Apple Payasam/Apple Kheer

I had never tried out a payasam with a fruit. Few days back, I made the apple payasam by using chopped apples and without making a puree. So the consistency didn't turn out thick. Then I realized that I can make a puree of  the apples and get a payasam like consistency. I tried this method and it turned out great. Its a simple recipe and you can utilize the left over apples this way. Enjoy this delicious payasam.

Check out my other payasam recipes:
4 minutes Oats payasam, Cracked Wheat payasam



What you need?

2 Apples
1/2 cup Coconut milk
3/4 cup Jaggery
1/4 tsp Cardamom powder
1 tbsp chopped Dates
1/2 tbsp sweetened Cranberries
Ghee
Water

How to prepare?

Peel the skin of the apples. Chop them into small cubes. In a pan, add about 1/2 cup water and the chopped apples. When the water boils, reduce the flame,  cover and cook the apples. Stir in between. This may take a few minutes. Apples will become soft once cooked. Keep aside the cooked apple and let it cool. Once cooled, put them in a blender and make a puree of it. 

Put the apple puree and coconut milk in a pan. Add water if necessary to get the consistency you desire. Cook on a medium flame. When it starts to boil, add the jaggery and it will melt soon. Now add the cardamom powder and sprinkle some ghee if you desire. Mix well and the apple pudding is ready. Garnish with dates and cranberries.Serve warm or chilled.

Serves 2-3

Notes:
*Add some chopped apples in the end to get a crunchy effect.
*You can garnish with cashews and raisins.
