Apple Kheer

For today's 'fruit' based recipe, here is a very yummy dessert based on apple and it involves a simple preparation. I am sure that anyone with a sweet tooth would enjoy this treat, irrespective of their age. Any variety of apple works here as long as it is a sweet one. I have just used milk here and reduced it in quantity to get a thicker consistency but for a quicker and more decadent version, a small quantity of condensed milk or cashew paste can be added. It would make a great treat for gatherings as it can be prepared a day in advance or it can be a part of festive meal for a quick 'sweet' option.
Ingredients: (yield 2 servings)

1 small sized apple (1/2 cup grated)
1 to 2 tbsp. ghee 
1 & 1/2 cups full fat milk 
2 to 2.5 tbsp. sugar
1/8 tsp. ground cardamom
1 tbsp. slivered almonds to garnish
* Peel and grate the apple.
* Heat ghee in a pan, preferably a non stick one and fry the apple on low flame until it softens, about 6 to 7 minutes. Transfer the cooked apple to a bowl and keep it aside.
* To the same pan, add the milk and bring it to a boil. Lower the flame and continue to heat it until the quantity reduces to about 2/3rds (about a cup), stirring intermittently.
* Add sugar and cardamom to the milk and stir until the sugar dissolves. Turn off the stove and stir in the cooked apple. 
* Either serve the kheer warm or let the mixture cool and chill it before serving. 
* Garnish with almonds or other nuts/ dry fruits of your choice.
