Thought the only dessert you could make with apples is apple pie? Well think again! This Mughlai recipe of apples cooked with sugar, milk and raisins and flavoured with saffron, cardamom and rose water is a treat for all your senses. Rubbing the saffron with your fingertips while dissolving it in the warm water helps release more flavour and a lovely colour from it. You could also put in a few small pieces of diced apple along with the grated apple for some extra body.

Its a great recipe :) A welcome change from the regular rice kheer. I don't like very sweet kheer and thus reduced the quantity of sugar.
