My son loves fruits. Apple is among his favorites. When I came across this website, I was motivated to make Apple Kheer. However I had neither apple butter nor applesauce at home. So I referred to this website, combined the two recipes and came up with the following recipe. The result was not too bad. Also, I had just one apple at home. If you want a stronger apple flavor, you could try using 1 and 1/2, adjusting sugar accordingly.
1 apple, grated.
2 cups milk
1/2 cup condensed milk
3 to 4 tbsp brown sugar (as per taste)
1 pinch cardamom powder
1 pinch nutmeg powder
A few strands of saffron
1 pinch salt
1 tsp ghee
2 tsps cashewnut pieces
Microwave the grated apple in a microwave safe bowl for 3 mts on high. Allow to cool. Take half the quantity and blend with a few spoons of milk to form a paste.
Mix remaining milk, condensed milk and sugar and microwave on high for 5minutes (keep stirring). Add saffron strands, grated apple, apple paste and microwave for another 2 minutes.
Remove from microwave, add cardamom, nutmeg and salt and mix well.
In a small microwave safe bowl mix 1 tsp ghee with the cashewnuts and microwave for 1 minute. Pour on the kheer. Refrigerate and serve chilled.
