It is the season of apples and the market is overflooded with apples. We all know that when the apples are not in the season their prices are soaring high but when in the season these can be purchased without spending too much. So, since apples are in season I thought why not make something out of apples. So here I am sharing the apple halwa recipe. A light dessert that you can make this weekend. If you are on diet or want to make it a little healthy then skip the sugar altogether.

Here is a step by step recipe of the apple halwa.
