  • After peeling and grating the apples, prepare the halwa immediately, otherwise it will start getting black in colour and lose its natural flavour and taste.
  • Add sugar as per your taste and requirement.
  • After adding mawa, turn the flame on low heat and stir continuously otherwise it tends to get burnt easily.
  • Once you get the right consistency and there is a change in the color of the halwa, switch off the flame.
