Apple Halwa

Apple* - 3 big, peeled, chopped and pureed
Sugar** - 1 cup + 1 tsp
Cardamom - a pinch
Orange Food Color - a pinch soaked in a tsp of milk
Cashews - 1 tbspn, chopped
Ghee - 4 tbspns

*You can either grate it or make puree, approximately 3 cups puree
**Adjust according to the sweetness of the apple. Mine was too sweet

Heat 1 tbspn of ghee in a non stick kadai. Fry the cashews till golden brown and keep it aside. In the same pan add the remaining ghee and add in the apple puree. Fry it on medium flame until the water content in the puree is evaporated and the puree becomes slightly thick, it will take approximately 10 to 15 minutes. Now add sugar to the puree and mix well. Keep stirring the mixture and add the food color soaked in the milk. Stir until the halwa leaves the sides of the kadai and until the mixture looks glossy. Now add the cardamom powder and the fried cashews. Finally mix everything well and transfer it to a greased bowl. 
Apple Halwa is ready to serve :) :) You can serve as it is or cut into squares.
