Apple Halwa

The mushy sweetness of cooked apples and the crunchy nuttiness of walnuts are a made-for-each-other match. Here, this admirable duo comes to you in the form of a tasty Apple Halwa prepared with sautéed apples, mawa and milk cooked with sugar and walnuts. While this gives the perfect flavour and texture, a dash of vanilla imparts an aroma that kids cannot resist. You could prepare this as an after-school tiffin for your kids, or as an anytime treat for your whole family, but make sure you serve it within an hour or preparation after which the flavours tend to wane.

Halwa made with apple, just superb recipe, with crunchy walnuts added. Once made no one can guess its a apple. Best is to serve it warm. A must try recipe.
