Some of the authentic and traditional dessert in halwas are the carrot halwa, semolina halwa, banana halwa, wheat halwa etc that are very popular in India. I tryed preparing apple halwa with the same procedure but without adding milk nor condensed milk. It just taste like the same as pumpkin halwa which I had for the first time during my brother's marrage in mangalore. It is the must recipe that all should try. Its just delicious.


3 Grated Apples.

1 Cup Sugar.

1/2 Cup Rusk powder or Powdered marie biscuit.

2 tbs Ghee.

1 tsp Cardamom powder.


Dryfruits.(I used kishmish and cashew).


Wash, peel and grate the apples in a plate. Keep it aside.

Heat 1 tbs ghee and fry the grated apples till the water evaporates from it under medium heat.

Add sugar and powdered rusk and mix occasionally till the mixture turns thick.

At the time of removing from fire, add remaining ghee and fry again continuously. This makes the mixture does not stick to the bottom. Add cardamom and dryfruits at the end.

Transfer the mixture on the greased plate and flatten them.

Cut them in any shapes as you prefer.

Serve hot or cold.
