APPLE BASANTHI

This is a very delicious dessert. It is very simple to prepare! Apple makes all the difference. If the apple happens to be very sweet, then the dessert will be very tasty! Instead of thick milk, milk powder can also be mixed with water.



ஆப்பிள் பாசந்தி

Ingredients:

Big apples-2
Thick milk- 8 cups
Cardamom powder- 1 tsp
Almonds-8
Cashew nuts-10
Raisins-1 tbsp
Ghee- 2 tbsp
Sugar- ½ cup
Saffron- a pinch

Procedure:

Shred the apples finely.
Soak the almonds in hot water for 30 minutes, then peel off the skins and then cut them into thin pieces.
Fry them along with the raisins and cashew nuts in the ghee to golden brown.
Boil the milk on medium fire until it becomes half in quantity.
Then add the apple and cook for some minutes.
Now add the sugar with the saffron and cardamom and boil for some minutes.
Lastly add the fried ingredients and boil for a few seconds.
The delicious apple basanthi is ready now!!
