Apple Kheer

A friend is visiting us this weekend and I was so confused this evening about the whole menu thing. Loads of recipes were dancing in the head but I didn't know what to start with, so just peeped into my refrigerator and came up with a yummy recipe for today: Apple Kheer

If you also have enough milk and apples resting in your fridge, just give the recipe a try. Apple Kheer is just a matter of 15 minutes. And the best part is that 'Apple Kheer' can be made in a microwave too. :)


2 China Fuji Apples (peeled and grated), 500ml milk, Custard Powder - Vanilla(optional), cardamom powder, saffron strands, sugar, almonds.

Take 500 ml milk and boil it. In a small cup, take some cold milk and add 1-2 tablespoons custard powder to it and mix well. Add this mixture to the boiling milk and add the grated Fuji Apples to it. Do not use any other variety of apple else its sour juice can curdle the milk. Add cardamom powder, saffron strands, and sugar to it. Take a boil and simmer for 5 minutes with continuous stirring. Allow it to cool. Refrigerate overnight or for 5-6 hours and serve chilled. Dress with almonds.
You can also make this in a microwave. Add milk, custard powder, grated apple, saffron strands and microwave for 10 minutes with occasional stirring in every 3 minutes. Add sugar and cardamom powder and reheat for 5 minutes. Refrigerate overnight or for 5-6 hours and serve chilled. Dress with almonds. Be sure that you use a big microwave bowl which is only half-filled so that the milk doesn't spill out on boiling.
Note: If you use any other variant of apple, then add this apple towards the end when the sweetened custard milk cools down and don't boil again. Also, you can make 'Apple Kheer' without adding custard powder to it.
