat the ghee, fry the cashew nuts to golden colour. Remove and keep it aside.
Then add the apple puree, fry on low flame till the water content gets evaporated and the apple is well cooked. Add the milk, sugar, food colour and cook on high flame, keep stirring for 5 mins. Then simmer to low flame and continue cooking for 10 mins.
When the mix starts leaving on the sides, it's cooked. Add the cardamom powder, fried cashew nuts. Mix everything well and transfer it to a greased bowl.
If you cook for longer time, you will be able to cut into squares, somehow I like the loose texture.

Another method we liked was adding maida and or cashew powder along with apple puree. Cook well and then add milk. Continue as the previous method.
