  • Sugar – One and half cups

  • Ghee – 3 to 4 tablespoons

  • Cashew nuts – few

  • 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.
  • In a thick bottomed kadai (preferably non-stick kadai) add one teaspoon ghee and then fry the cashew nuts on the melted ghee.
  • Now remove the fried cashews from the kadai and keep it aside.
  • In the same kadai add the remaining ghee and then add the apple pulp.
  • 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).
