Recipe Notes

Choose apples which are sweeter in taste for making this kheer.
Grate the apples just before making the kheer to avoid the apples changing its colour, due to oxidation.
Adjust the sugar as per the sweet taste required by you.
You can also add 2 tablespoons of condensed milk to enhance the taste and make the kheer more creamier.
Ensure that the cooked apple mixture is cooled down completely before adding to the milk, or else the milk will start to curdle.
Apple kheer is best served chilled.  The kheer will become little thick when refrigerated.
