Wash the apples and wipe it. Peel the skin and remove the seeds. Cut it into medium size pieces. Put it in a mixie and grind it to a fine pulp.
In a thick bottomed kadai (preferably non-stick kadai) put one teaspoon ghee and fry the cashew nuts. Remove and keep it aside. Same kadai put the remaining ghee and add the apple pulp. Fry it on medium flame till the water content in the pulp is evaporated and it becomes slightly thick. (It will take 10 to 15 minutes). Add sugar and mix well. Add food colour and stir it continuously till it leaves the sides of the kadai. Add cardamom powder and fried cashew nuts. Mix everything well and transfer it to a greased bowl.
Note: Instead of grinding the apples, you can grate it and follow the above method. The halwa will look like this:
