Recipe For Apple Halva

Preparation time: 15 minutes.
Cooking time : 30-35 minutes (in medium flame)
Serves : 1


  • Grated apple - 1 cup (fuji apple, hard ones)
  • Milk - 1 cup
  • Milk powder - 2 tsp
  • Sugar - 1/2  cup
  • Pure ghee - 1 tsp
  • Saffron - few strands
  • Cardamom powder
  • Food colour as per your choice
  • Dry fruits for garnishing


  1. Wash and grate the apple, transfer the same immediately in the milk to avoid discoloration of the apple.
  2. In a kadai, add the ghee, milk and apple, food colour, saffron and boil.
  3. The milk will start curdling due to the sourness of the apple. continue stirring. 
  4. When the mix becomes dry, add the sugar, stir continuously.
  5. When the halwa starts leaving the sides of the kadai, add milk powder, cardamom powder and stir.
  6. When it is done, remove from the kadai and transfer in a bowl. Garnish with dry fruits.

  • Instead of using sugar, add 2 tsp of sugar free sweetener when the mixer starts leaving the kadai. Do not use milk powder in this case.
