1 cup grated apple

2 teaspoon Milk powder

1 teaspoon ghee

1 teaspoon powdered green cardamom

1 handful cashews

1 cup milk

1/2 cup sugar

1 handful saffron

1 handful almonds

1 handful pistachios


  • For preparing this amazing halwa, wash the apples and grate them in a bowl. To avoid discolouration, transfer the grated apples immediately in the milk.
  • Put a kadhai on low-medium flame and add ghee in it. When it starts melting, add the milk and apple mixture in it along with saffron and bring it to a boil.
  • The milk will start curdling due to the sourness of the apple. Continue stirring the mixture.
  • When the apple and milk mixture becomes dry, add sugar in it and stir continuously to avoid forming lumps.
  • When the halwa starts leaving the sides of the kadhai, add milk powder in it along with cardamom powder. Stir it continuously.
  • When the whole milk has dried up, remove it from kadai and transfer the halwa in a bowl. Garnish with dry fruits. Serve hot.
