  • Saucepan


  • 2 - 3 firm and ripe apples, peeled and grated
  • 1 lite full fat milk
  • ¼ Cup roughly chopped dates
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cardamom powder
  • a pinch of saffron

Ingredients for garnish:

  • 2 tablespoon chopped apples
  • 1 tablespoon sliced dry-fruits


  • In a heavy-bottomed saucepan heat milk. 
  • Add chopped dates, cardamom powder, and saffron. Cook on a medium flame while stirring continuously until milk thickens and reduced to almost half. This process usually takes 15 - 20 minutes over a low flame. 
  • Meanwhile, combine grated apples and cinnamon in a broad non-stick pan. Cook till most of the moisture evaporates and apples turn golden in color with thick jam-like consistency.
  • Remove from the flame, allow it to cool completely and keep aside.
  • Once cooled, add the prepared apple mixture to the reduced milk. Stir nicely.
  • Bring to boil once and then remove from the flame. Before turning off the heat, make sure the kheer has a thick consistency. 
  • Serve apple kheer chilled garnished with sliced dry fruits and chopped apples.
