Apple Crumble

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

  1. Pre heat the oven to 200 degrees centigrade
  2. 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
  3. Mix the muesli and butter well and distribute on to the apples
  4. Cover the baking dish with foil and pop into the pre heated oven
  5. Remove the foil after 10 minutes and bake uncovered for the last 10 minutes
  6. Check the apples before removing from the oven – they should be nice and soft. The crumble on top will be golden and beautiful
  7. 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.
