Apple Jaggery kheer

Apple kheer or Apple payasam is easy to prepare and tastes absolutely heavenly. Again I saw these recipes in my fellow marathoners post. After seeing all the kheer related posts; I understood that the recipe is very easy to make but I wanted to make a difference. So I replaced sugar with date palm jaggery. We all loved this kheer at home. This can be an ideal recipe for any festivals or any special occasions. No one identified that apple was an ingredient in this kheer. Do try this different kheer.


Apple - 2
Milk - 1 litre
Date palm jaggery - 3/4th cup
Ghee - 1 tbsp
Cashewnuts - 5
Dry grapes - 10
Cardamom powder - 1/2 tsp


  • Boil milk on medium heat until it reduces to 3/4 of its original quantity. 
  • Wash, peel and core an apple and grate it.
  • Heat a tsp of ghee and saute the grated apple for a few minutes or until it is cooked. Leave it to cool.
  • Add these apple pieces to the boiling milk. Cook on low heat for few seconds.
  • Switch off stove. Add the date palm jaggery and cardamom powder. Mix well. Taste and adjust the sweetener.
  • Heat the remaining ghee. Fry cashewnuts and dry grapes. Garnish the kheer with this fried cashews and raisins. 


  • Do not add jaggery and boil milk. The milk might curdle.
