Apple Halwa

Apple Halwa


  • Red apple (big size) – 3 Nos
  • Sugar – One and half cups
  • Ghee – 3 to 4 tablespoons
  • Cardamom Powder – 1/2 teaspoon
  • Cashewnuts – few
  • Kesar Powder or Orange red colour – little


  1. Clean the apples with water and then wipe it dry. Peel the skin and remove the seeds. Cut it into medium size pieces. Put it in a mixer and grind it to a fine pulp.
  2. In a thick bottomed kadai (preferably non-stick kadai) add one teaspoon ghee and then fry the cashew nuts on the melted ghee.
  3. Now remove the fried cashews from the kadai and keep it aside.
  4. In the same kadai add the remaining ghee and then add the apple pulp.
  5. Fry it on medium flame until the water content in the pulp is evaporated and the pulp becomes slightly thick. (It will take 10 to 15 minutes).
  6. Now add sugar to the pulp and mix well. While stirring the pulp continuously add the food colour until it leaves the sides of the kadai.
  7. Now add cardamom powder and the fried cashew nuts that was prepared earlier.
  8. Finally mix everything well and transfer it to a greased bowl.

You can serve it with a spoon or cut it into squares. You will get approximately 15 pieces.

Instead of grinding the apples, you can grate it and follow the above method. The halwa will look like this:


  1. Hello Mam,

    Thanks for posting such a wonderful recipe.

    I tried this recipe, taste was so good but i am not able to make pieces. can u tell me where i did the mistake? Sugar level I reduce since the apple was very sweet… Is this the reason that I am not able to make the pieces?

    • Hi Gayathri,

      You cannot cut it like burfi. However, you can make some sort of slices. Yes. reducing the quantity of sugar make the halwa very soft and cannot cut it. You can serve it as it is and no need to cut it.

  2. Thanks for wonderful apple halwa recipe, we all really enjoyed. Want to spend more time in your website and eager to try different items.

  3. Hie Kamala, thank you for the lovely recipes. I have tried them for Diwali last year and it turned out well. Especially my favourite adhirasam and chitty orundai.

    My question is can we add water when we grind the apples or should we grind It in a dry grinder?. Thanks.
