How to make Indian apple pie in a microwave

To be frank the end product of my cooking experiment was not exactly a pie, it was sweet and chocolaty, it was more than a normal pie, it was the Indian apple pie!!. So here are the things you need

  1. Microwave oven
  2. I had a microwave oven without grilling facility. but finally the dish turned out to be nice

  3. Apple - 1
  4. A nice medium sized sweet apple.

  5. Maida - 1.5 tablespoon
  6. This is the answer to bisquick mix, Indian way

  7. Oats - 3 tablespoon
  8. It is tasty and gives a rough touch to the pie and guess what it is healthy too

  9. Butter - 1 tablespoon
  10. Jaggery - 2 tablespoon
  11. tastes best when crushed to semi powder form

  12. Honey - 2 teaspoon
  13. It gives a small change in flavor.

  14. Chocolate melted - 2 teaspoon
  15. If you are having trouble in getting molten chocolate. microwave a small Dairy milk chocolate.

  16. Cinnamon powder - 0.5 teaspoon
  17. Cashew nut (Kaju) - as much as you love
  18. Raisins (Kisamis) - as much as you love

Honey, raisins, chocolate and cashew are my additions to the dish. you can very well forgo those. Jaggery gives a flavor which i firmly believe is Indian. Now comes the part of making the dish. Here are step by step instructions.

  1. Peel the skins off the apples
  2. Peel the skin of the apple completely. After peeling, slice the apple into small pieces. I personally believe the thinner the slice, the better. Take extra care or you can end up with a nasty cut

  3. The mixing part
  4. Mix all the ingredients except raisins and cashew thoroughly. To soften the butter, microwave it for 10 seconds. Use your hands liberally, you are not going to get a good mix unless you use it.

  5. Microwave it
  6. Microwave the ingredients keeping the apples first and then topping it with the mixture we just made. Microwave for about 8 minutes. I believe in checking every 2 minutes just to make sure nothing is going wrong

Your first awesome Indian apple pie is ready to serve. Top it with raisins and cashew. Serve it with a scoop of ice cream to enjoy it to the maximum.
