Apple Raspberry Halwa


Apple Raspberry halwa is a must try delicious sweet. This was an accidental recipe..it sometimes happens in my kitchen..I started with another recipe and ended up with this one.I started with not so optimistic note and with a grim determination.....no experimenting with food in  future. To begin  with it was pale and unattractive pink.But as the cooking proceeded I was surprised and once I let the halwa set I was truly happy..But my laziness reflects in these pictures..the seeds of the raspberries. I did not puree and stain them but just dumped them along with chopped apples. Anyways hubby felt that the seeds looked cute:).




Ingredients
Apples - 4
Raspberries-  1 cup
Sugar- 2 1/2 cup
Ghee- 1/2 cup
water- 1/2 cup
evaporated milk- 1/2 cup
rice flour- 3 tbs
Cashew nuts roasted or plain- 1/3 cup
Cardamon  powder - 1/2 tsp

Dice apples into thin slices or chop them and fry them in two tsp of oil.Saute till it is cooked and get easy to mash. Add in the raspberry (pureed and strained)and cook them too this the mixture is marshy. Let it cool down completely. Bring water to a boil and add sugar and simmer till it becomes a syrup. Mix milk and rice flour together and strain it.Add in the cooked fruit puree and  milk and flour and combine. Mix ghee and stir continuously till the mixture becomes a thick mass and leaves the edges of the pan and till ghee separates. Grease a plate and pour in the mixture. Spread evenly with a spatula. Once set cut into desired shapes.

Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy..
