Mixed Fruit Halwa

For the day 3 of this week's edition of BM #17, I made use of the near rotting fruits in my fruit basket. I added in some milk powder to get the 'halwa' feel rather than a 'jam' feel. 

It was near guilt free as I used the natural sugars of the fruits and used very little ghee as well.

Here are two more halwa recipes from the past two days..
Red Pumpkin Halwa and Orange Honey Halwa.

Ingredients - 

Apple peeled, cored and cubed 1 cup
Banana sliced 1 cup
Pear 1/2 cup
Grapes handful
Almond Meal 1/4 cup
Milk Powder 1/2 cup
Sugar 5-6 Tbsp
Custard Powder 1 Tbsp
Milk 1/4 cup
Ghee 1 tsp
Mixed Fruit Halwa

Method Of Preparation -

Puree the fruits adding milk as needed. Mix in the almond meal and milk powder as well.

Pour into an over sized microwave safe container. Microwave it on high for about 12-14 min in 2 min intervals stirring in between.

Add in the sugar and ghee. Mix the custard powder in the remaining milk and add it to the simmering mixture in the microwave.

Continue microwaving until the halwa comes together as a single mass. Since I didn't add too much ghee, it was sticky but delectable.

Remove from the microwave and let it cool.

Garnish with roasted nuts of your preference.
