A lovely treat when that sweet tooth strikes. It can be made for one or in a batch. It is packed with iron and natural goodness. Add cold milk to it and you have delicious and healthy breakfast. The best part – it takes 10 minutes to put together and 20 minutes to bake. The ingredients are all always in your pantry. So from thought to mouth – it takes a total of 30 minutes.
Prep time: 10 minutes or less, depending on how fast you chop
Cook time: 20 minutes
Serves: 6 (you can make smaller batches too. Just reduce the ingredients in proportion)
4 medium apples (any will do – the tarter the better), peeled and chopped thin
1 tsp cinnamon
Pinch of nutmeg powder
3 tbsp jaggery powder
2 tbsp rajgira (amaranth) flour
2 tbsp nachni / ragi (red or finger millet) flour
1 cup of your favourite muesli (sugar free)
2 tbsp salted butter
- Pre heat the oven to 200 degrees centigrade
- Mix apples, flours, cinnamon, nutmeg and jaggery in bowl and line onto a deep baking dish. If the apples are too sweet, squeeze a bit of lemon onto the apples
- Mix the muesli and butter well and distribute on to the apples
- Cover the baking dish with foil and pop into the pre heated oven
- Remove the foil after 10 minutes and bake uncovered for the last 10 minutes
- Check the apples before removing from the oven – they should be nice and soft. The crumble on top will be golden and beautiful
- Enjoy hot! Be careful while taking the first bite – the apples will have a lot of latent heat leading to tongue burn. I speak from experience!
Note: You can use any seed / millet flour in place of the ones I have used. In case you decide to use whole wheat flour, reduce the total amount to 2 tbsp. For white flour, use 3 tbsp.
